Spend $500, get a FREE Pound of Butter

Food town promoI like butter.

Maybe the Azzolina and Scaduto families that run Food Circus-Foodtown bought a marketing program that spits out rewards for products their customers like, but the “NOT COUPONS” I received the last couple of days are not motivating me to fill the freezer by Thursday by purchasing another $350.19 worth of groceries.

The four sticks of free butter if I spend $350.19 by Thursday doesn’t make me feel appreciated either.

That their staff greets with me a smile and some of them know me by name makes me feel appreciated.   The gift cards, free turkeys or hams, at Thanksgiving and Christmas make me feel appreciated.  But I would shop there even if they didn’t do those giveaways.

That Food Circus-Foodtown opened in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, before they had power, so that Bayshore residents could get non-perishable food, really makes me appreciate them.

Lou Scaduto and his team run a fine business.  They missed the mark with this promotion.

    Foodtown always had excellent meat products, especially when on sale – London Broil for $1.99 lb, BallPark Beef Franks for $1.99. The cold cuts in their Deli are also excellent.

    That’s when you find me there – buying the loss leaders but also then buying other needed products.

    Don’t think that “free butter” would entice me to go shopping – so I agree with you Art.

    convenience, a typical great American family business success story- and, great Republican supporters for decades- we sure do miss Joe, Sr., but are glad they are still around and doing well..
