Some pictures of my trip to the Chelsea Market Basket. The bakery outdid themselves with the adorable giraffe cakes and cookies. (I got some cupcakes, but they didn’t fare so well in transport and were not photo-ready.). And, yes, I am having Market Basket fried chicken for dinner!

This is the receipt that I’m happiest to post.  I am not going to lie.  When the associate at the door said “Welcome Back!” to me as soon as I walked in the door, I nearly burst into tears.  I wish that I wasn’t so surprised that the good guys actually won this one.  I was at the Chelsea market basket and you could tell that they are still trying to stock it up, but the associates seem to be working furiously to keep the shelves looking clean and not too bare. 

It was really heartwarming.  All the customers were walking around the store with smiles on their faces and chit chatting in the aisles with the associates and each other.  With all the awful things going on in the world it is nice to see people relating to each other on such a human level.

Submission from @emc20 who says:

Just wanted to make sure you were aware that MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell did a great piece on Market Basket last night (8/28/14)! It can be found under www.msnbc.com/the-last-word, under The Rewrite (on the left), appropriately entitled “See you at Mahket Bahsket.” Lots of clips from Artie T’s speech and just a really great summation of the whole ordeal. Hope you enjoy! —A fellow Market Basket fan.
Thanks for the tip!

Sure a sense of community and people getting back their jobs is great and skittles and rainbows and all, but these chips are one of the main reasons I’m glad this place is back in business  (at Market basket)

It’s important to have priorities. 😜
