The LARGEST Aquarium in Michigan feels that grocery store employees have been the forgotten heroes during the COVID-19 pandemic!

Healthcare workers, police, fire and EMS personnel are the first who come to mind when most people think of essential workers. However, Sea Life Aquarium at Great Lakes Crossing in Auburn Hills is taking time to recognize the essential workers who have worked to keep the supply chain steady during a time when they are needed most, often while working in stores packed with people. They felt the least they can do is offer the opportunity to enjoy a day at the aquarium!

According to MLive, “Sea Life Michigan Aquarium, Michigan’s largest aquarium, is offering complimentary admission for all grocery store workers on weekdays from Jan. 19th through Feb. 26th as a token of gratitude to the unsung men and women battling the coronavirus pandemic head on.”

The Grocery Store Hero Appreciation Days free one-day admission can only be redeemed online and is valid for weekday visits, Monday-Friday, using this link:

Sea Life Aquarium features hands-on exhibits, a 180-degree underwater ocean tunnel and more than 250 species including sharks, jellies, stingrays, and two rescued sea turtles!
