True to form, April Showers have brought forth May flowers, buds on the trees and the greenest grass! Vermont spring is a glorious time of year, filled with soft hues and the promise of great things to come. We at the Warren Store are busy sprucing up and the store is bursting with new merchandise and events for May. Jack is on a well deserved vacation, touring the west with his family, so Lori here writing to you.
In May, we celebrate Mother’s Day and Memorial Day and we are well stocked for both. You can find cards, gifts and flowers for all the important women in your life. Memorial Day means our annual Sidewalk Sale with deep discounts on clothing and gifts. James Hurley will be here on Saturday, May 27th signing his book, “The Contest”, a fly fishing story that delves deeper into the meaning of life and friendship. We have Jim’s tee shirts sporting his beautiful watercolors of native fish – a great Father’s Day gift; thinking ahead. We will also have a local beer tasting during this event.
We are rolling out a new service for the many brides we have coming to the Mad River Valley – Wedding Welcome bags. The bags will be filled with the favors a travelling guest will appreciate during their stay here, such as: treats, first aid and sewing kits, etc. These bags can be customized to suit any occasion. They will be premiered at our Chamber Mixer here at the store on Thursday, May 25th at 5:30. We will also be featuring local beer and our deli and bakery treats.
Main Street in front of the store will be dug up for repaving and beautification during May and June. But, we will be open for business as usual so please brave the mess and construction and come on in. The deck is open and the deli crew is pumping out our delicious, signature sandwiches and specials.
“Among the changing months, May stands confest the sweetest, and in fairest colors dressed.” — James Thomson
