PRODUCE EXTRAVAGANZA SALE
It’s time for the Produce Extravaganza Sale at Susanville Supermarket IGA. On May 2 and 3 you’ll find all your favorite seasonal produce at incredibly low prices. Spring is a great time to get healthy, and there’s no better way to do that than increasing your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables. Best of all, when you increase your amount of fresh produce you’ll start to feel better and have more energy to enjoy your favorite activities. Or you can simply enjoy a decadent indulgent like fresh berries and whipped cream. No matter how you serve them up, you’ll find farm-fresh produce makes any meal taste better.
