Over the past weeks, we are highlighting the stories of 6 people that are and were as essential as they come these last 2 months!

Folks, this is Mitch Allen. Mitch came to work for us just prior to all the craziness that unfolded. He needed a part-time job to compliment his ASU Football Coaching schedule.

Do you remember those moments of intense fear we all had? During some of the darkest most stressful moments, Mitch would break into song, laugh joke, or say, “Guys, isn’t this just so fun working together?!”

We would look up from our task confused. What? Fun? We would look at eachother thinking “Is this guy for real?” Eventually we would laugh and joke too and then give in to having fun.

It turns out it was for real. HE is for real. There are some people that come along in life for a reason. We are pretty sure Mitch will eventually leave us to coach amazing sports teams. But, he was meant to be here in this moment to bring joy to our team when we couldn’t find it.

If you’ve been served by Mitch in recent months, you know it’s true. He makes you smile and laugh even when you’re committed not to!

Thank you Mitch for being your “Loctastic” self and sharing that with us all!

2 months ago, we got a phone call from Jeff Hacsi at Town & Country Automall. They knew we had begun delivering groceries to quarantining families and wanted to help. These last 2 months delivery services have kept our business going and kept our employees working. We could not have done this without the generosity and support of Town & Country.

We would like to point out that often times it is tempting to go out of the valley to buy vehicles or other goods. But during this time, not one single business outside of the valley came to help or support us. It was our own people helping each other. We hope you’ll remember what Town & Country did for our business the next time you consider buying a vehicle. ❤️

This week, we are sharing the stories of 6 amazing people who have worked with grit and heart the past few months to keep our little store running. THEY are the ❤️ and soul of who we are and what we do.

Pictured here is DeAnna Romero. When DeAnna first came to work for us, she was very quiet and soft spoken. She built relationships within our team slowly and at her own pace. When it was time to promote someone into a supervisory position, we knew DeAnna had the processes and procedures down pat. But, we wondered if her gentle spirt would be strong enough to manage staff and difficult situations.

DeAnna took on that roll and put her heart into it. She remains a kind, gentle leader, but staff respect her authority and she manages complex situations with confidence! We are so very proud of her for learning and growing with us!

On a side note, she often bakes amazing fresh bread for our staff, so clearly she is a keeper! Thank you DeAnna for sticking with us during these difficult times while still being able to care for people!

One sad consequence of recent events has been the redistribution of dollars from locally owned community businesses to large corporate box stores.

Locavores has joined a group of local merchants in a cooperative to provide additional household and personal care items often purchased at these larger entities.

While these products are not locally made and may not be everything on your shopping list, the revenue from their purchase stays in the community...and we go the extra mile delivering to your door.

Finally, while this has been a difficult journey for all of us, we want you to know we remain committed to grow and evolve with the needs of our amazing community in whatever direction that takes us.

The past few months, we worked with a skeleton crew to keep going. Employees that had other jobs graciously stepped aside so we could give hours to those that this was their only job. Over the next week, we’d like to share the stories of 6 people who showed up every day facing immense fear and who learned a million new things to keep things going. They are what makes us who we are!

Pictured to the left here is Eileen. Eileen has worked at Locavores since opening day. She is our chief quality expert. Although quiet spoken...if we do not follow our quality standards she will let us know! She is reliable, trustworthy and a vital piece of our amazing team! If you love our freshness, it’s because she is a guardian of the process!
