Co-op Carnival, May 10, 2014
Natural Times, April/May/June 2014
By Cristin Burns, Marketing Manager
The Co-op is turning 40 and it’s party time. Over the past forty years we’ve changed locations twice, our name three times and served thousands upon thousands of customers. We couldn’t reach this milestone without thanking everyone who has made this possible. And we’re showing our appreciation in a variety of ways.
On Saturday, May 10, from 3 pm-8 pm join us for Co-op Carnival. The road between New Leaf Market Co-op and Crispers will be filled with kid-friendly games like Duck Pond and Nose Pick (can you guess what this entails?), face painting, and a dunk tank staffed by the Tallahassee RollerGirls. Purchase an anniversary t-shirt (or bring a Co-op shirt of old) and create a one-of-a-kind creation at our tie-dye station.
Tallahassee’s Therapy Pets will be roaming the crowd and the Animal Shelter will be present with adorable pets in need of loving homes. Make sure you leave time to cuddle!
A carnival isn’t a carnival without snacks! Complimentary all-natural snow cones, all-natural popcorn and New Leaf Market Co-op Bakery birthday cake will be available for all. Beer lovers will be treated to free beer courtesy of local Grasslands Brewery, Tri-Eagle and the Co-op, while supplies last.
Beginning at 3 pm, local performers and musicians will delight us with their talent. The fun will culminate with local band Trial By Stone performing from 6:30 pm-8 pm. Kick back and enjoy Trial By Stone’s unique mix of roots reggae and high-octane ska with a snow cone, a beer or maybe just a smile on your face.
Inside the store the party continues with low priced hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie dogs on the hot bar, great sales, and the beginning of our 40 Weeks of 40% Off.
For 40 weeks, the Co-op will offer 40% off of at least one item. Look for special 40 Weeks of 40% Off sale signs to find these impressive bargains.
While you’re shopping, take a few moments to register to win a bike, one of five fantastic gift baskets or other great giveaways. New giveaways are being added daily!
Owners, check your mailboxes for postcards good for 10% off your transaction between May 10-June 1, 2014 (excluding 40% off items). If for some reason you do not receive an owner appreciation postcard, please update your address at the service desk for a replacement postcard.
