CARING FOR LOCAL AND GLOBAL COMMUNITIES

As a company, we deeply value giving back to those who have helped us succeed. Each of our stores has a unique way of connecting with their local communities to best serve that community’s needs. We reach out both nationally and globally: to provide microcredit loans in developing countries, promote ethical trade with our global partners, provide healthier choices in schools and improve access to nutritious food for underserved neighborhoods.
