Stop & Shop

There are people I see...
But I don't know them personally.
Yet I can truthfully say,
I've come to respect them highly.

They may be folks who work,
At stores I go.
To purchase items,
Where I stop to shop.
In unique and personable environments...
I've come to like a lot.

Friendships I've developed,
I did not expect.
As I spend a few dollars...
Sharing and gaining respect.

And there is one place I travel,
In Bloomfield, Connecticut.
Intending but forgetting...
What I've come to get.

Some places attract,
Because the service and employees...
Are just charismatic.

Dedicated To:
Those sometimes humorous,
Friendly and always respectful employees.
At the Stop & Shop in Bloomfield, Connecticut.
I think you all are terrific.
