Shaw's Obstacle Course

Anyone notice how the Shaw's in Waltham (River Street) has become an obstacle course in the past few months? The big aisles are filling up with giant pallets of soda and boxes of potato chips, while the narrower aisles have vendor display racks clogging up the aisle every 20 feet. Even the area where people line up to check out has racks of junk that you have to navigate around.

I also noticed in the past few months that the Star Market in Newtonville has replaced the blue Star sign that hangs over the Mass Pike with the orange Shaw's sign. A little-known grocery store history fact: Before the Pike was built, the Newtonville Star was on Walnut street, where the CVS is now. Yes, it was that small!
