Raisin Rack's March newsletter
Welcome to March. It's going to be a great month. It's Raisin Rack's 35th anniversary and we're celebrating, starting with an incredible array of line drives on popular supplements and personal care products throughout the month.
The anniversary month won't be limited to sales and specials. We'll have product demonstrations and samples interspersed throughout March. Some of the companies will be local exhibitors. We love to offer these types of events to give our customers a chance to interact with the companies on a more personal level to learn about products and overall health.
You'll also have an opportunity to enter drawings for gift baskets with products geared toward a healthy lifestyle. With those kinds of incentives, you really should visit in March.

A printable label from the scale provides for expedited checkout at the register, making it easier for customers who have tight schedules and try to avoid "fast" foods.
The soups of the day are offered in two sizes with a mix of vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and traditional varieties.
