VWS Gift Card Program Update

Gift Cards

Changing shopping habits is tricky business, but there are some great options out there. Last week I featured the fabulous Sprout Organic Market. This week, some features of Save-On Foods.

With so many Save-On stores all across the lower mainland you’ll always find one nearby to use your gift cards. I’ve only shopped at Lynn Valley and Park & Tilford locations but hopefully these recommendations apply to all. If you pop down to the Park & Tilford location you’ll find it is a great one-stop shopping area. It is across the street from the Return-It-Depot where you can drop your recyclables to raise money for the school, there’s also Save-On, a liquor store, pet store, cinema, gift shops, coffee shops, clothing, MEC and more. I have always found the service at Park & Tilford Save-On to be exceptional, with staff not only asking if my kids would like a piece of fruit or a slice of ham whilst shopping but always being on the lookout for anyone that needs assistance. When I suggested a particular product be available it appeared on the shelves within the month. They have a great selection of organic and local items and a pretty good selection of organic produce (depending on which location you’re at). They often have sales deals and a great reward points program.

SPUD Fundraising

SPUD continues to be a fantastic company to partner with and reached out to me as they want you to know that:

“we are now into the time of year when there is almost nothing organic available in BC. The local box is still our best compromise between local and variety, but it does include products from other parts of the Pacific Northwest. Also, it becomes more expensive for us to obtain high-quality local organic produce at this time of year, so the selection in the box is slightly smaller this week (2 less pears, 2 less apples)”.

Please also note that there will be NO SPUD DELIVERIES during the Spring Break. Last orders will be delivered Tuesday March 15, with deliveries of delicious produce resuming Tuesday April 5.

Important Dates

  • Sunday 13 March – Next order cut-off for SPUD. Delivery on Tuesday 16 March.
  • Monday 14 March – Last date to order gift cards for April. You can also pick-up your March cards if you didn’t this week.
