Buehler’s Fresh Foods, Wooster, Ohio, is giving customers at its Wooster Milltown store a chance to become part of the store’s history while it is being remodeled.

The chain is inviting customers to sign a structural steel I-beam that will become part of the front entrance architecture, with the signatures exposed for everyone to see, the company said.

Customers will be able to sign the beam on Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. “or until the beam is filled with signatures,” the company said.

Buehler’s is also offering a “Handprints in History” promotion where 10 children involved with the chain’s KidzPark — a secure in-store area where shoppers can leave their children while they shop — will be randomly selected to make an impression of their hands as part of the stone foundation of the store’s front entrance.

“These may be the most exciting promotions we’ve done in years, as our customers will be part of the remodeling process. They will be able to brag a little for years to come when they see their name or their handprint every time they shop," said store manager Jack Kerby.

Buehler’s said it has already completed most of the remodeling, with expanded perishables departments that use more energy-efficient cooling units; a rearrangement of some departments; and a drive-through pharmacy.
