Party like it's a Grand reOpening!
I try not to send too many e-mails, but we're so dang excited about our Grand re-Opening Celebration that I just can't help myself!

Visit with one of Organic Valley's Dairy Farmers

We'll be providing OFF SITE parking at Mid-Town Medical Parking Garage on W. 38th between Lamar and West Ave. The Rockin' Rides Bio-diesel shuttle will pick you up at the 37th street side of the garage and bring you back to Wheatsville. There is also parking in the neighborhood on Saturday.
We're also featuring some of the best DEALS ever this Saturday (while supplies last)
Organic Bananas for just 69 cents a pound!
Organic Broccoli for just 99 cents per pound!
Amy's Organic Burritos Buy one, get one free!!!
16 oz latte, mocha or cappuccino for the amazingly low price of $1.50!!!
Boars Head Mesquite Smoked Turkey for just $6.99 a pound!
Boars Head Muenster for $2.99 a pound!
Popcorn Tofu on the Hot Food Bar for just $7.99 a pound!
So, come on down and celebrate with us!
Special note: while we would love to have you all come to the party, we know that some of you are just looking to shop on Saturday. While we will do everything we can to send partiers to our parking garage, parking will still be hairy during the party. Sooo... Please consider getting your shopping done early on Saturday if you can. And of course, walking, biking or bussing to Wheatsville is ALWAYS a good option!
Please(!) if you are coming for the party and planning to stay for a while we ask that you park off site to preserve whatever parking we can for those folks that just want to get in and shop. We really appreciate your help with this!
I am SOOOOOO looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
Wheatsville GM, e-mail guy and expectant party host!
