Co+op Explorers has been around for several years, but it just got a little more exciting! We’ll be offering more variety so kids can discover something new each time they visit Wild Oats. We’ve also added rewards – kids can collect stamps on their passport each time they try something and when the passport is filled up they can select a prize.
If your kids are already Co+op Explorers, come to customer service and get them a new Co+op Explorer Passport, if they’re not Co+op Explorer yet, here’s the scoop:
Kids ages 12 and under can join Co+op Explorers to be eligible to receive free fruit or veggies each time they visit! To sign up, bring them to the customer service counter and ask to become a Co+op Explorer. Each child will be issued their very own super official Co+op Explorers Passport card!
Once kids are signed up, here’s how it works:
- Kids and parents stop by designated Co+op Explorers bin. In the bin, there will be a produce of the day and Co+op Explorers stickers. Take a sticker and put it on your child’s shirt or jacket (that’s so staff will know your child or children are Co+op Explorers, and they can account for the product at the checkout counter). Then, each child can take one item from the basket and enjoy eating it while you shop
- When you check out, please remind the cashier that your child or children got a free item as part of Co+op Explorers (in case the sticker isn’t visible) so that we can track participation in the program and stamp the child’s passport.
- Once the passport is filled up, bring it to customer service and the child can select a prize.
That’s all there is to it! If you have any questions, please ask any staff member and most importantly, have FUN trying new things!
