RICHDALE FOOD SHOPS – Found across the street from St. Ignatius, Richdale’s is a hotspot for Boston College students looking to purchase marked up Lunchables or microwavable poke bowls. There are plenty of highlights of the legendary Comm. Ave. marketplace; here are the top eleven.

The Row Dedicated Entirely to Protein Bars

It would be difficult to allocate a diversity of items across a smaller mart like this one. I, for one, am glad that they use an entire row to house every flavor of protein bar ever produced by the human race.

The Produce Aisle

One onion.

A Subway Sandwich Sure to Fuck Up Your 8 Man’s Toilet

Is it just me, or did Subway hit way harder when I was ten years old on a road trip? That shit will clog your lower intestine like hair in the Kostka sinks. 

Kinder Eggs

Don’t miss the Kinder Egg stand! What could be inside? A toy plane? A miniature ring toss? A tab of acid oh fuc̸̩̄͝k̶̭̣̠͝͝ ̸͖̍i̶̪̲͋̉̋̓͑̂͠ţ̴̩̞̀͌̍̋͝’̷̤̪̟̹͍̖̇ŝ̷̨̺̪̖̅͐͜͝ ̴̜͛͝a̴̡̧͉͉̰̻̾̾͛̚ ̷̻͎͖͑̄͠t̸̝̝̻̟͖̿̑́͘͠͝ā̶̮͖͉̹̎̓b̴̜̦̼̺̼̈́̈́̎̾͜ͅ ̵̟̈́̇͌̽̾ŏ̶̧̜͉̯͉̳̈f̶̠̳̙̞͈̼̣̃́̀̈̎̎ ̸̡̱̺̈́̄̑̊̑̔͝ͅä̵̧̛̗̉̌̚ͅç̸͇̥̪̤̬̋͛̅̓̕i̶̹̹̣̻̣̎̀̀͌̚ḓ̸͉̪͉̰͓̍͗͐̒̒̃̍.̴̡̉̕

The Inescapable Feeling that Capitalism is Destroying Small Businesses 

The only way that Richdale’s can keep up with large chains is through insane price markups, and even then they hold inconsistent inventory based on wholesale costs. A store with such an incredible location should be raking it in, but instead they’re being pinched by delivery services and larger convenience stores. I don’t know how to solve this, but I do know you’ll find this feeling within these four walls.
