Good afternoon from Butler & Bailey Market.
I hope everyone is doing well! I am happy to report we are all doing well here at the store. I have gone “radio silent“ for the last several weeks. It is not because I don’t have a lot to say. I would like to think it’s because I’m smart enough not to say it.
I do want to let you know we are changing our store hours starting this Sunday, the 21st. We will now be open seven days a week until 8:00 pm. So, Monday through Saturday we will be open from 9am to 8pm and on Sundays, 10am to 8pm. It has been quite the journey to get to this point!
In a lot of ways, I would just like to forget the last several months. The problem with that is, I wouldn’t have the memories of all the positive things that I have come to realize because of them.
I wouldn’t know how strong, resilient, and caring our staff is at the store. It’s one thing to do a good job in normal times; it’s another thing to do it with a life-threatening virus coursing through the world. I couldn’t be prouder of them!
I wouldn’t know how far reaching this community extends. We have received cards, letters flowers, food, masks, gloves, sanitizer, and all kinds of other care packages from perfect strangers that don’t live near or shop in the store. They just knew of us and cared enough to go out of their way to show us how much they appreciated us being here.
I certainly knew how special our customers and the Rocky Hill community are, but I didn’t know the extent of it. Just like our staff, they have gone over and beyond to rally around this store and community. From helping to celebrate my mother’s birthday, respecting virus guidelines, and adapting to the ever-changing store hours, limited quantities of inventory, and everyone’s high level of anxiety. We really appreciate your unwavering support during these times!
Well, go figure! The power just went out with a store full of people! If it’s not one thing it’s another… I guess I need to go. Welcome to another day in the Grocery Life!
Thanks for letting us be a part of your community.
