PURCHASE DATE ON IRENE CARDS HAS EXPIRED. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE INCREDIBLE SUPPORT OF THIS PROGRAM!!
Irene Card Details:
I'm sure you're aware that our business was destroyed by the floodwaters of Tropical Storm Irene on August 28, 2011. We are determined to come back stronger and better than ever. And we’d like to do it as quickly as possible, not only to be able to serve our faithful customers, but to put our outstanding staff back to work.
We have flood insurance that will cover a small portion of our losses, and we’ve been approved for a disaster loan from the state, but it will take a lot of time and paperwork to have the cash in hand to pay for the necessary repairs and then to restock the market with the quality food our customers have come to expect from us.
Would you like to help us open more quickly? Here’s our idea. We are creating a program called the Irene Card. It's basically a prepaid shopping card in a wide range of demoninations. The idea is simple. Purchase an Irene Card today and we will use the money now to pay contractors and buy equipment--things we need to start doing right this second in order to open before the holidays.
In return, when we reopen, you can shop to your heart's content AND we will take 10% off every purchase you make with that card. For contributions over $1,000 we'll make it a 15% savings every time you use the card! What a deal! This offer also extends to on-line purchases!
We realize that there are many options right now and that many towns and cities all over Vermont are in need. That’s why we think the Irene Card is a perfect way for our loyal customers to help us with our cash crunch. You are simply pre-buying fresh produce and groceries AND getting a discount with every purchase! It’s a win-win! Just think, with your help, you’ll be able to get the food you’ve enjoyed from us over the past 20 years from us even faster! See complete details...
