Events & Promotions
At Lakewinds, we have a lot to celebrate! From locally grown, organic produce to clean skin care, we love bringing good food and products to our shelves — and to you. We have seasonal events throughout the year, plus sales events, like Wellness Wednesdays, which are held the second Wednesday of each month, and Senior Tuesdays each week.
Here are some of our upcoming events, so you can take advantage of in-store savings and join us in celebrating at the co-op!
Fall Meat Sale
October 1 – 28
Our Spring Meat Sale was such a big hit that we’re doing it again — this time focusing on meats that are perfect for roasting or for when you’re hosting! Stock up and save on select sustainably raised meats — just in time for the holiday season. With different items featured each week, there are great options to fit almost any gathering. Sale is in stores only, while supplies last. Find details about what’s on sale here or in stores at the meat counter and the customer service desk.
October is Owner Appreciation Month
October is Owner Appreciation Month at the co-op, and we’re celebrating our owners all month long! This month Lakewinds owners can enjoy extra perks, including:
- An increase to the normal once-per-month owner discount — 10% instead of 5% off on the day of your choice!
- Extra special owner discounts throughout the store — find even more owner sales than usual featuring deep discounts on local favorites and pantry staples.
- Special freebies and giveaways at checkout, while supplies last — a Lakewinds laminated tote bag in the beginning of the month and a reusable produce/bulk bag later in the month. Get yours before they’re gone!
Another bonus this month is that owners’ annual patronage refunds are available at the register! Let your cashier know if you’d like to use it on any shopping trip now through March 2024. Thank you for your support and investment in the co-op!
October Owner Drive
Not a Lakewinds owner yet? October is the best time to become one. It’s our annual owner drive month! In addition to the regular incentives of ownership, new owners who sign up in October get special perks, including:
- Free limited edition canvas tote bag and window cling.
- One entry into a drawing for a $100 co-op gift card, with two winners drawn per store in early November.
- Ability to use the monthly owner discount and receive owner savings right away.
Join the co-op for a one-time $90 stock purchase, which covers everyone in your household and is good for life. Becoming an owner is easy, and it only takes a few minutes to sign up. Simply let the cashier know at checkout or swing by the customer service desk the next time you visit the co-op. Learn about the perks of co-op ownership.
