Christiana Bush, an employee at the Market Basket grocery store in Wilmington, Massachusetts, never believed in ghosts—until she saw one in the bakery, that is.
“I was writing on a cake for a customer,” Bush, a 25-year-old psychology student, explained to TODAY. “And when I turned around to bring the cake back to the counter, I saw the lady in the background—she was staring right at me. I looked down for a second because it didn’t register and when I looked back she was gone.”
You may be wondering what this apparition looked like. Well, buckle up:
“She was old. She had short curly, grandma hair, like every grandmother’s haircut. And she [was] in this white dressing gown and had a white hair cap and she wasn’t wearing shoes,” Bush said. “I thought it was really strange she wasn’t wearing shoes.”
Could she have seen a ghost? Or did she catch a very-much-alive grandma on a bad day? We may never know.
Bush, to her credit, did search the aisles for the elderly woman. If she was still among the living, she may have been in need of some help.
But, of course, the Victorian-era spectre was nowhere to be found. It was almost as if she had vanished into thin air. You might even say Bush was … ghosted.
The frightened employee took to social media with her tale, asking members of a private Wilmington community Facebook page if they’d had similar experiences in the Market Basket store.
“This is going to sound really really strange,” she wrote. “But has anyone seen a ghost in the Wilmington Market Basket?”
“I’ve seen something like this but…younger,” an unidentified person responded, according to the Boston Globe. “[Definitely] around that era tho, the clothes and hairstyle.”
If you’re a little spooked by the whole story, don’t worry. Justine Griffin, Market Basket spokesperson, says the stores are probably not haunted—she then went on to give the greatest public relations spin of all time:
“As far as we know all of our stores are ghost-free,” Griffin said in a statement to the Globe. “But if there’s anything to it, she’s probably attracted to our Victorian-era prices.”
