Eataly is reaching out to locals once again with a series of discounts and other special programming that began last week, after a locals’ discount was abruptly canceled in February.
Through the end of the year, anyone with a Nevada ID will receive 10 percent off all retail purchases. While this offer doesn’t apply to menu items prepared to be eaten onsite, it does include fresh and dry pasta, olive oil, fresh seafood, cured meats, cheese and pre-packaged snacks purchased to go.
Local industry groups are also being courted with discounts on Chef’s Table classes and dinners. Those who qualify can schedule a class such as pasta making, a wine tasting or a meal prepared in front of you and receive a 10 percent discount per person.
On top of that, Eataly will offer Nevada residents 20 percent discounts on specific items from Monday through Thursday throughout the spring and summer. Mondays are dedicated to specific producers of extra virgin olive oil. On Tuesdays, Chef’s Table classes will be 20 percent off. On Wednesdays, the discount will apply to all bottled wines. And Thursdays are Local Shopping Day, with a rotating selection of meat, fish, salumi, cheese and fresh pasta appearing in the discount counter of the Cucina del Mercato.
Additional single-day promotions are expected to be offered throughout the year.
Eataly has had a rocky history when it comes to recognizing locals. In February, the marketplace told the Review-Journal that locals would receive 20 percent off at select stalls through the end of that month, only to discontinue that offer, without warning, within a week.
When asked about that instance, a Park MGM spokeswoman said, in part, “As we grow and evolve, we are constantly working to create new offers and experiences.”
