Chelsea’s Supermarket Sweep

Supermarket Sweep

Our Supermarket Sweep, a celebration of our Chelsea Branch’s grand opening in 2008, hit the Country Market store last Tuesday. Ten teams raced to grab almost $1,200 in food items for Faith in Action’s food pantry.

Congratulations to Chelsea’s Manpower, who took first place honors. Check out photos from the event at our Flickr photo gallery.

And check out the video from 2009’s Chelsea Supermarket Sweep.

American 1 participates in Chelsea Christmas parade



We brought our giant-sized Lego Home Office float to the Chelsea Christmas parade on Saturday, and it was a hit.

We braved the cold, blustery snow storm to set up the float, adding Christmas decorations – just like we did for the Jackson Christmas parade.

You can see us in the video above, or check out our photo gallery on our Flickr page.

Did you stand out in the cold to watch the parade? Let us know in the comments!

Chelsea Supermarket Sweep a hit

Chelsea Branch\'s grand opening

We celebrated two big events on Wednesday: both our Chelsea Branch’s grand opening, and the first Chelsea Supermarket Sweep at Country Market.

Here are a few more photos from the day.

Supermarket Sweep hits Chelsea’s Country Market

Chelsea\'s Supermarket Sweep at Country MarketAs if we didn’t learn our lesson before, we’re hosting another Supermarket Sweep – this time at Chelsea’s Country Market.

Get ready for fast-car flying action on Wednesday, May 28 starting at 11 a.m. Our American 1 team is assembled; now we’re getting other teams from businesses in the area to compete.

What’s at stake? Faith In Action’s food bank. All the food collected and donated by Country Market will benefit the assistance organization. Faith In Action is “a community funded, faith based assistance and resource center for those who need a helping hand” that serves the Chelsea and Dexter areas.

We’re doing our part, too, by holding a canned-food drive at our Chelsea Branch. Drop off your non-perishables at our branch or at Country Market starting Monday, May 19.

Otherwise, stop by the Supermarket Sweep when it happens May 28. If it’s anything like the Felpausch version, it’ll be quite the show. Teams of three will hold onto shopping carts as they run through the grocery store, grabbing as many specific food items as they can in five minutes. Then all the food collected is donated to Faith In Action.

The event will also serve as a Grand Opening for our Chelsea Branch.
