In preparation for the upcoming holiday season, The United Family of stores is hosting guest appreciation Holiday Open Houses featuring product samples and party ideas to inspire creative solutions for festive and seasonal parties. The weekend-long event, Saturday, Nov. 14 and Sunday, Nov. 15, will include all 66 United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos and Albertsons Market locations in West Texas, Dallas-Fort Worth and New Mexico.

The open house will showcase everything guests need for an unforgettable holiday party, including catering, bakery, floral and more. In addition, to show appreciation for rewards members, each store will have items specially marked that enable guests to earn 50 bonus points, which can be used for free fuel and groceries.

“The Holiday Open House will help our guests enjoy time with loved ones this holiday season, rather than stress over meals and decorations,” said Wes Jackson, chief merchandising officer for The United Family. “Our team is eager to demonstrate just how easy holiday planning can be at United Family stores.”

United Family stores also have complete dinner menus for Thanksgiving and Christmas available to pre-order for pick-up during the holidays, except at select locations. Entrée options are roasted turkey, garlic rosemary prime rib and sliced ham, complete with side dishes, such as white cheddar sage mashed potatoes. Rewards members who preorder dinner during the Holiday Open House will also receive a voucher coupon for 400 bonus points.
