Gluten Freely is currently having a “Store Closing” sale that runs through January 8, 2013. Many products are 70% off while supplies last. What will happen to Gluten Freely? Good question! Starting in January gluten-free recipes and tips can be found on the Live Better America and Betty Crocker websites. Both sites currently have gluten-free recipes and beginning January 9, 2013 (my birthday, in case you wondered) you will be able to find "healthified" gluten-free recipes along with gluten-free articles and other resources on the Live Better America site.
Here are some other FAQ and answers from Gluten Freely:
Why is the Gluten Freely store closing? Since launching GlutenFreely.com, we’ve been pleased to see the increase in gluten-free products now available in stores around the country. In fact, as a company, we remain committed to the gluten-free community by continuing to offer more than 300 gluten-free products from General Mills as well as future innovations. However, as more retailers carry a wider assortment of gluten-free products, there is less of a need for a specific gluten-free store, and therefore, we will be closing our online store.
What happens if I’m not satisfied with the products I receive after the store closes? GlutenFreely’s Consumer Services Department will remain fully staffed through January 31, 2013, to ensure we handle any questions or concerns with your final order. Please reach call us toll-free at 1-855-466-4588 between 7:30 am and 5:30 pm, CST, Monday through Friday. You can also email us by clicking here.
Are the products you are selling still fresh or just ones you need to get rid of because the store is closing? Our shipping practices will not change between now and the closing of the store. We do not sell products that are expired or near the end of their shelf life. Our products will continue to be sent with a guaranteed 30 days before expiration when they arrive to you.
What happens to the inventory that isn’t sold before the store closes? Will you be donating those? Our remaining inventory will be donated to area food shelves, including some that were directly impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
With Gluten Freely going away, is General Mills still committed to gluten-free community? How will you still continue to support the gluten-free community? As a company, we remain committed to the gluten-free community by continuing to offer more than 300 gluten-free products from General Mills as well as future innovations that are great tasting, affordable and easy to prepare. These items can be found across the country in grocery and super stores. While Gluten Freely’s store is closing, you will still find great gluten-free recipes and content on General Mills’ other sites: BettyCrocker.com and LiveBetterAmerica.com.
