On my days off I feel like all I do is run, run, run! Although I do try and fit time in for a run on the treadmill, that’s not the running I am referring to. It’s the running from one place to another trying to complete as many tasks on my never ending “To Do” I can before my little ones get home from school. I am sure many of you can relate. Since time is not available for sale on EBAY, yetJ, I thought I would share with all of you one of my time saving tips.
To allow more time for fun things on my day off, I am trying to plan my errands to get the most out of each stop. One stop that I found I could check multiple tasks off my list week in and week out is when doing our grocery shopping at one of our Skogen’s Festival Foods locations.
When going to the grocery store it’s obvious that I am going to be able to check “groceries” off my “to do” list but did you know that you can also take care of the following during this same visit?
- Need a gift for someone?
o Festival Gift Cards are a great gift ideas – everyone needs to eatJ Gift cards are available at all registers and can be purchased for any dollar amount up to $500.
- Pick up a book of stamps or mail a package.
o Contract Postal Units which offer guests services that are available at your local post office. The following Skogens Festival Foods locations have a Contract Postal Unit located at their Service Desk: Onalaska, Eau Claire, Marshfield, Fond du Lac, Oshkosh, Green Bay West and Bellevue. This service is also coming soon to our Darboy, Suamico and new Sheboygan location.
o Services available are: Stamps, Stamped Envelopes, Stamped Postal Cards, Express Mail , First Class Mail, Parcel Post, Express Mail International, Priority Mail International, Insured and Certified Mail, Return Receipt, Delivery Confirmation, and Signature Confirmation.
o Books of stamps are available for sale at the Service Desk in all Skogens Festival Foods locations.
- Avoid a trip to your local DMV location and renew your license plates at any of our Skogen’s Festival Foods locations.
o DMV License Plate Renewals are processed at our Service Counter Monday thru Saturday during regular service counter hours. A $5 processing fee will be added to your renewal charge.
- If carpet cleaning is on your list, you can rent a Rug Doctor Carpet Cleaning Machine at the service counter too.
- Looking for a good movie? Before you leave stop at the Redbox machine.
o Redbox rentals are only $1 per night and they have a wide variety of new release movies available. I like the low price of the movies, but I really like the fact that I can return the movie at any Redbox location.
Spring has arrived, gas prices aren’t going down and the last thing I want to be doing on my day off is spend it running around town. Since I work at Skogens Festival Foods, I am aware of all of the services that are available. My guess is that many of you may not be aware that these additional services are available at our stores. Don’t keep this a secret. Save yourself time and gas money by taking advantage of these and many other great services that are available when you shop at Skogens Festival Foods. Save your friends and family time and money too by spreading the word.
