Good Morning Friends!
I just wanted to do a quick post about the grand opening of a new grocery store in the Kirkland area. The Metropolitan Market just opened today in the Houghton neighborhood. Now the Met. Market is not a store I usually shop at because the prices are substantially higher than my usual stores. For Example: 1 lb of organic strawberries is on sale for $4.00 this week, but at Fred Meyer they are on sale 2 for $4. Yikes!
However, I do love a good grand opening celebration! They have some great events going on this month at the store that are sure to be full of free samples and such. I also got a coupon in the mail for a free pineapple!
Go HERE to check out the schedule of events for the rest of the month!
This morning I braved the crowds and stood in line forever and was sadly not one of the 1st 500 guests to get in. Those lucky peeps got a bag full of goodies and coupons, boo hoo! I did get a free reusable shopping bag & magazine for my efforts though and Naomi was also happy to get a balloon. Plus, had it not been only 10 am I probably would have waited in the 2nd line for a piece of cake!
I didn't stay long but I am going to go back in the next few days because they had bananas on sale for only $.27/lb and the baby loaves of Tillamook cheese for $3.97. I plan to get a couple using the $1.00 off Tillamook cheese coupon from the Safeway Dairy books! $3.00 for 2 lbs of cheese is definitely a stock up price. Plus I still need my free pineapple!
Go check it out and let me know what you got to sample and deals you get!
