And donations are coming in quickly!

Thank You's go out to Saranac Area Women's Club, Saranac Community Schools, and a local Girl Scout Pack for bringing in boxes and bags of donations!

We also thank Grand River Rover Rescue for calling in a pledge of travel sized toothpaste.  I will be meeting up with them to pick of the cases later this week!  And this will go great with the toothbrushes and dental floss sticks that we have also received in cases!

Blue Star Mother Shopping Spree

Blue Star Mothers Shopping Spree at Muir Village Market



Well thanks to Phil Cloud and Kurt Scheurer, we have two $50 bills and we just sent 2 Blue Star Mothers out in the store to see what they could buy.  We will be comparing donations soon!


Thanks to Pull-um Automotive for donating $100 to start another shopping spree and then $20 to cover postage!

Results of the first shopping spree!


 
At the check-out!  Shopper 1 had 35 items and was just 4 cents over!  Shopper 2 had 37 items and went back for 1 more to bring their total just shy of $50!

  

Thank YOU Toni, Log Cabin Inn Banquet Center for Shopping Local!


   

Results for Shopping Spree #2

  
Taking a break for running the cash register, we have the results for Cashier #1 who went on a shopping spree!  Cashier #2 is out in the store now.
