MANCHESTER CENTER, Vt., May 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunday, May 15 is the last day until October to order sweet, salty and creamy treats from The Vermont Country Store. Chose from favorites like vanilla cream drops and some of the best sugar-free chocolates you'll ever taste, or the Maple Smoked Vermont Cheddar, voted "Best Smoked Cheese in North America" by the American Cheese Society.

Two weeks is enough time to not only get items for those graduation parties, wine and cheese parties, and Fourth of July barbecues, but to even get a last-minute gift for one of the most important people in your life – Mom. There are classics such as dark chocolate espresso beans or new items like the chocolate-covered dried strawberries – surely something for every mother in your life.

Bill Ackerman, Head of Retail for The Vermont Country Store, urges customers to order quickly. He said, "There is always a big rush at the end, but we have a greater selection than ever before. Shop as early as you can to get something perfect for this busy party time of year."

All of these items and more can be found in The Vermont Country Store's catalogue, on the website ( www.VermontCountryStore.com ), or at both retail locations (Weston and Rockingham, VT).  But May 15 is the last day to order until October.

About The Vermont Country Store

In 1946, Vrest and Ellen Orton printed their first catalogue—just 12 pages and 36 products—and mailed it to the folks on their Christmas card list. Sixty years later and promoting itself as Purveyors of The Practical and Hard to Find, The Vermont Country Store has become "Nostalgia Central" and continues its catalogue business, manages a thriving e-commerce Web site and operates two retail stores in Weston and Rockingham, Vermont.
