Herma’s News – Herma’s Message, Curbside Pick-Up and Delivery, The Garlic Box and Ontario Foods

Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship. – Omar N. Bradley

Dear Customers,

We hope you enjoyed your holiday. While social interaction remains limited, it was still so nice to see many of your friendly, familiar faces through car windows in the days leading up to Easter.

The curbside situation has my son joking that I should wear roller skates like at a 1950’s Drive-In Restaurant. While it is funny to imagine me in roller skates, that is how I feel half the time.

Humour aside, though, I would like to thank you for allowing me to be your personal shopper. I do so appreciate your continued support and loyalty during this difficult time, especially when I consider the challenges you face as a customer not actually being able to see the merchandise within the store.

That being said, we do intend to come up with a system that will allow us to offer pictures of foods and other household items that will serve as a reminder of what we have to offer for curbside pickup and delivery.

Again thank you so much for your continued support. It truly means the world to me.

Take care of yourselves and be strong.

Featured Ontario Food of the Week

It is important at this time to support local businesses. That is why we have decided to feature an Ontario business each week until things get back to normal.

This week’s featured Ontario Food of the week is…

The Garlic Box

Image may contain: 2 people

Jackie and Jim Rowe planted their first acre of garlic in 1996. Today they have an award-winning family-run business that grows non-GMO, pesticide-free garlic on its farm in Hensall, Ontario. They create all-natural gourmet products, like the seasonings listed below, that turn an otherwise plain food into something delicious and tasty. Garlic is also chalk full of health benefits too – a win, win in our books.

Ontario Garlic – Helps prevent cold and flu!

Studies show that consumption of Garlic can help to prevent getting colds and flu and/or reduce their severity. Ontario Garlic is known for it’s higher than average Allicin content, a sulphur compound known for its immune boosting properties. – The Garlic Box
