Earth Fare Cumming GA Opens December 9th

{This giveaway is now closed. A winner was chosen on Monday, December 14, 2015 by random.org. Congrats Meriam D for winning a $25 gift card to Earth Fare!}

Earth Fare Cumming GA Opens December 9th

This morning I got to spend about an hour on a pre-opening tour of the Earth Fare Cumming GA location. It was a great time! The store is really amazing. I thought I would highlight a few things that you can get excited about.

Earth Fare Quality Standards

  • Quality Standards: I loved the way they explained it to me today – “we read the labels so you don’t have to.” All of the products they carry must meet their quality standards.
  • Savings: They have weekly specials that are great as well as monthly promotions. Then on top of that, they offer a reward system through Tomato Bank. You can sign up for a free account here.
  • Samples: Earth Fare will let you try anything at their counters (deli, produce, olive bar, deli, etc.). I love that because you want to make sure you will like it before you buy it. Also, they have excellent customer service. Everyone was very knowledgeable and friendly!
  • Options: Personally, my favorite thing I learned today about Earth Fare Cumming GA is that they have so many options for anyone who is vegan, gluten free, paleo, dairy free, or wants organic and non-GMO. I’m gluten free and I have to go to several stores every few weeks to get certain items like bread, pasta, crackers, etc. Earth Fare had a great selection of a variety of products.

I can hardly wait to shop at Earth Fare Cumming GA! Here are a few pictures from my tour today:

They will be having a Grand Opening event tomorrow. Below are all the details:

Grand Opening Event – December 9th
Where: Earth Fare at The Collection at Forsyth – 3140 Ronald Reagan Boulevard Cumming, GA

When: Ribbon cutting will take place at 6:45 a.m. on Wednesday, December 9, and doors will open at 7 a.m. Specials, giveaways, and entertainment will continue through the weekend. The first 100 people in line will receive a mystery gift card with a value of anywhere from $5 to $500!

I’ve got a $25 Earth Fare gift card to give away to a lucky winner. You can follow the instructions below from Rafflecopter to enter. Entries will be taken until December 13th at midnight. The winner will be announced on December 14th. Good luck!

Introducing The New Owner of Cumming Local

Meet the Walkup family!

My name is Rachael Walkup. And I’m so excited to be the new owner of Cumming Local. Personally, I have loved this online resource since it was first launched on November 18, 2010. I have used Cumming Local to find family friendly things to do, places to go, and businesses to support here in Forsyth County. And from 2013-2014, I was a contributing writer for the blog. As you can see, I have always been a big believer in the website 🙂

Ok I’m sure you want to know about me and my family. I have lived in Forsyth County since 2000. My husband and I built our first home here in 2006. Greg, my husband, has been a teacher in Forsyth County for 10 years. He has taught at Vickery Creek Elementary, Kelly Mill Elementary, and is currently a Forsyth Central Bulldog. Together we have a 6 year old boy, Finn and a 3 year old girl, Selah. Finn is in kindergarten at Sawnee Elementary and Selah is in a 3k class at First Baptist Cumming.

We love living in Forsyth County for so many reasons. We love the parks, the schools, the country feel, and the city feel. We love that you can basically get anywhere you need to go in 15 minutes or so. But ultimately it’s the people and relationships that we have built here that we love most. I have to say that we fell into a deeper love with Forsyth in 2013 when we lost our home and belongings to a house fire. It was amazing to see how the community rallied around us and just truly loved on us. We will always be grateful for that.

So that’s my family and this wonderful community. But let me tell you about me. I actually grew up in Marietta, GA. I am a Sprayberry High School graduate. And I majored in Business Entrepreneurship at Reinhardt University in Waleska, GA. My professional background has included sales, advertising, product development, and social media marketing.

TheWalkupFamily

Today marks the FIVE year anniversary of the start of Cumming Local. So to celebrate, we have a giveaway for you!

A Giveaway from Costa Vida Cumming, GA

My family’s favorite Mexican restaurant in Cumming, GA is hands down Costa Vida. I have been gluten free for the last year and they have a wonderful selection of gluten free items. Everything there is so delicious! To celebrate my new business and the FIVE year anniversary – I’m giving away at $25 gift certificate to Costa Vida. Here’s how you can win:

Cumming Local Birthday

Birthday Giveaways

It was November 18, 2010 – the day www.CummingLocal.com went live!  Some of you have been with us since the very beginning.  Others have found us only this past month.  And of course many of you in between.

In three years we have published over 1400 articles, shared over 100 giveaways, hosted over 20 GNO and Family Events … and along the way have had a LOT of fun!

We’ve enjoyed chatting with you on Facebook and Twitter and getting to know you in person.  It’s been a pleasure and it continues to be a journey that I have many people to thank for like – Carrie for keeping our Calendar so up to date and taking that one huge task off my mind each week.  And Rachael for bringing fresh content, new ideas, and great stories.

But it wouldn’t be any fun at all if we didn’t have people to read what we share – so thank YOU!!

And we wouldn’t have last this long without some incredible sponsors along the way.  Thank you for trusting your business and your message with us – even when a hyperlocal website like this is still a little “different”.  Thank you for caring about our readers enough to sponsor events, offer giveaways and discounts!  We appreciate YOU!!

And just like any other birthday … here’s to many more!!

It wouldn’t be a Birthday without some GIVEAWAYS:
