Wegman's bagger

    SAUGUS, Massachusetts (WBZ) — A Wegman’s worker is hoping one of his customers will notice an extra item in their grocery bags.

Martin Rivera is a bagger at the Medford store on Mystic Valley Parkway. He thinks his wedding ring may have slipped off his finger at work. It’s the first time that finger has been bare in nearly 24 years.

“It’s not as tight; if it was tighter, I would have that ring (indentation) there. I don’t have that though,” he told WBZ-TV.

And that’s part of the problem. The somewhat roomy ring seems to have slipped off in air-conditioned Wegman’s as he was ringing up groceries at work on Tuesday.

“Yesterday was kind of busy, too. It was constant customers coming in and out. I have no idea what customer it was or whose bag I was in. Somehow, I’m sure, it slipped off my finger,” Martin said.

So, it’s possible a customer may have gone home with more than what was on their shopping list. This would have happened sometime between 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday at the Medford store.

Martin’s wife Karen’s ring is the same design, and neighbors north of Boston have been sharing her photo all over social media. The Saugus couple has hope, encouraged by so many strangers who want to help.

“Even a police officer from Medford saw it and she said, ‘I’ll check in the police station and see if it gets turned in there too,'” Karen told WBZ.

With their August anniversary just weeks away, the couple’s fingers are crossed that their treasure might turn up in someone’s recycle bin or reusable bag.

“You know, you take your groceries out of the bag, and once the groceries are done, you don’t look for anything else. You just fold the bag up and put it away. I’m hoping that’s what happened,” Martin added.
