“Customers are looking for new meal ideas for the grill this summer, but still want to save while shopping at the supermarket,” said Kent Harrison, senior director of marketing, Value Creation, Tyson Fresh Meats. “We are proud to offer our customers both with this promotion, while helping Fareway Stores increase sales of Chairman’s Reserve Premium Pork.”
