City Sackers Online Grocery Store Looks To Provide Fast, Reliable And Inexpensive Grocery Delivery To Austinites

Now all citizens of the greater Austin area are able to shop for thousands of groceries, without leaving their home. City Sackers Inc., an Austin based online grocery store, looks to revolutionize the way Austinites live and go about their daily errands.

City Sackers has compiled thousands of items into their website’s database to better serve the needs of their customers. Almost any and all varieties of general items found in a grocery store can also be found at their website. In addition to these grocery items, City Sackers has also included numerous organic, household, fitness, and pet products into their inventory.

To many Austinites, the rigors of school or work encompass the majority of their daytime. After the day’s responsibilities have been fulfilled, the last thing anyone wants to do is fight through the crowded lines and aisles of a grocery store. Instead, potential customers can now simply log onto www.citysackers.com and select the groceries they want delivered to their door. Schedule a time that is most convenient for the groceries to be delivered and City Sackers will bring them right to your doorstep. Its that simple.

The underlying benefit of City Sackers is the convenience they bring to their customers. Those without cars would have to comply with rising cab fares in order to get to and from their local grocery store. And most mass transit available in Austin is not conducive to people bringing fresh groceries. With both of those options, people must comply with the schedule of the transporter in order to accomplish their grocery shopping. With City Sackers, they will adjust to your convenience and your schedule.

Competitive product prices and low delivery cost make City Sackers online grocery delivery a true asset to those living in Austin.

Waitrose, Provides Clarence Court Eggs To Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel In An Attempt To Produce The World’s Largest Scotch Egg

Waitrose, in collaboration with Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel, has helped make the largest recorded Scotch egg. The supermarket chain supplied special exclusive Clarence Court Ostrich eggs to create the meaty mélange which weighed in at 6.2kg, the equivalent to a bowling ball.

In order to break the previous record, Clarence Court called upon Lee Streeton, Executive Chef at Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel. Using a number of fresh groceries including 1.7kg ostrich egg, 4kg of Gloucester Old Spot sausage-meat, 940g of haggis and 800g of breadcrumbs for the coating, the entire cooking process took more than eight hours, with ninety minutes alone spent boiling the egg.

The ultimate picnic food, the Scotch egg is a prime example of authentic, indigenous, hearty British produce. Contrary to popular belief, it was not invented by the Scots but rather the London food shop Fortnum & Mason, who first concocted this portable version of sausage and eggs in 1738.

Clarence Court Director, Lisa Rowe, said, “As industry innovators, we are delighted to be able to work with Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel to produce this super-sized snack. The ostrich egg is the latest – and largest – addition to our range, so it only seemed fitting to let Lee Streeton have a bit of fun with it and cook up something rather different for The Albemarle carving trolley.”

Streeton added, “Genuine Scotch eggs epitomise good, honest food, so what could be better than making an extra large version using the best of British? As a chef that is passionate about sourcing local fresh foods, it has been enormous fun to re-create this much-loved picnic staple and champion a food that has been part of our history for hundreds of years.”

Estella, a leading retailer of Baby Clothes, Designer Children’s Clothes & Unique Kids Clothes, today announced the debut of their back to school clothes and partnership with Action Against Hunger, a charity devoted to fighting hunger in more than 40 countries. For every purchase made from Estella this Fall and Winter, the retailer of contemporary fashions designed for children, will donate one Plumpy’Nut to a child in need. Featured on CBS’s 60 minutes and other prominent media, Plumpy’nut is a prepackaged, easy to administer peanut butter based concoction that helps severely malnourished children (6 months to 5 years old) recover from starvation.

Estella kicks off this charitable campaign with the arrival of its back to school collection of designer children’s clothes and fall apparel including kids shirts, shorts, dresses, coats, outerwear, trousers and pants for boys and girls, unisex baby clothes, baby boy and baby girl clothes.

“This charitable campaign is designed to raise awareness of a little known breakthrough cure for a big disease afflicting less fortunate babies and kids, the same age as the children our store caters to,” said Estella co-founder Chike Chukwulozie. “As an African-born American, I have witnessed childhood starvation and am excited to be doing something about it. While Estella’s campaign will not eradicate childhood starvation, we can help raise awareness and save a few lives,” added Mr. Chukwulozie.

One of the first lines to arrive that will benefit this hunger fighting program is European designer Album di Famiglia. Estella introduced this European designer to New York and online in 2003 and has now collaborated with Album di Famiglia to launch a line of baby onesie rompers. Exclusive to Estella, these striped one-piece rompers are modern, stylish, cashmere soft, yet practical and easy to care for.

With our collaboration with Action Against Hunger and prominent designer collections, we have squarely met this goal this season.” stated Mr. Chukwulozie.

Anti global warming, environmental and vegan t-shirt designs for spring and summer

The new spring and summer designs from General Utility are a mix of retro classic style, commentary and dry humor. The new “Keep Cold” design is an anti global warming t-shirt with kitschy ice type. The “Off Shore” t-shirt is beach scene with seagulls and off shore drilling looming behind. The “Vegan Dog” t-shirt has a hot dog with Vegan spelled in gooey yellow mustard. Also, there is a new color version of the best-selling “White Collar Crime” t-shirt.

General Utility streetwear is printed on fine quality apparel. Most designs are available on super soft, American Made t-shirts. A variety of cuts and styles are available for both men and women. The goods are printed with ultra lightweight and durable Flex Printing. The web store is easy to use, has secure order processing and fast shipping.

Doug Domonkos, a San Francisco artist and graphic designer, opened the General Utility online shop in 2006. Doug started designing and selling t-shirts in 2002 while he was the owner of a San Francisco art gallery, called National Product. Since the beginning, the ironic, subtle and classic designs have attracted many loyal customers. Although there are many t-shirts on the market, Doug saw the need to make a t-shirt line that had an urban edge, but was not over-complicated or trendy. The result is a line of goods that has long-lasting style and looks good – season after season. General Utility will continue to add fresh and new designs, to the product line, every spring and fall.

Returning this year will be the giant chocolate fountain with free milk chocolate treats available every day of the show.

Company president, Anne Reinke, explains, “The Southern Women’s Show is a great opportunity for diamond and jewelry shoppers to come ask the questions they have without the intimidation they typically find in a jewelry store. We function like a personal jewelry consultant to find the best diamonds and custom jewelry items in the country that meet our client’s requirements and we do that with some of the lowest prices in the country.”

Diamond Source of Virginia specializes in the hard-to-find diamonds, with large carat weights, fancy shapes and ideal cuts seldom found in jewelry store.

Easy decorating tips and trends for the coming spring season

Leading online retailer ShopTableLamps.com announces easy decorating tips and trends for the coming spring season.

Winter weather is still a force in many parts of the country, but spring, and spring decorating isn’t far off. With many homeowners looking to brighten their home with the latest decorating colors and beat the winter blues, ShopTableLamps.com, a leading online retailer of decorative table lamp and desk lamp lighting, offers these handy tips for giving rooms a spring clean decorating makeover.

* Color is a given for all spring decorating, but even more so this year, as a bright palate of lilac, raspberry, orange and golden yellow dominates. Consumers should look for contemporary table lamps with shades or lamps bases in these in-style colors and tones to brighten their rooms.
* Traditional Tiffany style lighting remains as popular as ever. New, bold designs feature Tiffany art shades in vibrant purple and green colors that bring a fresh look to the traditional Tiffany, Mission and Arts and Crafts look.
* With designers using more earth tones on the walls and ceilings, they are using colorful lamp bases and shades as a color anchor in room designs. Especially popular this year are ceramic lamps in bright colors.
* Earthy wood tones are also popular in lighting designs. Wood pole table lamps with a hint of the tropical help coordinate with bamboo flooring, rattan furniture and other wood-tone home décor items.
* If color isn’t your thing, new glass body table lamps and monochromatic black and white base designs offer soothing treats for the eye. These lamp designs mesh well with the suddenly popular Hollywood décor style, as well as look great in more contemporary settings.
* Function is what it’s about in desk lamp lighting, but don’t overlook the opportunity to add color to your home office or work space as well. New contemporary desk lamps come in a rainbow of colors, from vivid greens to cool blues, to help bring a little color therapy to the desk.
