From BTB to Venezuala
Ahmed concedes it was Seeburger who took Sunshine to court, not the other way around, "But the judge said, 'Congratulations, the lease is broken.' On the day we had to give [Seeburger] the keys, I wanted to give them to the police [instead of to Seeburger]. Maybe that's why she says she evicted us."
Ahmed describes with relish the two glaring parties sitting in the parking lot of Sunshine, waiting for the police to arrive for the key handoff. "And it took them a few minutes, because it wasn't an emergency. I love the law in the U.S.A. When there's a law, you don't have to worry about nothing."
The Sunshine Supermarket is still ramping up its inventory, with plans to carry meats, cheese, frozen food, and Persian and Mexican groceries in addition to the produce and Middle Eastern staples now on the shelves.
