Raisin Rack’s April Newsletter

Customer appreciation days

Join us for Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday, April 28, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Canton and Westerville Raisin Rack. It’s our way of saying thanks to our loyal customers for their patronage as Raisin Rack continues to celebrate its 40th anniversary since its founding in 1978.

Raisin Rack Natural Food Market reached a milestone last month with our 40th anniversary. The store was launched in 1978 by Don and Paulette Caster, who still own and operate two locations today.

The Customer Appreciation Day will feature local vendors with their products and additional samples from other popular brands. We’ll also have some giveaways, special savings and more.

Some of the vendors expected to attend in Canton are Rust Belt Pepper Co., Homemade Hot Sauce, Nordic Naturals, Ancient Nutrition – Bone Broth, Carlson, Amazing. Grass, Garden of Life, Berardi’s Coffee, Eban’s Bakery, Amir, Hartzler, Nature’s Path and Cadia. Westerville will include Barleans, Host Defense, Emerald Health Bioceuticals, Nature’s Path, Eban, Garden of Life and Shema.

We hope to see you at Customer Appreciation Days. Tell your friends and neighbors to join us. For more information, contact the Canton store at 330-966-1515 or the Westerville store at 614-882-5886.

Free presentations during Customer Appreciation month

From Raisin Rack’s inception, the owners had a vision to not only provide quality products but to educate shoppers about their health. Through the years, our stores have presented hundreds of lectures from numerous experts such as doctors, naturopaths, nutritionists, herbalists, practitioners and more. All of those events have been free.

This month during Customer Appreciation and Earth Month, the stores continue that tradition with more free presentations.

Tuesday, April 17, 7 p.m. — Skaates Family Chiropractic’s Dr. Nicole Lefton will address topics including why chiropractic adjusts provide relief for back pain, how chiropractic adjustments improve function and overall wellness, the fundamentals of the spine and why posture matters.

Tuesday, April 24, 6:30 p.m. — Sancta Familia Center of Integrative Medicine’s Dr. Allen T. Lewis, MD, presents Warm Weather Wellness for the Whole Family: Spring Cleaning and Sensible Safety for Fun in the Sun. Learn about fundamentals of wellness, health benefits of the outdoors, natural allergy control and why it matters, toxin avoidance during warm weather seasons, ticks and Lyme disease — protection and awareness.

Wednesday, April 25, 6:30 p.m. — Raw skincare founder Lindsey Moeller will discuss things to look for when shopping for skincare.

Register for the free lectures at the Westerville store or sign up by calling the 614-882-5886. Walk-ins are welcome.

We hope you’ll take advantage of these free sessions to increase your health knowledge.
