SpartanNash Seeks Reusable Bag Designs

02/15/2017

SpartanNash is asking its store guests, associates and communities from across the U.S. to submit digital designs that represent local state pride in Nebraska, North Dakota and Michigan to be featured on its limited-edition reusable bags.

The contest is part of SpartanNash’s company-wide Earth Week activities, which will emphasize the company’s commitments to corporate responsibility and environmental sustainability. The company encourages customers to use reusable bags to help decrease the consumption of single-use bags.

To enter the reusable bag design contest, participants can submit artwork that shows their state pride and what it means to be local for any of the three states. The goal of the reusable bag design contest is to showcase state pride and celebrate the talented artists that are part of the communities SpartanNash serves.

Deadline to enter via email is March 1.

The three winners each will receive a $500 cash prize and their designs will be featured on limited-edition reusable grocery shopping bags in SpartanNash corporate-owned stores in Nebraska (Family Fare Supermarkets, Family Fresh Market, No Frills, SunMart and Supermercado Nuestra Familia), North Dakota (Dan’s Supermarket and Family Fare Supermarkets) and Michigan (D&W Fresh Market, Family Fare Supermarkets, Forest Hills Foods, ValuLand and VG’s).

“Our vision at SpartanNash is to be a best-in-class business that feels local, where relationships matter, and this reusable bag design contest really celebrates those local ties,” said Meredith Gremel, VP of corporate affairs and communications. “We are encouraging our store guests, associates and communities to show us what it means to be from the state you love, and we hope that our customers will enjoy using the reusable bags that have a fun design and reflect the places where they live, work or vacation.”

One winning design will be selected from each state, and the winning artists and their artwork will be announced on Earth Day, April 22, with bags becoming available in the following months.

Grand Rapids, Mich.-based SpartanNash’s core businesses include distributing grocery products to independent grocery retailers, national accounts, its corporate-owned retail stores and U.S. military commissaries in 47 states and the District of Columbia, Europe, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Bahrain and Egypt.
