"Wow! Woo Hoo! Thank you!" These are the first words that came to mind for all of us at Foodland as we learned that you had voted us "Hawaii's Best Grocery Store" in the Honolulu Star Advertiser's People's Choice Awards -- for the fourth year in a row and "Hawaii's Best Poke" for the fifth year in a row. To be recognized by the customers we work so hard to serve is a tremendous honor and we are grateful to all of you for the support and confidence you have in us.
This week as you visit our stores, you may see our employees in green t-shirts celebrating this wonderful honor you have bestowed on us. The giving of celebratory t-shirts to our team when we are voted Hawaii's Best Grocery has become a custom here at Foodland. A means of thanking our employees for what they have helped us to accomplish, the t-shirts also allow them to share their pride in our company and celebrate with you, our customers who have made this recognition possible.
This year's t-shirt, created by our in-house senior designer Nelly Tang graphically expresses two phrases: "Hawaii loves Foodland" on the front and "Foodland loves Hawaii" on the back. We think it's a perfect way to capture how we feel about our customers and our community -- and how you feel about us! We are proud that you have shown how much you love our company by voting us Hawaii's Best Grocery Store and we hope you know not only how very much we care about you, but how committed we are to continually challenging ourselves to be a great place for you to shop.
Because you play such a vital role in our success, we are celebrating being voted Hawaii's Best Grocery Store for the fourth year in a row by offering you Double Maika'i Points on your entire grocery purchase when you shop on Tuesday, June 24. Plus, thanks to our great partners at Hawaiian Airlines , we'll be offering 200 bonus HawaiianMiles (400 total) when you redeem one My Rewards certificate on Tuesday, July 1. (Bonus miles offer is limited to one My Rewards certificate per Maika'i card).
From the more than 2,500 of us who work at Foodland throughout the state, mahalo for your business and for your confidence in us. And thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for voting us Hawaii's Best Grocery Store and Hawaii's Best Poke again this year!
