You are right tt, I don't like either of them, but I pick the least evil of them. I just love TJ's too much. From where you are, it may be different. I just hop on 128 - then 95 and take the 114 exit. Agree, lots of lights. But I just stay in the most right lane and follow the traffic. So far I really never had a parking problem there.
Rt. 1 is another story. I truly fear for my life exiting from that parking lot. I do go there, whenever I have other business to do on Rt.1. I do like the store and have made friends with several of the regular employees.
Once I happened to ask for something specific to send to my son, while he was in Japan. They went out of their way to get it for me. So now, I am the lady w/ a son in Japan, even though he is not there any longer. LOL
After I came home, I went to Shaw's (on Water Street in Wakefield - not Lynnfells parkway). They have some excellent sales just for today, and I wanted to pick up just a couple of things. There were picket lines and a huge crowd. Fortunately police officers were there to guide the traffic. But it took me 15 minutes to get in and another 30 minutes to get out of there. I asked one of the employees - one of the long timers, I knew from when she was at the Lynnfells Star Market, why they were striking. She had no idea. She wasn't even aware there was a picket line outside and went to look out the door. It really makes me wonder, whenever there is a strike or a picket line, is it with the approval of the employees - or is it just a few hard necks blowing up a storm? I truly do not think anyone is gaining anything.
Some of the picketers today looked like a bunch of high school kids, they had picked up after classes.
In Response to Re: Easter Greetings
You and I disagree on which route, 114 or 1 is the worst, Pingo. I hate that stretch of 114 with all the lights and 3 lanes that converge to 2 and then out to 3 again. T.J.'s parking lot there is insane too, theirs on Route 1 is so much easier to maneuveur. I know what you mean about the stores being mobbed, Weds. when I picked up things for my dinner S&S was. Have the sugar bunnies made - must remember next year to try to find a smaller bunny cutter, really don't like this big one. Tomorrow I'll make the choc chip cookies and perhaps the meringues, I've a feeling neither family would even try those. And, I'll make the Spanish Cream and color Easter eggs. Looking forward to being able to sit outside Sunday.
