Whether you enjoy it in the morning with your coffee, after lunch as a treat or at midnight when you’re craving something sweet, the donut has come a long way over the years.

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Fundraiser

Adding Tomorrows

June 1- June 20

We’re pleased to host a charity drive for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Utah. With over 30 million American’s battling CF, a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and the digestive system.—we hope to help local children breathe a little easier. All donations made will help Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Utah.

What is Cystic Fibrosis?

In people with CF, a defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick mucus that:

  • Clogs the lungs, leading to life threatening infections
  • Obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down nutrients.

In the 1950’s, few people with CF lived in their 30’s. Now, with the help of modern medicine and research, people with CF are living into their 30’s, 40’s and beyond.

Donate to Adding Tomorrows

Be sure to tell your cashier that you’d like to donate to help local kids with CF live longer, fuller lives.

May 2015

This month’s Employee Spotlight is Beth Christensen, Front End Manager at Macey’s Providence.

Beth is a prime example of a Macey’s Spotlight employee. She truly lives the Macey’s brand and makes shopping at Macey’s a unique and pleasurable experience. Congratulations to Beth Christensen, Macey’s May Spotlight of the month!

Beth Christensen is a charismatic, compassionate and thoughtful person. Beth grew up in Oregon and taught special education for a few years. After having children and being a stay at home mom, she wanted to get back into the workforce. Beth started at Macey’s in the deli, nine years later she is the Front End Manager at Macey’s Providence.

“Beth exemplifies a Macey’s employee. She is great with the team and guests and does a great job executing Macey’s vision. She is great at her job and I truly enjoy working with her,” said Kerry Chin, Store Director of Macey’s Providence.

Beth loves the environment at Macey’s. When she walks in to work, she feels alive. She compared her team and job to being the heartbeat of the store and a vital organ of a body. Beth loves the flexibility that Macey’s gives her; she has the ability to go above and beyond to ensure guest satisfaction.  The most important thing to Beth is guest satisfaction—she wants to ensure guests feel welcome and enjoys talking to people at the store.

Beth’s team is another reason that she enjoys working at Macey’s. The culture at Macey’s Providence is friendly and inviting and she is constantly impressed with the team’s ability to make the day-to-day operations run smoothly.

Beth loves shopping at Macey’s and has many favorite Macey’s products. The two Macey’s products that Beth loves are the gourmet kettle korn and the tortilla chips. These products have become staples in her household.

Beth suggests starting at the deli to make your shopping trip easier,. “If you place your order at the deli first then, your order will be complete by the time you are done shopping. Plus then you have an easy dinner.”

Thank you to Beth for exemplifying the values that Macey’s holds important. If you know Beth, be sure to congratulate her for earning the May Employee Spotlight of the month!
