Trade Talk: Get rewarded for eating pizzaLike virtue, pizza is its own reward.
But Fargo’s Pizza Ranch isn’t stopping there.
It recently introduced a guest loyalty program – Ranch Rewards – that gives participating customers the chance to earn one “point” for every dollar spent on qualifying purchases.
Whenever a guest reaches 75 points, Pizza Ranch adds $5 in Ranch Rewards to the person’s card, which can be redeemed for food and beverages at participating locations.
Besides Fargo, other participating restaurants are in Casselton, Carrington, Dickinson, Devils Lake, Harvey and Jamestown in North Dakota. Minnesota locations participating will include Dilworth, Fergus Falls, Perham and Wadena.
“Ranch Rewards is our way of giving back to the people of the Fargo community and demonstrate our sincere appreciation for their support and loyalty,” said Dean Larsen, general manager of Fargo Pizza Ranch.
Customers can get their Ranch Reward card from the restaurant, or go online at www.ranchrewards.com.
Either way, cards must be registered at the website before rewards can be redeemed. Visit the website for more information.
Camy Couture in West Fargo is under new ownership and marking the change with a grand reopening.
The women’s boutique at 1420 9th St. E., the Pioneer Center, was purchased in September by Rachel and Joshua Clarke as well as Emily Coler Hanson and her husband, Ben Hanson.
Formerly known as Bella Boutique, Camy Couture was the first women’s occasional-sale boutique in the Fargo-Moorhead area, specializing in designer-inspired handbags, couture clothing and accessories.
It will open for five consecutive days at the start of each month beginning with the first Wednesday.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday; and noon to 4 p.m., Sunday.
The store is marking its fifth year in West Fargo. Its grand reopening celebration runs through Sunday.
