Earth Day

At the registers, FREE

We’re celebrating Earth Day by giving the first 200 customers, that make a purchase of any size, a FREE recycled shopping bag (if they promise to donate their dime to One Dime At A Time.) Just kidding!  But our local non-profit organizations would love it if you remembered to toss your bag that we’re giving you in the back of your car so you can donate your dime to a good cause every time you shop. Those dimes add up!

Also, our Prepared Foods department will be featuring special vegan and vegetarian surprises on our Hot Bar since eating vegetables is a bit more sustainable. From 11:30 – 1:30 pm, a Pop Up Cart will be selling Roasted Veggie Panini Sandwiches (cheap).
