Thank you for being a customer of Greenlife Grocery, and thank you for your comments. The first thing I want to assure you is that Greenlife's quality standards in prepared foods remain steadfast: All products in our stores are made without the use of preservatives, chemicals, hydrogenated fats or artificial flavorings, colors or sweeteners. With the resources of Whole Foods Market, we added another quality standard — all items are now made with only cage-free eggs.
It is true that local produce has been harder to find in our stores lately, but with spring now here, each week you'll begin to find more and more local items. We're all excited about that and plan to have more local products in stores this year than ever before, in produce and in all departments. We will continue our tradition of holding a farmers market outside our store (opening day for that is May 1).
We value local community feedback highly, and I am empowered to respond to local community needs quickly. Most of us at Greenlife are still the same people you've known all along. We are dedicated to giving the Asheville community the very best Greenlife store we can.
I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you in person about your observations. Please stop in and ask for me.
