Hello Wheatsville friends!
It's been great to see so many of you coming in to check out the new
addition and participate in our game, "Where did you hide the bulk
department?!" I am really excited and pelased with the new space and have
gotten so many wonderful comments from you all. I'm so happy that this idea
we had years ago now has nice people like you using it!
If you haven't been in this week, please come by. You'll find the original
store to be in an interesting phase with lots of open spaces and hanging
plastic. Then you'll cross over to the new addition and (hopefully) be blown
away by the new space!
In case you don't know, here are some of the new things in our new space:
*Fresh Baked Bread-* we have in-house fresh baked LaBrea bread for you to
enjoy. So far the response to this has been tremendous and people seem to
really like it. One person said that it was the one thing they were missing
at Wheatsville. I"m so glad to fill that need with this new bread. I've been
enjoying it a lot myself!
Organic, Fair Trade Espresso Drinks!* Yeppers... get your caffeine needs met
through your co-op! And, I'm happy to brag that unlike other places in town,
we use ORGANIC MILK and SOYMILK (at no additional charge) and we even have
organic Chocolate and flavored syrups! Whoa! This really is quite special
and you won't just find it at any old coffee shop, I promise.
*Greatly expanded Frozen Foods*- This department has grown A LOT and so far
people seem to love it. Look for more entrees (including the delicious Amy's
Tamales), more ice cream and non-dairy frozen treats (the coconut milk So
Delicious treats have been a HUGE hit at our house!) and even new and
different burritos! This department is the first FULLY expanded department,
so it can give you a taste of what's to come!
*Expanded seafood selection and quick to fix meat items! *Bryan and Mark
have been whipping up some nice looking cases every day and some product
that is top notch. Don't be shy, step up to the counter and ring that bell!
Someone will get right with you!
*CLOSING EARLY NOTICE:* We will be closing early on Tuesday April 7th at
10pm in order to relocate the registers into their new final home! So, come
on in Wednesday for still more changes!
If you're having trouble with the changes, please don't hesitate to ask for
help! And, don't worry, we're still the same Wheatsville you know and love,
even if we've spruced the place up a bit!
*Coffee with the board this Saturday!*
Come to Coffee with the board this Saturday from 10am-noon. Share coffee and
treats with your board while talking about your co-op, the weather, or the
transformation of society! How many other boards of directors of businesses
make themselves available to chat with you?
*Don't forget about Produce.*
With all the excitement with the new store, don't forget about your green
grocers over in the old store! We'll keep the light on for you! Produce
doesn't get to relocate to their new digs for a while, but they still have
excellent products for your green grocer needs!
We currently have three pound bags of organic 1015 Texas sweet onions, and
conventional loose 1015's. These are very sweet onions. They are great raw
(I've seen people eat them apples, which is not for me, but I've seen it),
and cook down to be even sweeter. They are only availble for a brief time in
the early spring so get them while they last.
*Convenient Produce Near the Coffee*
We have some produce near the self serve coffee area. There are both
conventional and organic bananas, some citrus and a few apples and pears.
Pick some up if you're in a hurry in the deli because fresh fruits are a
Right now, we are offering Pure Luck Herbs, Buena Tierra basil, and Urban
Roots cilantro. As the season progresses look for more fresh spring produce.
*Texas Strawberries! *
Yep, we've got 'em! Come in and get 'em while you can!
*In The Grocery Aisle*
*Steaz Organic Energy Drink:*
Here’s a great one for a hot day. Steaz Organic Energy Drink is a natural
way to get the energy boost you need, and it’s a refreshing drink for the
times when you also need to cool off. This is a different kind of energy
drink made with fair trade Ceylon green tea, yerba mate, acai berry juice,
and other natural ingredients. There are no artificial flavors, colors or
other ingredients. You can try three different flavors at Wheatsville:
berry, diet berry, and orange. To learn about Steaz Organic Energy Drinks go

*LOST KEYS ALERT!!*
On Saturday, March 29th, around 2 in the afternoon while enthusing about the
new deli, a Wheatsville staffer dropped her keys and another staffer
accidentally gave them to a customer who didn't realize they weren't hers.
The folding remote key costs about $250 to replace, so our staffer is very
anxious to recover them. If you have some mysterious keys (and you don't
know where they came from), please bring them by Wheatsville the next time
you're in the store.
Have a great week and thanks for your continued patience during our major
Wheatsville GM and e-mail guy!
