Cook Create Celebrate August 2017

 AUGUST. ISSUE 60. 2017
Marcels Culinary Experience
Oh goodness, is August already here? We'd like to think we've had so much fun celebrating summer that we didn't give a second to how quickly August would be upon us! But here we are and we're not letting summer wind down without sharing all the exciting things we have planned for you this month.
 
To start, we are partnering with another downtown Glen Ellyn retailer, Enchantments, to celebrate Coco Chanel's birthday with a soirée you won't want to miss! And soak up the sun and the last of the warm summer air for another outdoor music festival with Sounds on the Street presented by the Alliance of Downtown Glen Ellyn. 
 
If you've been eyeing the Kamado Joe all summer long, now is the time to pick one up. It's a deal you won't want to miss. And with August, comes back to school time and what better way to celebrate going back to school than with a PB, J & J (peanut butter, jam, & jelly) promotion.
 
Our family of staff is growing, so stop in to meet the new faces in the store. And don't forget to register for our August cooking classes

AUGUST PROMOTIONS

There's no better time to shop for grills than during the month of August! We're putting the ultimate grill on sale this month (while supplies last).

BACK TO SCHOOL WITH PB, J & J SALE
 

Back to school is just a few weeks away, so we're celebrating this month with a promotion that takes us all back to school with a PB, J & J (Peanut Butter, Jams, & Jellies) sale! Buy any two or more peanut butters, jams, or jellies and receive 20% off your PB, J & J's!

But don't fret, we have your classic creamy and crunchy as well. And stock up now, while it's on sale!

 

STAFF HIGHLIGHT
This summer we welcomed Jennifer Dorn to the Marcel's family. Jennifer is a long time Glen Ellyn resident, having lived in town for 27 years. She loves to cook for her three young adult daughters and husband, and experiment with new recipes. She brings with her a wealth of retail experience, having been the retail manager of the much loved downtown Glen Ellyn retail shop, Paisley on Main, for the past 8 years. In her spare time, you can catch Jennifer antique shopping, reading, and recently, playing a little golf. If she could have one meal for the rest of her life, it would be a grilled filet, roasted baby potatoes, a side of broccolini and, of course, a great glass of wine.
 
We are thrilled to have Jennifer as a part of our team and invite you to stop in, say "hello" and get to know Jennifer. We are confident you will love her as much as we do!
