Unsung Heroes #301

Labor Day is already in the rear view mirror.

But it’s never too late to hail the men and women who — quietly, efficiently, thanklessly — make our daily lives easier.

Some of them had a brief moment in the sun in the early days of the pandemic. Others never did.

But to every retail clerk, supermarket shelf stocker or checkout person, restaurant worker, delivery man or woman — and everyone else who labors for us (and may not have had Labor Day off): Thank you.

We don’t always acknowledge, you. Sometimes it seems that we don’t even see you.

Monday was your day. But really, every day should be.

Charle (Charlotte) is a favorite at Balducci’s.

    Charlotte is a legend, and my spirit animal.
    I just adore this human🥰💫

  9. Once Balducci’s changed hands & modernized to self check-out (Which I Loathe) I very nearly ditched them forever!! BUT I still pop in often- just to chat with Charlotte- my all time fave!

  10. Charlotte, you are the ONLY justification for shopping at a store that intentionally gouges…thanks for being there.

  11. We love you Charlie! You always have a twinkle in your eye and a smile – and cool hats too! You bounced back from a tough car accident, still weed your lawn and remember grocery codes and care about the clientele. You are the soul of Balduccis and I love our encounters – at the cash register nearest the door as you like it! Keep on rocking Charlie!!!

  12. Charlie is by far the most prized treasure at Balduccis Westport! A wonderful Lady with a special youthful twinkle in her eyes and graceful smile❗️ Since the Hay Days prior faculty, we appreciate you always 🤗❗️
