How Do You Like These Apples?

Hello everyone,

As we come off the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we're wishing all is well with you and yours. Take care of yourself out there with the snow and ice! We need you healthy and whole.

This week, I want to direct your attention to the best price on Honeycrisp Apples ANYWHERE in Kalamazoo: 3lb bags of local Honeycrisp from Schultz Fruitridge Farms are ONLY $3.49 at PFC.

And this weekend, Friday through Sunday, come and get all varieties of Schultz 3lb Bags of Apples for that same 2 for $7 deal!

Have a wonderful week and we hope to see you soon!



We're Grateful for You

Greetings PFC family,

It is a time for gratitude. As we head into Thursday, and all PFC staff takes a day away from work to be with friends and family, we want you to know how much we appreciate your commitment to making Kalamazoo a better place by choosing PFC. This is work we could not do without you, and every dollar you spend at PFC is fuel for good things to keep blooming and blossoming out of this store and the markets we manage.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with gratitude and love.

And once you wake up from your food coma, we'll be here for you with these fun events:

  • Black Friday - open regular hours, a calm amidst the storm.
  • Small Business Saturday - a great day to kick off your gift shopping with demos and samples from Kalamazoo Herbals, DoughChicks, and Milk & Quackers. Lots of local, fairtrade treats to be found at PFC! Looking to gift a fun, interactive, educational experience? Purchase a cooking class voucher.
  • Cider Monday - enjoy Free Apple Cider Samples 10am to 3pm, and get some face-time with your neighbors and your friendly Co-op staff on Cyber Monday

Thank you for supporting PFC!

* It turns out that "skosh" is short for the Japanese word 'sukoshi' meaning a little bit. This word came back to the US after WWII.
