This New Hampshire grocery store found themselves in quite a pickle last week when their entire cash register system crashed unexpectedly.
While some businesses may have responded to the crisis by asking their customers to leave empty-handed, the Hannaford supermarket in West Lebanon let their shoppers walk out of the store with their groceries for free.
According to the store manager, the registers were not expected to be repaired for at least an hour. With roughly 50 people in line, the employees did not want to make people wait around – so they simply bagged up everyone’s groceries and happily sent them on their way.
The store reportedly gave away between $3,000 to $5,000 worth of groceries that day – but the shoppers apparently had the most priceless reactions.
“Hannaford just took the worst shopping experience I’ve ever had and made it into one of the best,” a customer told WPTZ in an interview.
