As always, our associates will be dressed up for the festivities! Associates across our stores just love dressing up in costume and many departments take time to plan out their theme and get really creative. Don’t be surprised if a flamingo waits on you in the deli or a cowgirl checks out your groceries while a clown is bagging them. Parents can think of Boofest as a warm-up for kids under 8 to the ‘real’ trick-or-treating that comes a few days later.
At this event, we offer activities and treats for kids at stations across our stores. Kids also can pick up snacks, decorate cookies or even get some non-food items. We know events like this can be tricky for kids with food allergies, which is why we’ll be offering teal pumpkin stations again this year. These are stations set up especially for kids with food allergies as part of the Teal Pumpkin Project, which offers kids non-food options, such as stickers, whistles, bracelets and pencils.
