We know they will love it as much as they have loved Western Family,” said Boyd Irving, director of exclusive brands for Associated Food Stores. “We believe in Food Club so much, hat we’re offering a double-money back guarantee if any guest is unsatisfied with the product.”
Food Club focuses on staple categories in center store, including canned fruits and vegetables, baking items like sugar and flour, condiments, cereal, crackers and other snacks, condiments, and frozen items including fruits, vegetables, ice cream, novelties and potatoes.
