Downtown's Patrick's Market wants to make grocery shopping as easy as riding a bike.
The grocer at 1416 Howard St. is giving away a custom-painted Civia Halsted grocery bike to the downtown apartment or condominium complex that collects the most resident signatures. By signing the petition, the resident agrees to use the bike to shop at Patrick's Market and the complex agrees to keep the bike in a secure area for residents' use. Petitions are available at the store and must be returned by June 30.
“We hope this bike can make grocery shopping a little easier for downtown residents and make downtown living even more enjoyable,” said Patrick's Market Vice President PJ Andersen. “We view this as an opportunity for us to help our neighbors.”
The grocery bike features a front basket to accommodate groceries.
In addition, Patrick's Market will offer a 10 percent discount on purchases for the first month for bike users from the winning complex.
