Sighting of a Victorian-era ghost goes viral

Posted on Monday, 1 April, 2019 | Comment icon 26 comments

Is there really a ghost lurking in the Wilmington branch of Market Basket ? Image Credit:
The story of a woman who saw a ghostly figure in a frozen food aisle has gone viral on social media.
Christiana Bush, who works in the bakery department of a Market Basket supermarket in Wilmington, Massachusetts, recalls the moment she caught sight of an old woman wearing a Victorian-era nightgown and hair cap standing in the frozen food aisle of the store.

She looked down for just a second and when she looked back up the woman had disappeared.

"She looked kind of like melancholy and a little angry," said Bush.

After asking on Facebook if anyone else had seen a ghost in the store, her story ended up going viral, leading to local news coverage and prompting customers to start keeping a look out while doing their shopping in case the alleged spook happened to make another appearance.

Even US Congressman Seth Moulton of Massachusetts wrote about the story on Twitter.

"I had no idea it was going to blow up," said Bush. "I mean I just posted a random status on Facebook saying, 'Hey has anyone seen a ghost' because I just wanted to connect with people.'"

Market Basket has since moved to reassure shoppers that there is nothing to fear.

"As far as we know, all of our stores are ghost-free," said spokesperson Justine Griffin.

This is a place that seems ripe for investigation. If there are those wanting to put in a real investigation they should be doing it. So far we have stories, just stories.

Here is a Boston Globe article. Great article about a possible match tot he ghost, a woman named Hiller. Fun read. This person seems to have been quite the character It seems that there is little to connect the "ghost" sighting to Hiller, but the story of Hiller is fun reading.

Sounds like a site-continuity haunting. Perhaps some research on the building(s) that were there prior to the supermarket would shed more light. Ghosts are simply ethereal 'recordings' of people (alive or dead) that have spent a lot of time In that particular place.

Sort of like that guitar store that "caught" a "ghost" on camera?   (If moving tags and smooshy video were "ghosts".)
