    Burlington Chick-fil-A swamped by supporters on ‘Appreciation Day’

    BURLINGTON — Hundreds of people jammed into the Burlington Mall’s food court Wednesday at the Chick-fil-A to support and dine at the controversial fast-food chain and to voice opposition to efforts from the mayor of Boston to block the restaurant from locating in the city.

    In a nationwide event dubbed “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” by former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, scores waited in a line that spilled outside the court’s perimeter, with an attendance so high that mall security maintained a constant watch.
