As the customer relations manager and scanning coordinator at our Margaretville store, Crystal is the go-to employee for all things client-facing, and she does an excellent job fielding questions, comments, and concerns from our shoppers. When she gets to work every morning, Crystal’s first priority is responding to customers who have left us messages or reviews. She either calls or emails every customer and asks what we can do to improve their experience, whether it’s ordering a new product or setting them up with a Club Card. Once that’s done, Crystal has plenty of other tasks to keep her busy. “I put in Club Cards for new customers so that they can use our Greenpoints system and progress with our rewards program, but mainly, I’m just making sure that everybody is happy, that all of our employees are happy, and that everybody is performing the best that they can,” she says. Crystal has been with us for six years now, and she’s spent all of them at the Margaretville store. Putting in that time has given her a unique perspective on her team and our many regular customers. “I definitely like all the interaction between the customers and employees and seeing how everybody has grown over the time that I've been here,” she says. “I’m here 5–6 days a week, so I’m always running around talking to everybody and definitely have relationships with customers. We’re quite a small town, so everybody is really close here. We’re very community- MEET CRYSTAL COLON! She’s Always Ready to Help

Break out your hosting skills this Halloween and create fun food to please all the ghosts and goblins at your party. We’ve got all the supplies you need to make some of our favorite spooky suggestions. Appetizers Start off with a scream! Deviled egg eyeballs are a great choice: Just top your filling with a slice of green olive for the iris, and drizzle some red Sriracha sauce on the white of the egg to give it a bloodshot effect. You can get creepy and crawly with spider snacks by rolling some mini cheese balls, popping four pretzel sticks into each side for the legs, and slicing some olives for the eyes. Or, create mummy jalapeño poppers by wrapping them in thin strips of puff pastry before baking and complete the look with two peas for the eyes. Entrees Pizza is always a people-pleaser. Coat the base with blood-red sauce, then get spooky with your toppings. You can sprinkle your cheese into the shape of a web and cut little spiders out of black olives and place them strategically. Slice some ham into the shapes of fingers and cut little triangles out of tomatoes or red peppers to place on the ends of the ham fingers. Your guests won’t know what to do with a witch’s hand creeping toward them! The terrifying toppings are endless, and this month, Foodtown has some great coupons to get you started on your very own pizzas. Desserts You won’t get these sweet treats by ringing doorbells. Try dipping strawberries in white chocolate, then place just three chocolate sprinkles to get the eyes and mouth of your howling ghost. You can also take your candied apples a step further by putting holes in the apple and hanging gummy worms out of them. Get creative with cupcake and cookie decorating; with the right frosting and candy garnishes, you can munch on Frankenstein’s monster, vampires, witches, and werewolves. As always, if you’d rather worry about other elements of your party like decorations and entertainment, then let Foodtown take care of your food. Give us a call or visit our store to hear about some of our fantastic catering options. FOOD FOR FUN Spooky Food Ideas to Take Your Halloween Party to the Next Level

based. We always try to help with whatever functions are going on to benefit the people of the community.”

If she could recommend one of our programs to customers, Crystal says she’d choose the Greenpoints system.

“You can redeem your points for a variety of things, like Visa gift cards, gas cards, and specific gift cards for stores you like to shop in. The program is really good if you’re looking to give somebody a gift or get something you can’t get here,” she says.

When she’s not at work, you might find Crystal at home, cooking pizza or chicken Parmesan (her specialties) or snacking on Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (her favorite food).

Want free groceries? Simply use your Club Card to earn points. Then, grab the Free Items sheet at the register and redeem your points for free groceries. It's that simple. FREE GROCERIES — REALLY!

*Available at the store location on the back of this newsletter.

TRY ONLINE SHOPPING Get All Your Groceries From the Comfort of Home

Imagine doing all your grocery shopping without ever having to leave the couch. Seems too good to be true, right? Well, think again! At Foodtown.com, we offer full shopping services for everything in our store, even sales items. Whether you’re on the go or just too comfy at home to plan a grocery shopping trip, our website makes it quick and easy for you to get everything you need. The process is simple: Head to our website, log in to your account, and start shopping. When your online grocery list is complete, your personal shoppers walk our aisles with your list in hand and seek out everything you need. If an item is out of stock or may not be the freshest option at the time, they’ll reach out to

you directly via your preferred method of contact to find out what you’d like instead. Our shoppers put as much time and care into selecting your items as you would if you were the one shopping. When you place an order, you can select a quick pickup of your items at the store, or you can schedule a time for at-home delivery if your specific location offers it. Either way, our team will have all your items bagged and waiting for you whenever you’re ready for them. An amazing feature our online store automatically integrates into your shopping experience is a “learning” process. The more often you shop online, the better the system will get to know

you and “remember” what items you most frequently purchase. This feature allows you to shop solely from a list of items you’ve purchased before, cutting down on your grocery shopping time even further. Frequent online shopper Noah K. says, “It takes less than 15 minutes for us to do all our shopping every week. This has been a tremendous time saver.” Even though we love having you in our store, you can now spend less time wandering the aisles and more time with your friends and family or checking other errands off your to-do list. So head to Foodtown.com today and give online shopping a try. But be warned: You may never want to shop any other way again.

CAKE DECORATING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Special events like birthdays are meant to be celebrated, and what better way to do that than with a delicious cake baked in-store? We can think of one: Have it personalized! Not only do we offer quality cakes at an affordable price, but you can also count on us to make your special day even more extravagant by decorating your cake just the way you want it. No matter the occasion, just give your local store a call to pick a cake from our wide variety. We have classic favorites like coconut and carrot cake, or you can get even more decadent with cookies and cream or German chocolate. Once you’ve decided (we know, it’s tough), just let us know how you’d like the cake customized, and we’ll make it happen.

With Deliciously Spooky Toppings HALLOWEEN PIZZAS

Ingredients • 1 1/2 cups warm water • 3 3/4 cups flour • 2 1/4 tsp instant dry yeast • 2 tsp salt • 1 tsp sugar • 2 tbsp olive oil • Tomato sauce • Mozzarella cheese • Your favorite toppings Directions

1. Mix water, flour, yeast, salt, sugar, and olive oil with electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute, then knead by hand until dough is slightly sticky. Let dough rise for at least 1 1/2 hours. 2. Flatten dough and brush with olive oil. Top with sauce, cheese, and toppings. Make your pizza Halloween-ready by spreading the cheese in the shape of a spider web or a skeleton. Make it “bloody” with extra tomato sauce. Cut toppings like black olives to look like spiders or ham slices and tomatoes to look like creepy fingers. 3. Place in oven at 475 F for 10–15 minutes or until crust is browned.

Whether it’s for a birthday, holiday, or anniversary, we want to make your day special with a delicious cake that’s beautifully decorated. So, give us a call and place your order today.
