I was there the other night picking up something for dinner and I spotted the produce manager putting away some apples. I asked him if he ever had bruised or damaged apples, and if so, could I buy them for my horse? He said they usually have a bunch of them every day that they just throw away, and he would save them for me to go and pick up the next morning.
I got to the store at 7am yesterday morning and a huge box of apples was waiting for me FOR FREE!
I was soooo excited and so grateful. I usually buy bruised apples at Stop and Shop, another local store that is part of a huge chain, but I pay about $1.50 for 4-5 apples. There were about 30 apples in this box and I paid a grand total of $0. The produce manager said to me, "we're just going to throw them out, why would we charge you for them?"
So last night after my pretty decent ride, I revealed the big box of apples to Lucy and her eyes just about bugged out of her head.
