Macedon Walmart manager Celia Eimer explains the new service to reporters.

“This will be a very beneficial service to our community,” said Chamber President Shelly Conboy. “It’s especially useful for busy parents, individuals with a physical impairment, or anyone in heels! The people of Macedon Walmart share a passion to give back and work with the community. I am excited to bring them on as a new member to our Chamber. I look forward to partnering with them in the upcoming year on this and other initiatives.”

An Easy-to-Use Service

To participate, customers go to walmart.com/grocery or download the the Walmart grocery app to their smartphones, enter their zip codes to select their local store, and create their shopping list from more than 30,000 grocery items. During checkout, they select a time to pick up their orders. Highly-trained personal shoppers will select and bag their order. At the pick-up time, the customer can park in specially-marked parking spaces and call a designated number. An associate will retrieve the order and load it in the customer’s car. As an added bonus, customers may take $10 off their first order of $50 or more by using the code WOWFRESH during checkout.

 
The service is available every day from 8 am to 8 pm. “In the name of convenience people just like things that are fast and convenient and it’s another way we can provide excellent customer service through Walmart,” said store manager Celia Eimer.

Chamber Co-Sponsors Holistic Health Fair

Macedon Public Library was the site for an Alternative and Holistic Health Fair, sponsored by the library and the Canal Connection Chamber of Commerce, which was held on Saturday, April 22 (which also happened to be Earth Day). Nearly a dozen exhibitors were present, representing holistic healing practices ranging from chiropractic to homeopathy to essential oils. They explained and demonstrated their services and offered samples to more than 30 attendees. The event was free and open to the public.

A Win-Win for the Community

“Patrons have often asked about having such a fair, and they certainly have an appetite for alternative and holistic medical literature,” said library director Stacey Wicksall. “Keeping this in mind, it seemed that offering the fair would be of value to the community. They would have the opportunity to meet local practitioners and sample some of their treatments to get a better sense of what alternatives appeal.  Also, for the local practitioners, the fair helped them to reach new clients, which means they, hopefully, will be able to continue offering their services in the area.  It’s a win-win!”

Chamber of Commerce President Shelly Conboy agreed with Wicksall. “Our successful event,  located in a central area, provided the community the opportunity to hear about holistic options available to them in our local communities,” she said. “As non-chemical healing  is on the rise, we were happy to support our community members with more education and opportunity to experience them.”
