Strawberries are Here!

September 6, 2011, 4:09 pm

It’s time to celebrate! The strawberries are here, courtesy of Ware Farm in Bear Lake! Strawberries are such a colorful, vibrant, juicy arrival in the store and it’s hard not to gorge on them. Strawberries with shortcake is a traditional way to enjoy the red beauties but I am partial to moist, flavorful pound cake. And, of course, real, lightly-sweetened whipped cream! Joy of joys!

Savvy Shopping at Oryana

September 6, 2011, 4:09 pm

Even though our co-op continues to thrive and sales figures are up every month, people still remind us quite often that they believe we are high-priced and out of reach. The implication sometimes is that we are trying to price gouge. Sometimes it’s difficult not to react defensively to this oft quoted accusation. But in all honesty, it’s true that many products we carry ARE more expensive than at other stores. But rarely is the complete picture ever considered when shoppers make such comparisons. The most popular comparison is between our store and Meijer. While this debate deserves a thorough discussion, which we will do in future posts, today we are simply highlighting the many opportunities to be a smart shopper at Oryana and save lots of money on everyday items!
