Mary Connor realized weeks ago that the supermarket workers were just as battered rising to the occasion of the coronavirus as were many first responders. So she hand-assembled an 8-foot wide greeting card for patrons of the Bedford Hills Shop-Rite to sign.
“Sure, the media has recognized this news story,” Connor says, “but I wanted to have something personal – meaningful – as many families in the area, like mine, were raised at dinnertime from meals we prepared courtesy of weekly grocery shopping at this store.
“The area has seen a lot of changes in the supermarket space with new chains taking over locations but Shop-Rite, Bedford Hills, has stayed put, just like a lot of families have even with their kids grown.
“I’ve been a weekly customer for 35 years, and I never, ever considered the behind-the scenes effort that gets our groceries on the shelf,” Connor adds.
Now she has, and Shop-Rite knows it.
