In response to the sheer quantity of daily requests from customers for gluten-free grocery items, we have put together an Endcap at the back of the store (between aisles 4 and 5) to help folks become familiar with their choices. That's right, an entire section of the store (albeit small) is now devoted exclusively to gluten-free. We have also put up “GF” shelf tags to identify gluten free items on their normal shelf spaces. A gluten-free diet is recommended in the treatment of celiac disease and wheat allergies.
Everyday we serve customers who are first timers when it comes to gluten-free shopping and many of these are first timers to Bloomingfoods. It is not unusual to see a Co-op employee giving a gluten-free shopper a tour around the store.
We hope our new Gluten-Free Endcap will be just the right starting point for our gluten free shoppers and, as always, we appreciate your input for new items and improvements.
