Winter Park Market relocates to Grand Park
July 16, 2009
Grand Park is pleased to announce the General Store in The Village at Grand Park will house a new neighborhood market, as well as a new deli/coffee shop. The owners of the Winter Park Market, Stephanie Tuttle and Tracey Chambers, have expanded their operations to bring these two new ventures to the Village. As the premier health food store in the Fraser Valley, the new store will incorporate the best of both worlds by providing the same quality products with the added convenience of a full-service environment.
The new Winter Park Market is expected to open soon with a clean, modern interior in fresh shades of green and yellow. Alder wood cabinetry with maple bead board interiors will add a touch of mountain decor to the space. In addition to organic and natural items, the store will offer convenience goods and operate the fuel station. Patrons of the Winter Park Market will continue to find all of their health food store needs. The Market currently carries a wide variety of gluten free, organic, vegan and vegetarian groceries, in addition to vitamins and bulk herbs.
“The new store is three times the size of our current location allowing us to expand our product base significantly. We will be able to offer more organic and natural fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, gourmet and specialty items, as well as a selection of traditional snacks and drinks,” said Tuttle.
The General Store will also house a deli/coffee shop. Operated by the Winter Park Market, the menu will offer homemade breads, pastries, soups, salads, sandwiches, pizza, coffee, tea, ice cream, and of course, their famous smoothies.
Indoor seating in the deli will be available, as well as seasonal outdoor seating on the covered patio and along the meadow. The new market and deli will be open seven days a week.
In keeping with the eco-friendly nature of the store, the fuel station will offer E-85 and Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines provided by Shell. “Gas brings people in, and people want healthier convenient foods. The larger, more visible store will allow us to grow and meet the health demands of our community,” said Chambers.
E85 is a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. Ethanol is a clean burning fuel typically produced from corn, although other grains like wheat or barley can also be used. Besides its advantages as a renewable and domestically available biofuel, ethanol combustion in engines reduces harmful emissions and carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas.
Shell recently launched a new gasoline containing a unique, patented cleaning system designed to seek and destroy engine gunk in all three grades of gasoline. The Nitrogen Enriched cleaning system acts as a barrier to help clean and protect critical engine parts to help vehicles maintain peak performance.
Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines are certified to meet the Top Tier Detergent Gasoline Standard; a voluntary standard designated by automakers (Audi, BMW, GM, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen) to try to raise the bar on fuel quality beyond the minimum government criteria. These car manufacturers agree that a cleaner engine results in better fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, and overall optimal vehicle performance.
