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.

Water & Food Guidelines with Augason Farms

HOW MUCH WATER & CALORIES DO YOU NEED TO SURVIVE?

Late winter blizzards remind us that weather only teases the prospect of more temperate times through spring. In fact, wicked storms can creep well into spring and catch you by surprise. That may mean you have to shelter in your home for an extended period or it may mean you’re caught out in unexpected conditions. Transitioning seasons are times of year when you should be ready for temperature highs and lows. Whichever the scenario, it’s important to know how much food and water you need to survive.

There is no one answer to this question because of all the factors that go into survival. For example, if you are in a hot environment, you may dehydrate more quickly than in more temperate zones, whereas if you are in a cold environment, your body may metabolize more slowly, etc. Also important to consider is your fitness status, your height and weight (body mass) and your age.

Humans have been known to survive for as long as 21 days without either food or water, and as long as two months with water but no food. These are frighteningly long durations of time that no family should have to endure without food and water.

Calorie Guidelines 

The rule of thumb to maintain a healthy diet is 2,500 calories per day for a man, and 2,000 calories per day for a woman. There are lots of issues with these sums that go back to the many factors already mentioned. Without overcomplicating things, you may need more calories than that, but those are ballpark averages. It’s generally accepted that consuming less than 1,200 calories per day is unhealthy.

To dive deeper into the number of calories you and your adult family members may need, the “Mifflin-St Jeor Equation” is another tool to consider:

MEN: (9.99 x weight) + (6.25 x height) – (4.92 x age) + 5

WOMEN: (9.99 x weight) + (6.25 x height) – (4.92 x age) – 161

Note that in this equation, weight is in kilograms, height is in centimeters and age is in years. This calculation will inform you how many calories your body consumes when it is at rest. (To convert pounds to kilograms, multiply pounds by .45359. To convert inches to centimeters, multiply inches by 2.54.)

When it comes to building your family’s emergency food supply, always check the calorie counts and the source of those calories. Some manufacturers of emergency food kits tend to boost their calorie counts by including empty calories such as sugary drinks. Take the time to read the labels to help ensure a healthy outcome when faced with an emergency situation.

Water Guidelines

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH)-related emergency preparedness and outbreak response has become one of the most significant and crucial public health issues in recent history. Having clean and safe water in an emergency situation to meet drinking, sanitation, and hygiene needs is essential for every person.

When building your family’s emergency water supply, experts recommend that you plan for a minimum of 1 gallon of water per day for each person and pet. On a daily basis, that provides each person with 2 quarts for drinking and 2 quarts for cooking and personal hygiene. In survival situations it’s important to remember not to skimp on water; drink when you are thirsty.

Experts also recommend that you store enough water for at least three days. As the 2017 disasters have reminded us, it may take several hours if not days for emergency relief services to arrive at your home. Use the Emergency Water Supply Guide to calculate the minimum* amount of water your family will need for emergency durations up to 30 days.

*NOTE:  You’ll want to store more water for hot climates, pregnant or nursing women, and people who are ill.

Macey’s has teamed with Augason Farms to offer emergency food supplies and long term food storage to our valued customers for good reason. They’ve been in the business since 1972 and guarantee their products for great taste and superior quality. Maintaining a supply of Augason Farms products in your home is ideal not only for your emergency food supply but for everyday use as well.

It’s time for spring cleaning!

With warmer weather it’s time to open the windows, let in the fresh air and start your spring cleaning. This time of year our homes need more than vacuuming, sweeping and dusting. Now is a great time to organize closets, dust the blinds and clean the garage.

Here are a few ideas to add to your spring cleaning list:

-Clean light fixtures and replace bulbs

-Wash walls, baseboards, and door knobs

-Empty the coat closet

-Clean stove top and oven

-Wash windows and screens

-Touch up the ceiling fans

Make a realistic check list so you can mark off those assignments as they are finished. Choose one room at a time to arrange, deep clean and organize.

Before you start your spring cleaning projects make sure you have all of the supplies:

-Wood Polish

-Glass Cleaner

-Paper Towels

-Dusting Spray

-Boxes/Trash Bags

-Cloths, Micro fiber or dish towels

All of these items can be found at any of our locations and remember to check the weekly ad for additional savings. Get ready to start tackling those cleaning projects you have been putting off during the cold winter days.
