Wishing Wells . . . Coins for Pets!

coins-for-pets-2015-sidebar2

Most people treat their pets just like family. They show them love and affection; make sure they have plenty of water and nutritional food; and get plenty of exercise. In fact, you probably have spent plenty of time in our pet aisles trying to decide on just the perfect toy, food, or treat for your furry friend.

Unfortunately that is not the case for all pets. But the good news is there is a safe refuge for those animals that have become lost, left behind, or abused . . . and they are our Local Animal Shelters! Acme Fresh Market proudly supports our local animal shelters through our Coins for Pets Wishing Wells! 100% of the money donated by our customers is given to our local animal shelters!

Acme Fresh Market Opens World Class Store – Gives Back to the Green Community

9-19-14_GreenSampleEvent_WebBanner1
When Acme Fresh Market opens the doors of its new, World Class grocery store in at 3875 Massillon Road, Green, Ohio on October 16th, the local company will immediately begin giving back to the Green community.

Katie Albrecht Swartz, Director of Marketing for Acme Fresh Market, explained “A major part of the planning for opening our new store in Green has been to ask ourselves – how can we meaningfully give back to the Green community? As a local, family-owned company, it is very important to us to continue our 120 year history of supporting the communities where we operate stores.”

Acme Fresh Market will donate 1% of all Saturday October 18 and Sunday October 19 sales to the Green Local Schools. Superintendent Jeff Miller is thrilled with the contribution. “Acme Fresh Market sought out the Green Local Schools and asked us what they could do to help the kids of the Green Community. Contributing 1% of sales to our schools was Acme Fresh Market’s idea – we are appreciative, and excited to welcome them as a great community partner. Support your Green Local Schools by shopping Acme Fresh Market on October 18th and 19th!”

If supporting the Green Local Schools isn’t enough of a reason to get you to visit the store October 18th and 19th, stop by for free food! Acme Fresh Market in Green is hosting a Community Food Sampling Event with over 15 free food sample stations throughout the store on October 18th and 19th from 11am to 4pm. There will also be prizes, contests, and games.

Another way that Acme Fresh Market is giving back is by donating 10% of a new line of “Bulldog Strong” apparel to the Green Local Schools. “We met with Jim Trout, President, over lunch at our Elementary School cafeteria, and he came up with the idea of partnering to design a new line of “Bulldog Strong” apparel. This supports our initiative to promote the entire school system with the new “Bulldog Strong” slogan. We understood that Acme Fresh Market truly wanted to be our partner when they came back and said not only would they help design and market the apparel, but they’d also donate 10% of all sales to the Green Local Schools,” explained Assistant Superintendent Kevin Finefrock.

In addition to these programs specific to the Green store, Acme Fresh Market will introduce other company-wide community initiatives to the Green community, including an Annual Food Drive to benefit a local food pantry, and its signature Community Cash Back program. Through Community Cash Back, Acme Fresh Market contributes 5% of all sales of Acme Fresh Market brand products to registered non-profit organizations. Last year, Acme Fresh Market donated over $185,000 to local non-profit organizations. Acme Fresh Market is currently enrolling non-profit organizations for the 2014-2015 Community Cash Back program – to learn more and enroll, visit www.acmestores.com.

The Fred W. Albrecht Grocery Company operates 16 Acme Fresh Market stores in Summit, Stark, Portage and Cuyahoga counties. The company, founded in 1891, is locally owned and family-operated. It is very proud of its longstanding traditions of innovative food merchandising and leadership in the community. Acme Fresh Markets has 2,200 associates focused on feeding the families of our community for over 120 years.
