Letter From The President
Volume #2 September 2016
In the blink of an eye the summer season has flown by; soon the leaves will be changing, the air will become cooler, and the holiday season will be upon us! We could really tell how the heat was affecting both communities of Bellevue and Port Clinton this summer with the movements of Gatorade, Powerade, and water. Pretty soon we will have local pumpkins displayed for sale; Moore’s Apple Cider is already on the shelves, and Halloween candy will be available before you know it.
Some highlights from this summer were the Ohio sweet corn, Moore’s Peaches from Oak Harbor, and local watermelons that were as sweet as candy; we love supporting local farmers! Speaking of produce . . . in Port Clinton we made a change for the better with our daily supplier in an effort to get the freshest and best assortment of organic fruits and vegetables as well as conventional items. Since May 16th we have partnered with the Crosset Company (http://www.crosset.com) and have been pleased with the results thus far. We are happy to announce that on September 19th we will be making the same switch at our Bellevue location.
As we enter our winter season we will be going into strategic mode and looking at how we can improve both stores. This year in each location we launched the Boar’s Head brand of meats and cheeses in our delis (http://boarshead.com); the reception has been incredible. We love their unique assortment, high quality of products, and they also have a ton of great pre-packaged items. Our favorite Boar’s Head product is their Hummus, and with our family being of Syrian descent, we are incredibly critical Hummus eaters!
With football season already started, don’t forget to pick up the best dips, spreads, ribs, and chicken for your tailgate parties. Our smoked products are becoming more and more popular, and if you haven’t tried our beef brisket yet, be sure to stop in to Port Clinton on Fridays and Saturdays for a sample. GO BUCKS!
