The Brighton Mills Shaw's was playing Chanukah music this morning:

Right now the store is broadcasting Haveinu Sholom Aleichem!

Meanwhile, a local group is already focusing on Thanksgivukkah next year - when the two holidays overlap for the first time since 1918.

Too early

To get to the meat cases at the Hyde Park Shaw's today, we had to get around all these displays of Halloween candy. As we left early this evening, the thermometer in our car read 84.

What? Too soon? Tell that to the Auburndale Shaw's, where Loriane DiSabato snapped this photo on the 23rd:

Wicked Local Allston/Brighton reports a man was nabbed at the self-checkout line at the Western Avenue Shaw's hitting the banana price for the red grapes he'd put on the scale.

Halloween, already?

I was not ready to be confronted with this when I walked into the West Roxbury Shaw's yesterday (it was right at one of the entrances). To paraphrase our own Suldog, "Labor Day comes first!"

Kiddie cart in E-5

Spotted at the Shaw's on Spring Street in West Roxbury. Guess what police district the store is in.

Valentine's meat

At the West Roxbury Shaw's, which also had a heart-shaped shrimp ring for two (it came with two small containers of cockatail sauce).

The West Roxbury Shaw's still had some of these for sale today - granted, with $1 off with a Shaw's card, but, really, who would buy one?

Graham watched in amazement as a guy wheeled up to the register at the Packard's Corner Shaw's tonight with 18 gallons of milk, 8 each of whole and 2%, one each of skim and 1%. Plus, of course, toilet paper. He adds:

While Stop & Shop workers were busy ratifying a new contract this weekend, workers at Shaw's produce warehouse in Methuen were going out on strike, Channel 4 reports. That could mean you'll see only wilted lettuce at your local Shaw's and Star Market - assuming you cross the picket lines the workers could be putting up.

Boston Police report a guy who made off with a salad from the salad bar at the Pru Shaw's yesterday tried to hold a woman up on Huntington Avenue even as he was stuffing the salad into this mouth.

A security guard who was trailing Hector Tetzaguic, 38, of Dorchester, grabbed him and held him until police arrived, BPD says. He was charged with shoplifting and attempted larceny from a person.

Innocent, etc.

When you walk into Shaw's on Spring Street now, the very first thing you see is a display of Passover foods (except, strangely, macaroons).

Call them Shaw's or Star Market or Shirley, but just make a decision and stick with it already.

No, it's not rapidly increasing food prices. It's that we're all in a food rut:

Shaw's Supermarkets said Tuesday it has forged a partnership with America's Test Kitchen that aims to get shoppers out of what they call a "food rut."

West Bridgewater, Mass.-based Shaw's said the initiative, called "Get Inspired," was designed specifically to stop New Englanders from sleep-shopping through the grocery aisles, cooking the same uninspired meals, week after week. ...

What?!? The signs in the freezer aisle aren't inspiration enough?!?
