There’s a new shop in downtown Raleigh. Kindred Boutique opened up last Saturday on S. Wilmington Street. It’s a local incubator for handmade local North Carolina artists. I got to view the shop before it opened and talk with the staff. Elizabeth, Whitney and Michelle were all on had to tell me a bit about the […]

Have you ever driven by a local business you loved and saw the lights out, doors locked and a “for rent” sign in the window?  Did you feel a  sense of loss and a need for explanation?  We’ve all seen this a little more than less lately in Wake Forest, but the bottom line is […]

Lowe’s Foods to Stop Honoring Greenpoints Next Week

One of the things that sets Lowe’s Foods apart from its grocery store competitors is its participation in the S&H Greenpoints program, but now that is coming to an end on Oct. 6.

The N&O’s Sue Stock has details here.

The store is the only grocery in the area to offer the promotion. Customers would accumulate points simply by scanning their Lowe’s loyalty card and points were awarded based on the pre-tax dollar value of the purchase.

In return, Lowe’s would frequently offer special discounts for items when points were redeemed.

Despite this change, the Greenpoints aren’t worthless. In fact they can be redeemed online at dozens of retailers by going here.

If you’d like to tell Lowe’s Foods how you feel, you’ll have to call 888.537.8646. The Contact Us form is available here, but it looks like it might just be a survey.

The folks at gogoraleigh are unimpressed with the location, saying it is a poster-child for urban sprawl at its worst. For those of us in the far northern reaches of civilization, it will actually be a shorter drive to this Whole Foods than the one in Chapel Hill or to the Fresh Market, which moved farther south on Falls of Neuse Road last year.
