Whole Foods Market Anniversary Nov. 2-5

Whole Foods Market on State Road 7 in Wellington is celebrating its fourth anniversary Nov. 2-5, and there will be plenty of samplings, giveaways, prizes and more.

There will be four days of giveaways with four prizes. Every day at 4 p.m. winners will be chosen from a ballot box. Entries will be accepted each day by 3:59 p.m. Prizes will include gift baskets with assorted products, four $25 gift cards and one $100 gift card. Winners do not have to be present to win.

On Friday, Nov. 2, from 6 to 8 p.m., there will be an anniversary wine reception with a team member and customer champagne toast at 6:30 p.m. This activity is free for anyone who stops by. There will be live music, delicious wine, cheese, sushi and cake to enjoy.

On Saturday, Nov. 3, from noon to 3 p.m., there will be a storewide vendor sampling event and Health Starts Here $99 pantry giveaway. Enjoy free samples around the store and enter to win a $99 pantry at the Health Starts Here Information Station next to the Juice Bar.

A Kids Club Corner grand opening and lunch bag giveaway takes place Sunday, Nov. 4 beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing while supplies last. The first 50 kids to come over to the new Kids Club Corner will receive an Organic Valley lunch bag. The Kids Club Corner will be a place for parents to bring their little ones to register for a Kids Club membership card to get a treat. Treats will be offered to Kids Club members and will change monthly. Stop by the customer service desk to join.

Finally, on Monday, Nov. 5, a “team member throw down” will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. with free samples available. Whole Foods Market will end its anniversary celebration with a cookoff between two teams of the store team members. Each team must use a featured ingredient, which will be a surprise. Come watch the teams battle it out for bragging rights that last the whole year and enjoy samples made with the featured ingredient.

“Thank you for growing with us” is the theme this year. Whole Foods Market encourages customers to help decorate its recycled tree display by filling out a leaf at the customer service desk to explain why they like shopping at the store. Pictures of the growing tree will be posted on the store’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/wholefoodsmarketwellington. Details on the anniversary celebration can be found there as well.
