Shawville’s grocery store is open again. It’s true: we were there this afternoon and bought groceries and everything. The shelves were even mostly full, and prices were more or less where they were before the six-month strike began. According to this sign at the corner of Victoria and Route 148 it reopened to great fanfare on Saturday, but we missed it.
And with that, I hope, the town’s collective stress levels will go down a little bit. It’ll be nice not to have to be quite so organized in our grocery shopping, between trips to Renfrew every one to two weeks and whatever we could find at other stores in town.
