Just an update to my post "Breaking the Law". Here is a recent article from the Charlottetown paper about what has happened to the Mermuys' business since they started selling the egg cartons ;)
I am amazed by the response. On Monday, I went into The Turning Point and was able to get their last dozen eggs. They can hardly keep them in the store. I had a chat with a gentleman waiting to get his order rung through (he actually let me have the last full dozen eggs and took a carton with only 11 eggs in it because one had broken). What a nice man!
Also, I discovered that eggs at the Atlantic Superstore (where I do the bulk of my shopping) are now $2.99 a dozen for large. The "local eggs" are about 25 cents cheaper and they are so big that the covers on the extra large cartons will just close over them. Now I can buy local AND be frugal!
Thanks for visiting today!
