The town of Chesterton, Indiana celebrated the return of long-awaited sunshine and warmer temperatures this weekend with their 14th annual European Market, once again bringing the ambience and character of a european shopping experience to the midwest.
Since July, Strack & Van Til has allowed customers to order their groceries online via www.instacart.com and pick them up curbside at the store in as little as an hour. Now, Strack & Van Til customers can order trusted and favorite national brands online and have them delivered right to their door. This new option allows customers to save time by eliminating the trip to the grocery store, which could take well over an hour.
