Tomorrow, Friday, July 30 will be Frugal Friday at the Corner Shoppe! This is a special day for customers age 59 and under to receive a 10% discount on purchases (other than luncheons). Sort of a reverse Senior Citizens Day!!

We still have lots of fresh blackberries for smoothies, plus will have date bars, lemon bars and other baked goodies!

We will feature the 24 day challenge; the firs ten days is a cleanse pack, for flattening your stomach, breaking food cravings and getting rid of toxins.
The next 14 days add energy, control appetite, help with weight loss and fuel up with core nutrition.

Lanny and I are taking the 24 day challenge, and are looking forward to having more energy and feeling rejuvenated!!!

We would like to start a 12 week exercise program in kettlebells. A FREE open house/demonstration will be held Monday, July 19th at 5:30 p.m. at the TaeKwon Do training hall, upstairs of the Corner Shoppe. If enough people are interested we have a certified instructor available for the following 12 Monday evenings.

The Corner Shoppe has a new front appearance, after years in the waiting, and a extended new name. The renovation of the store front is complete, short a few finishing touches.

We've also extended the name to include "Coffee House" so everyone knows we are more than a gift/variety shop.

Lanny has been in contact with a coffee wholesaler in Davenport, who was very helpful in teaching him some basics about the espresso machine. He told us he would "give" us an hour of his time to learn more about making specialty coffees (i.e. cappuccino's, latte's). A few weeks ago we traveled to Davenport, met him at 9:00 a.m. and 5 hours later packed our pickup with all sorts of advertising signs, new flavors of smoothie mixes, new products to sell, and lots of information to absorb!

We now offer iced coffee, blended ice coffee (in flavors of vanilla latte, mocha and caramel latte) and smoothies in the flavors of strawberry, lemon (my favorite), mixed berry, and orange tangerine.
