On Friday, July 31st, Hawthorne Fred Meyer celebrated the Grand Re-opening of their newly remodeled store. The new “Green Living” store is the first of its kind in the Fred Meyer family (owned by Kroger) and is designed to be an Earth-friendly grocery experience. The store is certified under the US Green Building Council’s LEED program. New store features include an expanded Nutrition Center (where our products are found), a fresh sushi bar, gourmet cheeses and desserts, an expanded deli and even an electric car charging station!

Bob was asked to come out and celebrate the Grand Opening. With Jan Chernus and Jessica Olson (both from our Western sales team) in tow, Bob made a grand spectacle by handing out samples of our Gluten Free Brownie Mix (which was a big hit) and taking photos with customers. The event had a great turnout and Bob was the star of the show. People were continually amazed that he is indeed a real person and right in their own back yard.

For those of you in the Portland area, there are still Grand Opening events going on through the end of next week. Visit for a schedule of events.

A wonderful website. I want to purchase a spurtle or two. But,
I cannnot readily see a field in which to place an order.
Further, I wish you could translate into English the instructions in a language I do not know

You can purchase spurtles directly from the manufacturer, a local artist, on Etsy:
