Mariano's Special Anniversary Customer Celebration #MyMarianos

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and Mariano’s.

Last year I was at my friend's house and we were discussing our favorite grocery store. She let me in on a bit of a secret I was not aware of. She kept stating she could never live without her "My Mariano's". That is exactly how she kept saying it . . . "My Mariano's". If you don't know, having a favorite grocery store is a very personal affair. I had not ever heard of 'My Mariano's' before and she let me know there was one opening in my area very soon.  As soon as My Mariano's opened in my area, I was there. I'm happy to report it has now become #MyMarianos as well. It's a personal thing, you know?

The first Mariano’s was opened in Arlington Heights in 2010, and is the store my friend frequents. I had the opportunity to visit her "My Mariano's" this past weekend for Mariano's 3rd Anniversary celebration. It is as fabulous as my own Mariano's, and just as busy! Mariano's is celebrating with a HUGE Customer Appreciation Celebration to honor their 3rd Anniversary! The Arlington Heights store is gorgeous and was full of people getting their shop on, and it was 10 am! The store was completely full and buzzing with excitement for the Anniversary Celebration.

Mariano's is showing their appreciation to all their customers with some extensive incentives! There are currently three (3) separate sweepstakes occurring. THREE, I did say three. That is how much Mariano's adores us!
