As the rumors start about the future of the now-empty Super Fresh store, the dream of a Trader Joe's in Salisbury floats tantalizingly in the air, not unlike the intoxicating aroma of the coffee aisle at the grocery.
Knowing that the best causes are those which have a rallying song, here it is:
The Salisbury Trader Joe’s Anthem!
(to the tune of “There Ain’t Nothing Like a Dame”)
With apologies to Rodgers & Hammerstein
We’ve got crab cakes
We’ve got cole slaw
And we’ve got Smith Island Cake.
We’ve got road side stands with produce
Oh, the salads we can make
We’ve got grocery stores to visit
And where we can always go.
What ain’t we got?
A Trader Joe’s.
We’ve got Giant and Food Lion,
And we had a Super Fresh
But for specialty organics
They are second rate, at best
And a field trip to Annapolis
Is just too far to go.
Salisbury needs a Trader Joe’s!
We’ve gone on Facebook to inquire
When will we get our heart’s desire?
Salisbury needs a Trader Joe’s
No other grocery comes close
To the wonders of Trader Joe’s.
Be a vegan or a carnivore
You’ll still be there a while
For both party goods and staples
Overflow from every aisle.
There’s no MSG or transfats or ugly GMOs
That’s why we want a Trader Joe’s!
They’ve got great gourmet treats…
And lots of non-hormoned meats…
And healthy carry out treats…
And really decadent sweets…
And it’s not for elites…
It’s for anyone who eats!
There’s not a thing that’s wrong with living well here
That can’t be cured by putting us near
A brand new, genuine, our own, real Trader Joe’s!
