The Fruit Company announces its second-annual Fruit Friday Summer Warehouse Extravaganza, to be held June 21.
Kicking off the first day of summer, The Fruit Company is holding the warehouse sale from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday to clear out its inventory. Customers may choose from decorative boxes or wicker baskets and fill them with delectable fruit and gourmet treats — all on sale.
To sweeten the offer, the first 50 customers who arrive at the warehouse, located at 2900 Van Horn Drive in Hood River, will receive a gift box set of gourmet treats valued at more than $30. Attendees may also enter a raffle drawing to win a Bountiful Harvest Fruit gift basket, valued at $99 and filled with handpicked delights.
According to Scott Webster, CEO of The Fruit Company, “This is a wonderful opportunity for the local community to come visit our gifting facility, where some of the world’s finest fruit gifts are created, and choose their favorite varieties at 50-80 percent off retail.”
Excess inventories of gourmet goodies are also on hand for purchase. Fruit Friday hours run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Friday throughout the year.
Fruit Friday items are for purchase in person at the Hood River location only.
Orders are not accepted and items cannot be shipped. Fruit Friday selections change from week to week, so be sure to sign up for The Fruit Company’s emails to keep in-the-know about the following Friday’s choices. To find out more about The Fruit Company visit thefruitcompany.com.
Continuing its commitment to share fresh local fruit at affordable prices with the region, The Fruit Company has also designated every Friday as “Fruit Friday” a time when local customers and visitors can purchase world-renowned orchard fresh fruit at favorable discounted prices. The fruit is of higher quality than can be typically found at the grocer’s, but is available because it does not meet The Fruit Company’s extremely stringent gift grade requirements.
