Great Harvest Bread
 As we start off July, Here are 5 quick Great Harvest updates.

1. Fun Summer Products - We have a few extra fun things on the menu while it is hot outside. 

      -Check out our refrigerator for a delicious Yogurt Parfait and the granola cup, for an easy, breakfast or snack.

      -Ice cream sandwiches (we will make a few each day with our oatmeal chocolate cookies).  A picture of one of these will be coming soon to our Facebook page. These are great to share, and a unique treat for the summer.

      -Catering orders - If you have an upcoming family picnic, outside gathering, or office meeting, we have a new catering menu, with some great sandwiches and treats.  10+ sandwiches for an order.  Give us a call to customize with at least 24 hours notice.

2. Closed Wednesday (July 4th) - Great Harvest Alexandria will be Closed on Independence Day (this Wednesday).  Please stop by today or tomorrow (Tuesday) or catch us on Thursday, July 5th.  We would much rather greet you with a friendly smile and free slice than with a locked door. We will also close one hour earlier on July 3, (open until 6:00 pm).  Give us a call if you want us to hold something for you. 703-671-8678 

3. Great Harvest Bingo... Starting this week, pick up a bingo card in the Alexandria store.  It should be fun, and the game gives you a chance to enter a drawing to win bread for a year.  Bring your smile for an easy first square.

4. We love hearing from you.  We get so many awesome comments in the bakery, so thanks for your feedback, smiles and positive attitudes.  We sure would appreciate it if you could give us a rating or comment online as well.  Here is a link to our Google page, or if you prefer Yelp, Next Door or Facebook.  Thank you so much, we do love serving you.

5. Whole Grain Corner - A couple of short articles to consider for your reading list
