Earth Fare is a natural foods grocer here in the Southeast. They have a number of locations. I know the common perception of natural food grocers is how expensive they are, and they are for good reasons- which you can read about here. But however expensive the grocers can be depends on how you shop there. Earth Fare makes it very easy to frequent without coughing up much dough. I have lunch there about 3 times a week because I can get a hearty bowl full of fresh vegetables for about $3 and a yummy bottle of tea for $1. To boot, I use a coupon- or 2- for free products that they give out every week! This week’s coupon is for a free bag of russet potatoes with ANY purchase.
Head to their Web site at earthfare.com, scroll down to the bottom where you can sign-up for the newsletter. Every Wednesday you’ll get an awesome coupon for free this, or 50% off that. Last week was a FREE pound of coffee and a FREE box of granola with ANY purchase. To say I was on that like bees on honey is an understatement. How’s the honey bee population doing now anyway?
Earth Fare doesn’t stop there with their weekly coupons. Every week they also TwitPic a bonus coupon. You can either check their TwitPic feed for updates or follow them on Twitter and get the heads up. You can use their Wednesday coupons-which are good for a week-at the same time as their TwitPic coupons-which are usually only good on Fridays. That is a really inexpensive way to get your healthy food on!
Earth Fare also has some of the most spectacular customer service I have ever experienced. I’ve told my twin up north about some of my service experiences with them and eventually she was so touched she fanned them on Facebook even though the closest one to her is hundreds of miles away. Yeah you may get an angsty 20-something at the register here and there… but their upper management is second to none.
The record number of “Coexist” bumper stickers I’ve seen outside the Earth Fare I frequent most is 5, btw. Peace out.
