Store Tours

Looking for an activity for your son’s Cub Scout pack? Is your daughter’s Girl Scout troop interested in how a grocery store works? At “your community market” we’re happy to give community youth groups a tour of our store. Our staff will take kids behind the scenes and give children hands- on activities they’re sure to enjoy. Don’t worry we show them multiple departments in the store, so next time you shop with us, it might not be the snack aisle your child heads straight for, but the produce department, that they learned so much about on their tour.

Please be sure to contact the store at least 1-2 weeks in advance to arrange a time and so that we can plan age appropriate activities.
