Letter: This veteran will do his grocery shopping elsewhere
To the editor:
Last week a Barrington Times article explained that the Shaw’s Supermarkets “in” Barrington, and on the periphery of town, this year had banned military veterans from selling Memorial Day Poppies in the stores’ lobbies for charitable fund raising.
One of the store managers interviewed “…asked that his name not be used…”
As for me, I’ll just switch to buying groceries at nearby Stop and Shop stores and the newspaper can use my name because I’d be embarrassed to hide behind anonymity.
