12 Days of Cromer's: Day Four

11 December, 2015

Happy fourth day of 12 Days of Cromer's! Miranda is our cotton candy queen, and today is her birthday! To honor her today, we are featuring our fluffy, sweet and delicious cotton candy! 

One of the great things about our cotton candy, besides the obvious great taste, is the ability to customize it completely for our customers. It is a perfect snack to stock your concession stands and parties with! 

Cotton candy is one of our favorite food products to prepare. Why?  There are a few reasons:  

  • Taste – C’mon, this is handspun sweetness!
  • Packaging – By using our clear plastic bags we help the schools, sports boosters clubs, weddings and more to private label the cotton candy with their logo or image stickers on the bags.
  • Choices of flavors & branding – Whether it’s no-flavor, blueberry, strawberry or something else, flavors abound for the cotton candy. The cool thing about the flavors is that each flavor has a color associated with it.  This means that we can customize your cotton candy and tailor the colors (flavors) to match the school’s (or camp, or church, or business or wedding) colors. 

Want this fluffy, sweet treat and more? Get our Sweet Tooth gift basket! With this basket, no sweet tooth will be left unsatisfied. 

  • 2 lbs. of individually wrapped candy
  • 3 oz. of creamy caramel corn
  • 8 oz. of homemade peanut brittle
  • 3.5 oz. bag of real cheddar cheese corn
  • 3 oz. of cotton candy
  • A stuffed monkey named after our founder, Julian

Happy Birthday to our cotton candy queen Miranda! We are so lucky to have had you for the past 37 years and we look forward to many more.

Be Local, Shop Local, Save Local.

23 November, 2015

When you choose to shop and eat local, you are not only getting a hometown feel, you're also creating a huge positive impact on our economy, environment and community.

Cromer's has been a locally-owned and operated business for 80 years. We are proud of being the "Guaranteed Worst In Town" and strive to make the best products for our customers. We know customer service begins the moment someone hears about us and approaches us for business. We strive to make a positive and lasting impression on everyone who comes in the store, calls our store and visits our website. Being a local business, we understand how important it is to keep our spending dollars here, and that is why we buy everything we can from locally sourced businesses. 

Metro Family Magazine lists 15 reasons to shop and eat locally:

  1. Keep Money Local—Sales taxes fund our communities and provide vital services such as police and fire protection, street repairs and trash collection. “Local businesses are more likely to shop with other local businesses, keeping money moving in our local economy even longer,” explains Morgan Harris, owner of Green Bambino (www.green-bambino.com), the largest cloth diaper retailer in Oklahoma. 
  2. Local Investment—Local businesses are less susceptible to national downturns and more likely to work harder to stay open. “Local ownership means that important decisions are made by people who live in our community and feel the impact of those decisions,” explains Chris Branson, co-founder of Keep It Local OK.
  3. Locally-Made Products—Local business owners often sell local products, which helps preserve the community’s distinction and creates more jobs locally, as well.
  4. Support for Nonprofits—Local businesses support good work in our community. “Studies show that nonprofits receive 250 percent more support from small businesses than large ones,” explains Sue Lynn Sasser, PhD, professor of economics at the University of Central Oklahoma.
  5. Discover Interesting Things and People— Locally owned businesses are one of a kind, which means you can't find them anywhere else. 
  6. Personal Connection—Getting to know the store owners is a great reason to shop local. “It’s their business, they are the decision-makers and they build a personal relationship with their customers,” Sasser says.
  7. Product Knowledge—Local business owners are well informed about their products and know what they are selling. “Because they know their customers, they can easily adjust their inventories to include the goods and services local people want to buy,” Sasser explains.
  8. Diverse Products—Local stores carry inventory you might not find at national chain stores. “Local business owners choose products based on what their customers want and often carry unique items from local artists and farmers,” Branson says.
  9. Cost Effective—“Sometimes prices at local businesses are better because they don’t have the overhead that larger stores may have and they may be more willing to negotiate to meet your price needs,” Sasser says.
  10. Better Experience—Local shopping can translate to more convenient retail experiences. 
  11. Less “Leakage”—Local businesses tend to buy and sell with other local businesses. “With national or multi-national firms, a percentage of that profit ‘leaks’ out of the community, the state or even the nation,” Sasser notes.
  12. Increased Expertise—Shopping at a local store means you can get an expert opinion about the products that you’re purchasing. “Local shop owners have to be experts in their field to compete. Use them—ask them questions and get advice about products,” Bailey encourages.
  13. Create Community—“We are a transitory society so people don’t always have a connection with the communities where they live. I would encourage people new to an area to ask the locals where they shop,” Sasser says.
  14. Better Service—Local business owners do what they do because they are passionate about their products and typically take more time to get to know their customers. “They’ll often go the extra mile to help you and to ensure you’re a satisfied customer,” Sasser says.
  15. Support Future Growth—Our experts agree on the last reason—shopping locally is the best way to show pride in your city and help protect the businesses that make our city unique.

We want everyone to love us, our products and our company. So shop local this holiday season! It's time to stop giving everything back to corporate America.
