A Fall River Grocer has reportedly been fined for not wearing masks. Something the owner disputes.
Mike St. Pierre, owner of Family Foods Grocery Outlet at 323 William S Canning Blvd, stated that his business was fined $500 for not wearing masks and posted a picture of the violation he received with some comments concerning his thoughts on the fine.
“Thanks for the toilet paper city of Fall River.”
Handing out Covid fines like dictators. You’re bull**** order is unconstitutional. We’ll see you in court, you can bank on that! Illegally attacking businesses that pay your taxes. Genius! Shame I wasn’t here to speak with the arrogant tough guy speaking down to my employees with masks on. Who the hell says ” You guys better cut the s***” you pencil pushing State guinea pig. Shut us down if you think you’re smart… Bunch of scumbags!”
Fall River Reporter contacted St. Pierre to get more detail concerning the fine.
“Employees/ Cashiers wear masks all day long. They said they watched outside a few days ago and 3 employees weren’t wearing masks which was most likely me putting out frozen food. Even though I stay away from customers as I do so every Monday.”
St Pierre is confident in Family Foods Grocery Outlet’s safety protocols during the pandemic.
“We invite Mayor Paul Coogan and City Council President Cliff Ponte to visit our store to see our Covid Safety Protocol. Sending goons to fine struggling businesses is a disgrace to the city.”
