Spring Sale Week at Ingebretsen’s

Sale Week is a 2-times-a-year affair at Ingebretsen’s; the Spring Sale is the first to second Saturdays in May and the Fall Sale, the first to second Saturdays in October. We look forward to these weeks. They are a chance to thank customers by offering favorite items on sale and by presenting free events, opportunities to meet authors and artists, food tastings, craft demonstrations, and children’s activities.

We hope that you look forward to these sales, too, and that you’ll join us this week, May 2 to 9, as we have lots to share with you. A full schedule of events is here.

(For those of you already planning to stock up on Swedish meatball mix for Christmas, the Fall Sale Week is October 3 through 10.)

This year we’ve added a daily door prize to our sales events. There’s a drawing every day, so enter each time you visit. There are food samplings and our tried and a true favorite, lefse dogs, will be on sale for $1 each on Monday, May 4 from 1 to 2 and Saturday, May 9 from noon to 1.

Below are a few highlights of the week:
