Dick’s Market Joins the No Hunger Zone

Dick’s Market in Bountiful is working to ensure children in South Davis County don’t go hungry on the weekends. The locally-owned grocery store partnered with Bountiful Food Pantry to collect supplies and assemble more than 2,000 Pantry Packs for the food pantry’s school program. The store will host an assembly part on Saturday September 22 from 1-4 p.m. in the parking lot. Guests are invited to participate by signing up for a volunteer time slot at the service desk.

“We are grateful to our generous guests who have made this project possible. They have donated a variety of kid friendly foods for the packs including fruit snacks, crackers, oatmeal, and macaroni and cheese cups,” said Blaine Butterworth, store director at Dick’s Market in Bountiful. “We’re looking forward to a great event on Saturday and would love to see our guests there.”

The assembled packs and any additional donated product will be delivered to Bountiful Food Pantry early next week.

Ten Tailgating Tips

Here are ten tailgating tips to make you a tailgating champ. Then check out our awesome sales on our weekly ad to save big for your tailgates.

  1. Foods that can be eaten with your hands work best for tailgating. Think chicken, tacos, hamburgers, pulled-pork sandwiches, brats, kebabs, burritos . . . the list could go on and on. Regardless, simple, delicious foods allow you to focus on fun and be less concerned with complicated recipes.
  2. If you tailgate often, develop a checklist and laminate it. (Lamination will protect it from rain, snow, beverages and tears of opposing fans.) Or, use one of many checklist apps to ensure you never forget a much-needed item during your parking-lot party.
  3. You’re about to sit in a potentially sun-filled stadium packed with people on a chair that may or may not be comfortable. Sit in style pre game by packing portable seating and some shade. Camp chairs come in all shapes and sizes and most fit easily in your trunk. Canopies are easy to set up and simple to store. Plus, you can almost certainly find them in your team colors.
  4. Perform pre-game prep. Chop, slice, and assemble whatever you can beforehand. Store all of your food in waterproof, plastic bags or disposable plasticware. Both allow for maximum storage usage in your coolers. The more you pack in disposable containers, the less you’ll have to lug home or clean. When possible, use several smaller containers, rather than one large one, so you can take only as much as you need out of the cooler and keep the rest cold.
  5. Make it portable. Assemble materials in containers that are easy to carry. Smart tailgaters gather items in containers like toolboxes or storage bins. Condiments and utensils can be stored in empty six-pack containers. Coolers are important. Use at least two—one for food, one for drinks.
  6. Food safety is important, especially outside. Have a cold food cooler and a drink cooler. Drink coolers will be opened more frequently, so separate coolers allow food to stay cold longer.
  7. Instead of using bags of ice, use frozen water bottles. The bottles will make less mess in the cooler and you’ll have perfectly chilled drinks as they thaw.
  8. Keep it hot. When food needs to be kept warm, turn a cooler into a hotbox. Warm bricks in the oven, wrap them in foil and place in a cooler lined with wet towels. This will keep your food warm for 2-3 hours.
  9. Keep it short. Don’t let food sit out for more than two hours. If it’s really hot outside, (over 90 degrees) don’t let food sit out for more than an hour.
  10. Don’t hesitate to rely on your teammates. Our store can be an important part of your tailgating tribe. With meat and cheese trays, fresh-cut fruit and veggies, deliciously portable desserts and more, we have all the solutions you need to celebrate another successful season.

Skip at Valley Market

Skip the lines with the SKIP checkout app! Download it today at the Play Store or the App Store.

Just walk out
When you’re done with your shopping, you don’t have to wait for a clerk to tell you you can leave. Just finalize payment in the app and be on your way.

Surprise! No surprises. 
Skip tells you your total while you shop. So you’ll never have to ballpark it in your head and then dump a few items when you get to checkout and find out you’re $100 over budget. Not that you’ve ever done that.

No more clipping
With Skip, coupons are built-in and pop up whenever you can use them. So leave your baseball card binder at home where it belongs: with the baseball cards you totally still have even though they’re completely obsolete

Wander no more
Ever wander around the store for an hour looking for pickling spice because your significant other can’t cook dinner without it and you’re working on being more helpful? Yeah, neither have we. But we thought it might be hypothetically easier to just type it into an app than to ruin dinner and shake an already hypothetically strained hypothetical relationship.

Macey’s Employee Crowned Utah’s Best Bagger

Salt Lake City, UT (August 23, 2018) If you’re searching for the best bagger in Utah, look no farther than the Macey’s in Sandy. Julina Call, a bagger from Macey’s, was named Utah’s Best Bagger yesterday at the 2018 competition held at Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah. The competition was part of Utah Food Industry Association conference. She will represent Utah at the National competition next February during the National Grocer’s Association annual conference in San Diego.

“It’s awesome to have another state champion from our Sandy store, and hopefully a third national champion” said John Harris, the district manager at Macey’s Sandy. “We’re always excited for the competition. We’re proud of Julina and all of our team members.”

Macey’s wasn’t the only Associated Retail Operations store to take top honors at the event. Rachell Beagley from Lin’s in Hurricane, Utah, took the second place spot. Third place went to Jaxon Astill from the Dan’s on Foothill in Salt Lake City.

During the competition baggers from multiple grocery stores across the state went head to head in sets of three. Each bagger was given the same items to bag using reusable bags. They were judged not only on speed, but the weight of each bag and how items were placed.

Julina has worked at Macey’s for three and a half years and enjoys helping guests as their last point of contact before they leave the store. She is currently a nursing student.

Photos from the event are available upon request.

About Macey’s

In 1947, Walt Macey and Dale A. Jones started the “Save-A-Nickle-Market” in Rose Park, Utah. Macey’s grew from a small store into a multi-store chain by providing personalized old-fashioned service. Known for their famous doughnuts and Kong Kones®, Macey’s grocery stores offer an in-store bakery, delicatessen, full-service grocery, meat, produce and non-foods department and above all, friendly service. Macey’s currently operates 13 stores from Logan to Spanish Fork. For more information visit maceys.com.

Happy Shopping Spotlight: Ceilla

If you’ve recently stopped by the Macey’s in Logan for a Kong Kone or salad you’ve probably seen Ceilla, our service deli manager. Over the last 15 years, Cellia has worked in the butcher block, meat-deli department, and currently manages the service deli. Her dedication to great service has made her a guest favorite.

“I love helping customers and getting to know them,” Ceilla said when asked about her favorite part of working at Macey’s.

Celila is instrumental in creating the Happy Shopping experience Macey’s is known for. She goes above and beyond simply getting guests the deli items they need and makes an effort to get to know them. This has resulted in many lasting friendships with shoppers and her team. One of Ceilla’s favorite memories is when she and the other managers traveled to San Francisco to visit the Columbus meat factory to learn about the products. The trip helped the team bond and work better together.

“Ceilla is a great team member with a passion for our store and the service deli,” said Jordan Resch, the Logan store director. “She has a great selling mentality and cares a great deal for her team.”

Her passion for people goes beyond her customers and coworkers. Ceilla has six beautiful grandchildren. Each week on her day off she baby-sits two of them. She loves the time she gets to spend with her family.

Ask Ceilla what her favorite Macey’s product is and she’ll tell you Kong Kones. “It’s the best ice cream in town!” She also recommends trying the fresh-made doughnuts and smoked ribs.

We’re proud to have Ceilla on the Macey’s team in Logan. Next time you’re in the store, make sure to stop by and say hello.

 Macey’s Logan

The entire team at Macey’s in Logan embodies Happy Shopping in their commitment to helping each other out whenever and wherever someone needs help. The desire to help goes beyond the store walls. Macey’s is an active part of the Logan community and happily supports many local schools, charities, and participates in multiple community events.
