Accent Inns giving away hotel stays to lucky grocery store employees – Kelowna News

Award-winning grocers

Accent Inn employees recently went to grocery stores across the province, but they weren’t buying food.

Instead, they were handing out vacation vouchers for Hotel Zed stays to grocery store workers who had worked hard during the pandemic.

“If this pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that rest is key,” Mandy Farmer, CEO of Accent Inn and Hotel Zed, said in a press release. “Front line grocery store workers are at huge risk whenever there is a surge of infection.

“After almost two years of living in the pandemic, these workers deserve our understanding and recognition more than ever. We would like to thank these people and let them know that we would be delighted to welcome them for a little rest and relaxation.

There are Hotel Zed locations in Kelowna, Tofino and Victoria. Accent Inns has supported several types of frontline workers during the pandemic, from transit drivers to teachers.

“It definitely brightened up some days for staff members,” said Kamloops FreshCO owner Steve Fremmerlid. “It was an incredibly kind gesture and the recognition of what we’ve had to accomplish since opening almost two years ago has come a long way.”
