Good Harvest Market
On January 26th of 2005, Good Harvest Market opened its doors. The store floor plan was designed with ease of shopping in mind - about 1/5 the size of most conventional grocery stores, wider aisles, and relaxing colors which calmed the mind and body. Many shoppers enjoy spending an hour or more as they meander through the aisles, perhaps sipping on a mocha latte from the Harvest Cafe as they shop.
The store was also built using recycled materials and as energy efficient as possible. The heat from the refrigeration units, for instance, is used to heat the store, reducing carbon emissions. In fact, Good Harvest pays for 100% renewable energy through the WE Energies Energy for Tomorrow program. No plastic bags have ever been used for packing groceries; instead we use either paper or reusable canvas bags.
