Have you ever shopped in our bulk department? If you’ve never been before it can seem a little intimidating, but it’s actually very easy….. and fun!
Shopping in bulk is a great way to save money on items that you use regularly. In our bulk bins you’ll find pantry staples like fair trade coffee, loose leaf tea, spices, whole grains, pasta, flour, beans, baking ingredients, and nuts, as well as specialty items like gluten free flours, medicinal herbs, and fair trade chocolate. You can even buy liquids like soap, local honey, vinegar, and oil! Each item has its own unique PLU Number that you write on your container so our cashiers can identify the item and ring it up properly.
So you know what you want to buy, but what should you put it in? For your convenience we have plenty of containers, jars, and bags on hand, which is useful if you’re just getting started. You can also bring and re-use your own containers which prevents waste from ending up in the landfill. Just ask a friendly bulk associate for help labeling the tare weight of your container, and then fill it up!
Right now is an especially good time to stop by the bulk department because we are having our annual Bulk-O-Rama Sale through November 14th. So come check out our bulk department and say hello!
