Gourmet Warehouse Customer Appreciation Day Saturday, May 4th

3 May


There are two places in this city, I could get lost in for hours. The first would be any library or bookstore,  the second is Gourmet Warehouse. I love good food, making it, eating it, or just thinking about making or eating it. Gourmet Warehouse has pretty much everything a cook, baker or entertainer could want or need.  There is the cook ware, the bake ware, sauces, snacks, prepared foods, frozen foods, small appliances, gift ware, aprons, cookbooks, candles, every utensil you could imagine and wine glasses. And of course storage containers to help you organize your kitchen so you can find what you need when you need it! This is just the short list.

So if there is anything you want or need, this Saturday, May 4th is the day to head down to Gourmet Warehouse, 1340 East Hastings Street, for their Customer Appreciation Day.   Everything in the store is 10% off from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  The first 120 customers to make a purchase will receive a free Epicurean Cutting Board.   There will also be a draw for a SodaStream machine. Like most Saturdays in the store, there will be delectable goodies for tasting. Yum!
