Boo light special? Market defends self against ghost claim
WILMINGTON, Mass. (AP) — A New England supermarket chain is spiriting away rumors that one of its stores is haunted.
A spokeswoman for Market Basket says in a statement to The Boston Globe that “as far as we know all of our stores ghost-free” after someone posted on social media this month about seeing an apparition at a store in Wilmington, Massachusetts.
The person said the ghost was “an old Victorian era woman in her nightgown ... near the frozen peas.” Hundreds of people weighed in, including others who claimed to have seen a ghost in the store.
Justine Griffin, the Market Basket spokeswoman, says that if there is anything to the ghost story, it’s probably because she’s “attracted to our Victorian-era prices.”
