Thanks to all of you who participated and supported National Bulk Week 2011, there were nearly 750 stores nationwide.
BIG will be awarding $100 to the selected charity of the store showing the greatest support for the week. After reviewing a number of submitted photos, the council determined Richard's Foodporuim of Sarasota Florida as the events strongest supporter. Richard's created additional signage communicating the attributes of buying in bulk, ran sales promotions on all bulk products and set up a sampling station for customers to try new bulk items. A very close second place was Whole Foods - Capitola in Northern California, who also had additional signage and sales promotions.
Thanks for you support; we look forward to seeing your entries next year!
