Jan's Valu-Mart now stocks local kombucha!
We're excited to be featured in the healthy produce and salad bar section in Deep River's grocery store. Thanks to store owner, Jan Sunstrum, you'll see Mango Lassi and Cranberry Chill kombucha right alongside some of our favourites like Cedar Juices, and Renée's Dressings.
We're always amazed at how much of a variety you can find here in town and appreciate the large assortment of fresh produce. Valu-Mart has seen a few changes over the past year and we're always on the lookout for what's new in store.
Valu-Mart has been the centre of Deep River for quite some time. You could go so far as to say it has been an integral part of our social life. The locals will tell you they can't plan on just popping in for a quick shop because they'll run into about twenty people they know. Catching up with an old friend, checking up on local happenings, making after-work plans... all happening right in store.
In addition to our many large grocery purchases (when you've got 6 in the family, it's either you're making one huuuuuuge shop a week, or you're there just about everyday!) we've enjoyed many a lunch from Valu-Mart, grab-and-go hot meals, and sometimes the deli section will surprise us with yet another new and exciting cheese.
We've got to know the friendly staff (you know it's a great place to work when you're seeing some of the same faces for over twenty years!) and one of us even WAS an employee for three years (oh the high school Valu-Mart days! only just a few years ago, right!? ;)
With all the departments of a large city grocery store, and very accommodating staff and services, you'll know why some out-of-towners come to shop in Deep River. We're stoked to have our kombucha on the shelves just for that reason. Come Summer time, Deep River becomes a popular spot for city folk to grab a bite to eat (an artisan kombucha too perhaps!?), and flock to the sandy shores of the Ottawa River. Summer is a-coming!
A big thanks again to Jan and three cheers to our friends at Valu-Mart!
