Since most of the bees froze this winter, local honey has been scare or not existent. We excited to share we found another supplier who has A LOT of honey. So if you are looking for a little honey or a lot of honey – stop in. It’s available in the honey bear, 2, 3 or 5 pound. We think you’ll like the sweet low price.
It’s that time of year again where emotions vary. Some are excited (parents & students?); some are not (students?). Looking for some munches for lunches or after school snacks? For the next few weeks, watch for our “Back to School Deals” throughout the store. This week, buy 3 packages of shelf stable cheese, get 1 FREE. Try either smoked cheddar or green onion. They don’t need to be refrigerated until open, but since both of them are so delicious, you won’t need to worry about putting them back in the frig – they will disappear quickly.
