365 things to do in Worcester County - Go shopping for Thanks Giving meal at Market Basket in Leominster . Today's blog is about the best place to shop for Thanks Giving meal. Notice, I did not say the best time to shop. If we are talking time, I would have to say that I probably missed the opportunity for "empty" store. But the Thanks Giving Rush is very professionally handled. All the registers seam to be open and I waited less to check out than on any other day in any other store. How cool is that?
The efficiency is only one reason why shopping for Thanks Giving meal at Market Basket is making my 365 list. The selection was actually pretty good, for Market Basket. There were at least 4 different brands of Turkey and since I believe that we pay more for the name, I went with the Market Basket brand. I can't imagine a turkey walking around saying, hey I'm better because Butterball raised and fed me and I'm worth more.
Speaking of Turkeys, there are a lot of advertising in the paper for best price per pound, you might say that the turkey "has a price on it's head". Sorry couldn't help myself. Anyway, I was worried that I wasn't going to get a good deal because Price Chopper had an ad going for $.69 cents or so and I thought that it was a great price. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to pay $.59 per pound. Who said there is not good buys in Worcester County?!
