West Somerville Foodmaster - last day is this Saturday

Johnnie's Foodmaster at Broadway and Alewife Brook Parkway had a 'Last 3 Days' sign up today. The shelves are getting pretty empty, and people inside confirmed that Saturday will be their last day of business. Liquidation discounts are at least 40% now.

At Somerville Patch, it looks like some folks are putting together a funeral vigil for the store, taking place Saturday at 10 am. If enough folks show up for that, it might send a useful message to other grocery chains that customers want to continue shopping at this location.

(and by the way - they have a lot of Mary Jane candies for sale. Anyone from PMRP want to grab it for resale at future shows?)
