It was not your average Wednesday in Huntersville, NC. This Wednesday was the grand opening of Earth Fare’s Huntersville store! Customers and Team Members alike enjoyed the fun craziness that was non-stop from the minute the doors opened at 8am.
Working on the front end, I got to see all the smiles of our customers as they completed their first visit to my store. As we talked, I was struck by how many of them told me, “I am so glad you are here!” Well, this works both ways. We are glad to be here!
Despite temperatures hitting 100, the parking lot filled so fast that we brought in a complimentary valet service… so it was no surprise that I had a lot of people commenting to me about how busy the store was. My response was always, “If you are going to throw a party, you want to throw the biggest one you possibly can.” And on Wednesday, we did just that!
Huntersville, this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I am glad to be part of it. I am honored to share my experience with you all. And now I am delighted to say…
Welcome Home Huntersville!
