Earth Fare Giveaway!

I had a very interesting email yesterday.  Earth Fare, a healthy supermarket, known for selling "foods that are as close to the ground as it gets" is opening a store Chattanooga in December.  Their "Social Media Manager" found my simple little blog and contacted me, and Earth Fare wants to give away a $50 gift card to one of you lucky readers!

Earth Fare stores are located in Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas, so unfortunately, unless you live or visit in these areas, you might not be interested, but maybe you know someone there who would be happy to get a gift card for Christmas!  So - here's the post they want you to read:

Budgets always get really tight around the holidays. We all know that. And, Earth Fare, the healthy supermarket, seems to know that too. Have you been to their stores? If so, you would know that they are always trying to make healthy eating affordable, easy and delicious! Seriously - have you tried their homemade, all-natural chocolate chip cookies - if not, it is .99 cents of deliciousness! Well, in celebration of the opening of their new Chattanooga store on December 9th, Earth Fare gave me a $50.00 gift card to give away! Yeah, very cool. They just said, hey Janet - give this away for us.

So, now, we want you to tell us why you deserve or just plain want this gift card. We've all got stories. You may be hosting your family's holiday dinner on an extremely tight budget. You may have lost your job recently and just need some extra help to make it through this already tough season. You may be a cookie lover or organic food nut! Or, perhaps for whatever reason, you've never tried a healthy food store and just want to see what it's like! Give us your best reason, and we'll consider it for the prize.

The best story gets the card. So, ready, set, and get writing. Post your reason in the comments below today! You only have until Friday, December 4 to get your entry in. And, we're waiting..

Well, Janet -- let's see . . . hmmm . . . I live far away so if I were to win the gift card, I'd have to send it to my (second) favorite red girl's mom.

I don't have any financially compelling reasons why I need the card, but I'm thrilled to see a healthy store moving in to the area! It's not always easy to find healthy organic options for my family in this area. Of course, I wish it was a bit CLOSER, like Huntsville :P, but maybe next time. :) I hope they do well!

What a cool idea - I would love to try the store out. We live in a rural area, so stores like this don't exist. Chattanooga is only an hour away and my best friend, Janet. lives there! Pick me - Pick me!!!!

I have never been to an Earth Fare store and would love to try it.
I don't have a financial reason to justify getting the card.
However, I am cooking Christmas dinner for my husband's family.
It would be easy to swing by there on my way home from work.

I would love to sample the items that the store has to offer.

I am so exited about the earth fare store opening. I love organics and was planning to try it out anyway, but a gift card would make it that much better!
