Fitchburg’s Resource Conservation Commission has teamed up with Hy-Vee Fitchburg, 2920 Fitchrona Rd., to reward shoppers who bring reusable bags when they go grocery shopping on Saturday, August 26 from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. During this BYOB (bring your own bag) event, customers entering the store with reusable bags will receive a $5 gift card for Hy-Vee’s Market Grill.
Don’t worry if you don’t already have a reusable shopping bag! Hy-Vee will be selling bags for $1 per bag with a one-cent fuel saver included for each bag purchase. In addition, customers who purchase at least five reusable bags will receive a coupon for $5 off a $50 or more grocery purchase (some restrictions apply).
Hy-Vee has also partnered with more than 10 local vendors from Madison and the surrounding towns to offer samples of their products from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Hy-Vee will also showcase its “One-Step Program,” a sustainability program that gives back to the community.
