Grocery Store Cards

Monthly grocery store cards available for online ordering!

Program Basics

Cary Academy offers our families and friends the opportunity to purchase grocery store cards for your monthly grocery shopping needs from Harris Teeter, Whole Foods and Lowes Foods. Cost is face value of the card and Cary Academy makes a profit of 3% from Whole Foods and 6% from Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods on each card sold.

Cards will be sold at the end of each month (unless otherwise stipulated like school breaks or holidays.) A reminder will be included in the CA Weekly (parent weekly email newsletter) that online ordering is open. A link to the form will be provided to submit your family order and designate a pick-up location. Also the link will be housed on the front page of the CA website when the link is activated for orders. Pick up locations include MS office, US office or Advancement office. To pick up in the school offices, payment must have been received by the Advancement office, as no money will be exchanged in the MS or US offices. If you are delayed making your payment, you are welcome to bring a check in when you pick up your card in Advancement.

You will receive an email from Dorrys McArdle three to four days after the combined school order is placed to let you know your cards have arrived and are ready for pick up. Your designated pick-up location will be listed as a reminder.

Online Ordering

All orders are now taken online only. There are two separate forms for placing orders, depending on your payment mode - credit card OR cash/check/payroll deduction (CA employees only). Cary Academy always prefer checks, cash or payroll deduction to avoid a transaction fee, however, we do accept credit cards as payment (for Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods only, not Whole Foods.)

Look for the reminder in the CA Weekly, announcing grocery store cards (GSC) are available to purchase each month towards the last week in the month. Then take advantage of this opportunity to give back to the school while doing your regular grocery shopping.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Dorrys McArdle at 919-228-4542 or
