Harry & David Announces Grand Opening of New Store Located at The Centerra Shops in Loveland, CO

The Gourmet Gifting Retailer's New Flagship Store Will Showcase the Brand's Latest Gourmet Offerings

MEDFORD, OR--(Marketwired - Sep 12, 2014) - Harry & David, America's trusted gourmet gifting curator, is excited to announce the grand opening of a new Flagship store in Loveland, Colorado, on September 19, 2014. As Harry & David celebrates its 80th anniversary, the company is excited to open this new concept, specialty food store.

The Loveland-based Harry & David store features an all-new interior design honoring the heritage of the brand through the use of architectural elements such as lighting and a reclaimed wood wall made from the wood crates used to harvest our pear orchards. The store expresses a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, and features a gathering table where customers can enjoy a complimentary cup of several coffees featured daily, peruse decorating and entertaining books, and enjoy the stylish interior of the store. This exciting new gourmet food store is located in The Promenade Shops at Centerra (5865 Sky Pond Drive, Suite G-168) across from Bent Fork Grill.

"We're excited to open this beautiful new store in the wonderful city of Loveland, CO," said Catherine McCabe, VP Stores of Harry & David. "Loveland is a magnificent city with such great residents, and we're thrilled to be reintroducing this location and to showcase the future of the Harry & David retail experience to local customers. The store will be led by Tom Ward, who has worked hard over the past year to connect with Loveland residents and develop a strong sense of community."

"As we are in the midst of celebrating our 80th Anniversary, the Loveland location is just the first step towards a new era for Harry & David," added Craig Johnson, CEO of Harry & David. "We are always looking for fresh, bold ways to upgrade our brand."

In addition to the Grand Opening of the Loveland-based specialty food store, Harry & David will be powering a food truck in the Denver/Ft. Collins/Loveland areas September 19-21 to entice Coloradoans to taste some of our favorite Harry & David recipes from our executive chef Tim Keller. These recipes include product that can be purchased at all store locations and range from Blue Cheese & Harry & David's signature Royal Riviera® Pears to Brie with Peach and Pepper Jelly. The food truck -- better known as the Epicurean Express -- will be on the move, and you can follow its stops for the day by visiting the Harry & David Facebook page at: http://facebook.com/HarryandDavid. Harry & David will also be rolling out a social media program featuring testimonials from delighted customers, photos, videos, a printable coupon and much more.
