Partial Foods is Stain'd-by-the-Sea's only supermarket. Once, a young Lemony Snicket was involved with the theft of honeydew melons from this store. The owner and worker at Partial Foods, Polly Partial, soon found him and reported him to the Officers Mitchum, the only policemen in the town. Snicket just got away with his crime with the help of Cleo Knight's fictional Dilemma car.
At a later date, schoolchildren were forced to steal all the honeydew melons from Partial Foods for Hangfire by the villainous Sharon Haines. Lemony Snicket watched this event from a nearby trashcan where Ornette Lost spotted him and they sneaked in a quick conversation.
