If you pulled up to the No Frill on Valley View drive today, you may have noticed a change. No Frill is no more. Today was the grand re-opening of Family Fare. This is the first Family Fare to open in the city and I partnered with them to check it out and tell you all about the new store, and offer a giveaway! Check out 10 reasons you need to check out Family Fare in Council Bluffs!
10 Reasons to Check out Family Fare in Council Bluffs
1) Build Your Own 6-Pack
That’s right, I’m starting with alcohol and if you have trouble making up your mind, you can build your own 6-Pack for $8.99 at Family Fare! There are all sorts to choose from including beer, flavored drinks, IPA, and more.
2) Build Your Own K-Cup 24 Pack
It’s not just alcohol, it’s coffee too! Stop by the Pick and Sip at Family Fare to choose from a variety of K-Cup flavors to build your own pack of 24 K-Cups. They even have hot cocoa!
Stop by the back of the store and see what the Butcher Shop has ready for the grill. Family Fare offers Certified Tender Ridge Angus in both seasoned and unseasoned varieties, as well as many different cuts.Tender Ridge Angus is high quality tender meat with a certification to prove it, and in order to earn that the meat has to meet the following requirements:
- USDA tenderness audits
- 14-Day minimum aging
- Proper monitoring and labeling
- Shear-force testing (scientific standard to evaluate tenderness)
- Special employee training programs so they can make sure the meat is ready for us to enjoy!
4) Living Well Section
When you walk in to Family Fare there is a fantastic fresh fruits and veggies section. Just beyond is the Living Well Section with over 2000 products that are better and healthier for you.There’s gluten-free, allergen-free organic, vegan, Non-GMO products, and more, as well as health and wellness products. It was nice to see this section so prominent in the store, instead of tucked away hidden in a corner. Keep your eyes out for Free Living Well Magazines that will hit the store in August.
5) Cafe & Deli
Family Fare does have a deli with ready to go foods, deli meats, and more. Plus, there is a little Cafe next to it so you can enjoy lunch at a table instead of in the car.
