    You’d rather she stole from Key Food?

    Hmm, on a related note, I wonder how vinyl LP sales would do at KF now that Housing Works will be gone.

    It’s so sad. Crate diggers are weeping into their Discwasher cleaning pads.

    I REALLY hope they can find a location still in the neighborhood but I doubt it honestly. It was so convenient for donating books/clothes/etc.

    You’d think the old Starbucks location landlord would donate access to her space to Housing Works just to get a write off until they choose to rent it. Insane!
