Statesboro (Georgia) Magazine recently recognized the commitment that BI-LO store No. 5567 has for its customers with its “Fabulist” award.
From December 2014 to January 2015, the magazine invited readers to help choose 100 of the most fabulous people, places, and things in Statesboro. A broad range of categories included everything from “Best News Story of 2014” to “Best Dirt Road in the County.”
The most “fabulist” grocer also hosted a special event for customers Feb. 28 with a Customer Appreciation Day. Customers of all ages attended the event, which featured a bounce house and face painting. The event also offered a prize wheel, which was a popular station as customers had a chance to win prizes and giveaways that also included mystery gift cards. The eventful day also had a grill out supplied with free hotdogs, drinks and chips for all attendees. Customers also had the chance to receive a free health screening from the BI-LO pharmacy and meet with their local pharmacist. Screenings included basic blood pressure checks and glucose screenings.
“It was a pleasure to give back to our community by hosting this event and letting the customers enjoy a special shopping experience,” said BI-LO No 5567 store director Debra McKenzie. “We were also honored to be named the most “fabulist” grocer in Statesboro by the Statesboro Magazine. We strive to give our customers and community a great shopping experience and being awarded shows us that our customers are having a great time at BI-LO and that is what matters at the end of the day.”
McKenzie accepted the award for the most “fabulist” grocery store in Statesboro at a reception, where she thanked the community for their outstanding support for BI-LO.
