Wellness Sale

WELLNESS DEPARTMENT SALE – SAVE 20% on vitamins, supplements, bath, body care and more, Thursday January 24 – Sunday January 27. Shoppers, owners, and board members share some of their favorite wellness items, to help illustrate all this vast department has to offer!

Did you know our wellness department sale includes soap? Herb is picking up some of his favorite Dr. Bronner’s. It’s effective, versatile, earth-friendly and you can even refill bottles in bulk.

The sale includes toothpaste. Jessika and Baby Willa are picking up their favorite kind from Desert Essence. It not only tastes great, but it’s made from good stuff like baking soda and essential oils.

The sale includes supplements too. We asked Angela Sidlo for one of her personal favorites. (She should know what’s good because she’s not only a co-op board member, but also has her own business as a health coach.) Angela really likes CALM from Natural Vitality for managing stress.

Due to its popularity, we’re also going to point out that the sale includes CBD, which stands for cannabidiol. This cannabis compound is said to have a host of benefits without making people feel stoned. From relaxation to pain relief, there are lotions, chocolates and many other products to try. Learn more about CBD.

These are just some examples of the awesome products included in our wellness department. If you’re not sure what’s included in the sale, just ask a friendly staff person.

Why are we doing this sale? The new year brings a fresh opportunity for taking great care of yourself. We wanted to make it a little easier to do that by putting our entire wellness department on sale for four days this week.

Please note, the discount is limited to items in stock at time of purchase. Does not stack with case discounts or owner discounts.

In the Bulk Section

More and more shoppers are being enticed into the bulk aisles of their food stores—and for good reason! Buying in bulk is great for your budget (buy just the amount you need, at the best prices) and the environment, since there’s less packaging required. With the opportunity to see and smell a product outside the package before you buy, it’s a fun way to shop too.

Start by stocking up on staples: the bulk section is full of great buys for your pantry, like beans, nuts, cereals, flours, and grains. You can take advantage of the bulk section to sample small amounts of nut butters (many stores even offer the option to grind your own), pastas, and teas and coffees before committing to a large quantity.

Whatever your recipe, herbs and spices can be bought in just the amount you need for a fraction of the price of whole jars. It makes it easy and cheap to explore new cuisines that call for small amounts of herbs and spices you don’t stock in your pantry. Also look for pet food and household and toiletry items, such as laundry detergent and soaps.

Besides being more cost-effective, buying bulk allows you to experiment with new foods. Bring home just enough quinoa for one meal, for example, or enough currants to substitute for raisins in your oatmeal one morning, and then come back for more when you know it’s a winner. No section of your co-op is more fun to browse!

If you’re new to bulk buying, don’t be shy; co-op staff will be happy to help you get started with weighing and marking your items.

BOGO Kombucha

We love Humm Kombucha for several reasons. For starters it’s made in Oregon, in the beautiful city of Bend. It is organic, GMO-free, and gluten free. Have we mentioned it’s delicious? That’s not the best part though. The best part is, it’s ALIVE! That means this refreshing drink is full of live cultures, beneficial bacteria and B vitamins.

So how could this get any better, right?! What if we gave it to you for FREE? You might think this is too good to be true! But seriously, hurry on down to your local Co-op the weekend of April 8-9 for our BOGO kombucha flash sale. Buy one Humm Kombucha (lemon-ginger or coconut-lime) and get one free until we run out.
