Zagara's thanks the community for its support after power outage

To the Editor:

Thank you to those who helped organize this unforgettable day. Thank you to everyone who visited, shopped and offered hugs and good luck wishes to me, my family and my employees. Thank you to my employees who work hard every day to make sure Zagara’s Marketplace serves our community as best it can.

Zagara’s Marketplace experienced an unforgettable day on Saturday, Aug. 20. The sun shone bright. Customers smiled wide. Big hugs were offered. Hearty handshakes were given. And a few tears welled up in some eyes, including mine. 

The day contrasted sharply to a previous day when I watched employees work hard in the afternoon sun tossing container after container of food into two 20-yard dumpsters, trashing nearly 200 carts of spoiled product.

I never thought I’d need or want to see a cash mob at Zagara’s. But that day came and I offer thanks, from the bottom of my heart.
