At the outset, let’s make this point: Macey’s endorses and supports the idea of having some long term food storage in your own home in case of emergencies, large and small.
In any discussion of food storage, the first question asked is, “Why? Why should I store food?”
One answer . . . a very good one . . . can be found in considering Macey’s point of view as a food retailer. We think it’s about “shelf space,” whether in your home or in our stores.
Why shelf space, you ask?
With shelf space at a premium in your home and considering all the great food items you can get anytime with a short trip to a nearby Macey’s, why have food storage at all? It just takes up room you could use for other things. Right?
Put another way, why do you need to find shelf space in your home for cans and pails of food that are seldom opened when a short trip to your local Macey’s will get you practically anything you want or need?
Then consider this: The same is true of our store shelf space. Even though Macey’s are large stores, there is only so much shelf space available. As a result, that space is carefully and thoughtfully stocked with products that offer our valued customers only the best quality and widest variety at the best price.
We could certainly use shelf space dedicated to food storage in our stores for other things. But because Macey’s considers food storage so important, we make room for a variety of great Augason Farms products.
So it’s about shelf space.
Here’s our thought: If it’s important to us to make room in our stores for Augason Farms products, perhaps you should consider making room in your home for them as well. . . and for the very same reasons.
What might those reasons be?
Well, we don’t need a laundry list. Just think loss of job, financial struggle, natural disaster or manmade disaster. That should cover it.
We think the reasons are obvious: The time may come when you can’t get to a Macey’s . . . or any other store for that matter . . . for a variety of dreadful and nearly unthinkable reasons. So having food on hand at home is a very wise precaution.
Because of our overarching philosophy of offering our customers the very best, we carry the fine food storage products from Augason Farms. We know the great value of having an emergency supply of food on hand in your home, and we know the sterling reputation of Augason Farms for quality, nutrition, excellent taste and wholesomeness in extended-shelf-life products.
So, next time you’re shopping in Macey’s, consider picking up one or two food storage items from Augason Farms. Buy a little each time you shop. It won’t break the budget, and it will improve your home reserve. You’ll gradually build up that food storage you need in case of the unthinkable. And it will certainly give you more peace of mind.
Happy Storing and Happy Shopping!
