BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — The Discovery Center, a hands-on interactive children’s museum, and Weis Markets on Monday celebrated the grand opening of a new interactive exhibit with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The Weis Markets Exhibit is a fully-stocked kid-sized grocery store where children can have fun exploring the shelves and filling their carts with fruits and vegetables, dairy products, seafood selections, deli offerings and other healthy choices.
The Weis Markets Exhibit is the one grocery store where kids are encouraged to touch everything. The new Weis Markets Exhibit replaces an older grocery store exhibit and features updated fixtures, products, registers, graphics and lighting.
This is the first children’s interactive exhibit that the Sunbury, Pennsylvania based grocery chain has sponsored.“We are pleased to welcome the shoppers of tomorrow to our Weis Markets Exhibit at The Discovery Center,” stated Mike Umstead, Weis Markets’ district manager. “When you watch children in our exhibit, you can see them having fun and appreciate their sense of wonder. You can tell they’ve already learned a lot from watching their parents shop.”
