Greet­ings & Sa­lu­ta­tions! Here’s what’s new this week in the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity…

Happy New Year! From our home to yours, we wish you peace and joy in 2019 and al­ways!

Stan­dard Store Up­date… The Broad­way Group is pleased to an­nounce that Ed and Cathy Chris­tensen are the new Op­er­a­tors of the Stan­dard Store! Watch for “Chris­tensen Gro­cery” to de­velop in the next few months. Ed and Cathy are lo­cal com­mu­nity mem­bers who are very in­volved in our com­mu­nity and are a per­fect fit for our store and to get the “hub of our com­mu­nity” back in op­er­a­tion. Ed and Cathy are will­ing to learn the shop­ping needs of our com­mu­nity as we all part­ner with them to make the store a suc­cess­ful busi­ness and es­sen­tial part of our com­mu­nity. We are de­lighted that Ed and Cathy have stepped for­ward to make this com­mit­ment and wish them all the best with Chris­tensen Gro­cery. Re­mem­ber – shop lo­cal!

Did you know… Over 1,000,000 Eu­ros are thrown into the Trevi foun­tain every year. The money is used to sub­si­dize a su­per­mar­ket for the needy. Peanut but­ter in a plas­tic jar at the su­per­mar­ket usu­ally has a sell-by date of about 18 months af­ter it hits the shelf. Past this date, if it’s un­opened it’s still per­fectly good. Opened, peanut but­ter will slowly de­velop off-fla­vors of ran­cid nuts over the next five or so years. Wild ba­nanas have seeds, and the ones we com­monly find in su­per­mar­kets are ster­ile clones of a mu­tant banana plant found in 1836.

Quote of the week… “Scat­ter Joy!” – Ralph Waldo Emer­son
