I Found My Fortune at Nugget!

I Found My Fortune at Nugget!

Reading my shout outs about my favorite grocer is nothing new and here, again, is one more reason why.  Nugget offers their customers a shopping comparison survey, which is rather daunting and perhaps not for folks who are either in a big fat hurry or really don't know much about the full food shopping experience, but worth the effort for those of us who enjoy everything food related.  As a reward for your hard work, not to mention the grand incentive in the first place, they throw your name in a drawing for a chance to win a $1000 gift card, a food lover's fortune. They asked, I answered!

Macy's Bakery Cafe Cobblestone Turkey Panini

Macy's Bakery Cafe Cobblestone Turkey Panini

I discovered this unique combo and shot it to the top of my new found food list and loved it so much,  I now care to share.  Here's how the menu reads; Smoked Turkey Breast, Smoked Bacon, Monterey Jack, Cranberry Lemon (zest) Mayonnaise on...wait for it...Cinnamon Cobblestone Bread...grilled!  As if that weren't enough, they serve it with ice cold crunchy baby carrot stick. It's a 10 for $8.95!

A+ Customer Service At Macy's Downtown Sacramento

A+ Customer Service At Macy's Downtown Sacramento

Sacramento -- As a woman who loves to shop, I often experience less than enthusiastic sales people -- especially during a holiday sale! That's why the effort by an executive at Macy's in downtown Sacramento deserves my thanks for going the extra mile to help me during the recent Presidents' Day Sale. When an advertised toaster oven resulted in a sell-out, Macy's executive "Rob" promised to contact other Macy store locations to, hopefully, find this toaster oven at a generously-discounted price. I told Rob my old toaster oven (a wedding gift in 1974) is "sparking" while in use. Clearly, I need a new toaster oven before my garlic bread turns into a camp fire. Even though Rob promised to find me the advertised toaster oven, I assumed that once I'm out of sight that I'd also be out of Rob's mind. Two days later, Rob called saying he located the out-of-stock toaster oven! Amazingly, Rob wants me to be a happy Macy's shopper. He succeeded.
