“We know families and friends make memories over food across many holidays,” said Jessica Trowbridge, Corporate Affairs Manager at King Soopers. “At Thanksgiving, we see so many customers seeking out ingredients to make meals their families have shared for generations. It’s so rewarding to be part of their dinner tables and play an important role in reliving favorite memories and making new ones.”
