Earth DayEarth Day at People's!
Tuesday, April 22nd
Stop by the Co-op on Tuesday, April 22 and help us celebrate Earth Day. People's will be raffling off two pedalpowered bicycles; no fossil fuels required! No purchase is necessary and all shoppers are invited to enter the bicycle raffle. Additionally, member-owners of People's will receive 10% off Bulk items, excluding coffee and herbs. One positive change we can all make is to reduce the use of packaging. By purchasing in bulk, with reusable containers, we are activists for our planet.
