Looking for an easy, affordable, meaningful gift to give this holiday season? Acme Fresh Market gift cards are your perfect solution because “Everybody Loves an Acme Fresh Market Gift Card!”

The perfect solution for the perfect gift

One of the biggest challenges of the holiday season can be deciding on the perfect gift. There are so many people you want to remember at this time of year, and you don’t want to leave anyone out! It can be especially challenging to give a gift to someone you don’t know very well, such as your child’s teacher, the mail carrier, the newspaper carrier, the babysitter, your co-workers – the list goes on.

A simple, yet meaningful, way to give

This year, simplify your life by giving Acme Fresh Market gift cards. When you give an Acme gift card, you give something much more precious than groceries.

You give a memory . . .

Just picture your newspaper carrier sitting down with his family for the delicious holiday meal your gift card helped him purchase. Picture his wife with a beaming smile as she looks across the table at her family. Because of your gift, the family may have splurged on a sumptuous Certified Angus Beef prime rib roast or ventured out of the everyday to try king crab legs – or maybe even lobster! Acme Fresh Market offers the highest quality, freshest meat and seafood available – quality you can trust. Your gift of an Acme Fresh Market gift card is the gift of a memorable holiday meal.

You give a gift of relaxation . . .

Now let’s picture your child’s teacher. She is constantly on the go, working hard to give your child an excellent education. After receiving your gift of an Acme Fresh Market gift card, she heads to her locally owned and operated Acme Fresh Market, where she probably runs into many of her neighbors and may even see some of her students working. Normally, she wouldn’t purchase a premium bottle of wine, but because of your gift of an Acme Fresh Market gift card, she decides to treat herself to the highest quality bottle of wine. Acme’s knowledgeable and friendly wine specialist helps her pick the perfect bottle from Acme’s unparalleled selection of wines. In this instance, your Acme Fresh Market gift card purchased the gift of relaxation.

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.
