​Spotlight on Sponsors: Stewart’s Shops

By Gail Browning

Eri­ka Komoroske, Pub­lic Rela­tions Spe­cial­ist for Stewart’s cor­po­rate offices in Sarato­ga Springs, stat­ed, At Stewart’s Shops, we give back to the com­mu­ni­ties we serve because we believe in mak­ing com­mu­ni­ties stronger and bet­ter places to live. The Lan­dis Arbore­tum does just that – pro­mot­ing the preser­va­tion of our land and appre­ci­a­tion of trees and plants for a bet­ter envi­ron­ment. We are proud to sup­port such an inte­gral part of Schoharie and Mont­gomery Counties.”

Stewart’s Cor­po­ra­tion had con­tributed to many region­al events, such as the Lan­dis Arbore­tum 5K For­est Run. It has also award­ed Lan­dis a grant in 2020 for child and fam­i­ly friend­ly pro­gram­ming. It has award­ed sim­i­lar grants to Lan­dis in the past. 

Fact: did you know that choco­late milk is a recov­ery drink for run­ners? As the run­ners in the Arboretum’s 5K crossed the fin­ish line in August, they were pro­vid­ed Stewart’s low-fat choco­late milk and reg­u­lar choco­late milk to refu­el. Cor­nell University’s Depart­ment of Food Sci­ences recent­ly crowned Stewart’s choco­late milk – and white milk too — #1 in New York State.

Stewart’s strong­ly believes that region­al milk pro­duc­tion is the key to its prod­uct base and part­ners with 23 local dairy farms to source their raw milk. Dri­vers pick up the milk dai­ly. The milk is processed and bot­tled at the Stewart’s man­u­fac­tur­ing plant in Green­field, NY – all to ensure the high­est stan­dards of quality.

Stewart’s Shops also fea­ture pre­mi­um qual­i­ty ice cream – who could resist their creamy vanil­la milk­shakes? Stewart’s Shops offer com­pet­i­tive gas pric­ing, as well as many items con­ve­nient” to pick up on the way, com­ing or going, includ­ing that ear­ly morn­ing coffee.

Anoth­er fact: Stewart’s Shops donates $7.5 mil­lion in prod­uct and mon­e­tary dona­tions annu­al­ly. Lan­dis is tru­ly appre­cia­tive of its part­ner­ship with Stewart’s.
