Pepper's Newsletter April 28, 2020

Pepper's Newsletter April 28, 2020

Good morning!  Today in 1789 master's mate to Captain William Bligh, Fletcher Christian, led a mutiny on the HMS Bounty about 1300 miles west of Tahiti. Apparently ol' Fletch and some of the crew were a little too enthralled with the good life that they were leaving behind (not to mention Bill's allegedly harsh treatment of them) so they set the captain and those loyal to him adrift in the m iddle of the ocean in a small boat and went back to Tahiti. Most of the mutineers, though, including Fletcher Christian, were either murdered by their fellow crewmates or died prematurely from one thing or another. William Bligh and all of the crew who were cast away survived the 3618 nautical mile journey that they endured before reaching Timor! Seems the grass wasn't as green as Fletcher and his followers had thought.

Thank goodness there was no mutiny when we decided to close the store to shoppers a few weeks ago. But since then a few things have happened: the panic shopping seems to have abated. In general, the frenzy is over for the time being and the vibe is a little more relaxed. The other thing is that we've had some time to rethink our strategy in terms of how to offer our customers and our staff the safest way to shop in-store. With that in mind, we have decided to re-open to the public starting Monday, May 4th. We're going to modify the hours that our staff will be working. You can imagine that having customers, plus employees stocking the shelves, as well as other employees shopping for deliveries and pick-ups would result in too much congestion in our small store to offer effective social distancing. When we have all of the details, you can expect another newsletter (as well as notices on our social media pages) explaining our store hours and any pertinent facts that you'll want to know. So stay tuned for the next chapter in our evolving COVID-19 story...

Every year when the weather starts to warm up we haul the Nestle Frozen Novelty Freezer out of storage and fill it up with a variety of treats that everyone will enjoy. This year is no different and we currently have it outside at the front entrance. So for all of you Concierge Shoppers, ask a staff member what we have available and add one or two to your grocery bag! But you can have a look for yourself once we re-open to the public nect week!

Our lactose free line continues to expand with the addition of Dairyland Lactose Free 10% Half & Half Cream in a 946ml carton! The best part is that it has the same rich, fresh taste of regular cream so if there's a member of your family that's lactose intolerant, you only need to purchase one carton (as opposed to getting lactose free as well as regular).

Ther'e only one thing you'll need to add to the next new item to get something much tastier and that's simply water. That's because Betty Crocker makes it super easy to whip up a batch of super tasty and fluffy Bisquick Buttermilk Biscuits. Just add water to the mix and in 15 minutes you'll be enjoying mouth watering biscuits perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Sweet and spicy go together like Ross and Rachel, Leia and Han or possibly even Justin Long and Drew Barrymore. That's what you get when you take the deliciousness of sweet potatoes and the smoky, yet spicy flavour of chipotle seasoning and combine them as Alexia Chipotle Spicy Sweet Potato Fries. These crispy fries would get Emeril's kiss of approval and don't worry if you forgot the ketchup because these already have enough flavour all on their own.

Perhaps a nice bowl of soup would pair nicely with those fries? How about SoupetcWild About Salmon Creamy Chowder? Made in East Vancouver, these gluten-free soups are all-natural and free of preservatives. Or take your pick from the other flavours of this award-winning line that we have in stock if chowder's not your thing, that is. And remember: eat well and be nice to people!

If you've been quarantined for the last few weeks then you might be looking for a fresh way to invigorate and energize your body and your mind. Showering with St. Ives Citrus & Cherry Blossom Energizing Body Wash is one great way to do it! Made with 100% natural extracts, this dermatologist tested formula contains no parabens or animal-derived ingredients, is cruelty-free and comes in a bottle made of 100% recycled plastic. 

Please continue to practice social distancing, washing your hands and being kind to the people you come across during your day. We are all starting to feel the strain of this pandemic and even a small act of kindness can have a huge impact on someone and go a long way towards brightening someone's day. We hope this newsletter brightened yours a little. So until next week stay safe and take good care.
