“Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” - Mark Twain
Did you know that Mark Twain didn’t really say that? I knew that. Because Rainbow has recently become acquainted with rumors of our demise.
We’re still here. We’re still in business. Now, you might not know that if you’re going over to Whole Foods Market, but you shouldn’t be trusting the people who work in big box corporate stores, anyway. What you’ll get is misinformation. Misinformation like “Rainbow closed,” which is what their employees have been telling people who ask about your beloved cooperative.
Rainbow closed for two days to clean up after a flood. But we’ve been back open for almost two weeks now, and it’s just a little frustrating to have a 13 billion dollar company getting their basic details wrong. Maybe one of their employees could ask their new boss Alexa to take them to our website.
Frankly, we’re a little disappointed that you believed the dudes at Whole Foods in the first place. It’s easy to give Rainbow a call - we know, because a lot of you did just that when you heard this - and find out it’s not true.
So, to celebrate the wrongness of the Corporate Overlords, we’re throwing a pop-up Still In Business Sale. It’s like a “going out of business” sale, except for the going “out of” part. Really more of a “business” sale.
Friday, July 28th, we’re having a member’s day and we’ll put some special samples and stuff in Rainbow for you to come try. Members get their 10% discounts, shareholders get their 20% discounts, and we’ll all have a good time generally being open and in business and not deploying a fleet of drones.
