I have called Chelsea my home for as many years as I have been alive, and have come to appreciate all it has to offer. Now as a parent, I look at the community differently than I did as a single person. I have come to realize that the great people of this community make it what it is.
As I drive through Chelsea, and after reading stories on Chelsea Update, I have noticed several businesses supporting the community above what their business entails. I would like to highlight those here.
At the corner of Main St. and Old US-12, CVS stands where the old video store once was. Their sign, which advertises sales and specials for CVS, also has messages promoting events in the community.
Mostly for school events, this service to the community is a testament to the importance of the people of Chelsea to the success of the store. Justin, the assistant manager I spoke with also mentioned supporting St. Mary’s fish fry, and other benevolences as “corporate will allow.”
Thank you CVS, for supporting the Chelsea community.
CVS offers a drive-through pharmacy, photo services, flu shots, and a variety of medicines and vitamins, as well as basic groceries.
(Publisher’s note: If you know of a business that goes above and beyond, please contact me at email@example.com for a spotlight story.)
