Here is Someone Who Won Free Groceries at Independent



From–Did You Win Free Groceries in Carleton Place Yesterday?

I received this yesterday from a customer who was one of the people that won free groceries at Mitchell’s Independent store in Carleton Place on Sunday. They would like to remain anonymous-but here is how they felt and what happened. So thank you for sharing!



The store was having “market madness” and handing out free samples. There was also a quartet band playing and cake being served at the entrance to the store.  When were in the checkout line, a group of employees and the owner/manager of the store came to the front with confetti canons.  They were yelling excitedly and then the owner/manager gave a speech about supporting local community and the store.  Then he announced that everyone in line at all of the cashes would be getting their groceries for free.  It was pretty fantastic.  Our bill was close to $200 and they were covering up to $250 per person without any charges.  It was a complete surprise and very much appreciated.

Author’s Note: Did you know that everyone behind the rope who was not eligible for the free groceries still got a $25 Independent gift certificate from Jeff Mitchell?
