Our extensive expansion is in the works! Not only will the additional space allow us to meet our shoppers' requests for more food-to-go and deli choices, it allows us to incorporate state-of-the-art energy conservation practices throughout the store. To name just a few: installation of 152 solar panels and a reflective roof membrane to reduce energy usage during the summer heat; We're especially excited by the addition of a green wall on the north side of the building. The wall will be planted with greenery which will increase CO2 absorption and be create a lovely green space. Stay tuned for more details as they are made available!
Working with our 50 year-old building presents predictable challenges. We utilize new developments in conservation on a regular basis, to save money, but also to lessen our carbon footprint. Recent projects include replacement of florescent light bulbs with LED, which add four times the lifespan of the fixtures and create no hazardous material disposal issues; and adding energy efficient refrigerator doors to improve energy usage by 70%.
