WEEK #49 DECEMBER 4, 2023

Dear Customers,

Much like Ralphie’s dad in “The Christmas Story”, himself a self-proclaimed ‘turkey junkie’, I am undoubtedly a “Christmas junkie”!  From the time I was old enough to walk, I’ve been thrilled with the entire month of December; the brightly colored lights, the sweet delicacies, and of course the gaily wrapped gifts hiding on the top shelf of my mother’s closet!

You won’t see any skeletons, blow-up spiders or fake cobwebs adorning my house for Halloween. . . but Christmas is an entirely different matter.  Every year I get set to decorate a little earlier, (you know, while it’s still decent weather), but my wife reins me in at every opportunity.  In her family, December 14th was time enough to begin thinking about maybe getting a tree for the living room.  Hah!  By then my tree was already losing its needles!

Throughout the month of December, you will have multiple reasons to shop at Costa’s Supermarket.  First of all, is our tremendous selection of quality meats, fruits, vegetables, fresh breads and incomparable sweets.  Secondly, we offer expert help when planning a party and determining how much to buy to serve your guests.  In addition, we have a full supply of gift cards in multiple denominations for that “hard-to-buy-for” person on your Christmas list – or perhaps a custom-built fruit basket?  “Fruit Basket” is actually a misnomer.  Sure, it may have fruit in it, but we’ll also put just about anything else in there that you’d want.  They make absolutely excellent gifts for the person who already has everything they need!

And don’t forget our huge assortment of party platters available in multiple sizes, one to fit any special need – be it party or impromptu gathering.  Whether it be meats, cheeses, seafood or desserts we can take the worry out of entertaining leaving you with nothing but time on your hands!
