Redner’s Markets, Inc., is commemorating its 40th anniversary this month with a series of promotions for customers that have loyally supported the regional retailer’s warehouse markets, convenience stores and pharmacies through the years. Having grown to become Pennsylvania’s largest employee- and family-owned grocer, the Reading, Pa.-based company will give customers a chance to win $100 gift cards, which will be randomly awarded to 400 entrants throughout the month of March. Entry forms will be issued on each receipt received and also upon request at the office of each store.
From a historical perspective, company founders Earl and Mary Redner placed their savings and faith into Earl’s dream of opening his own grocery store on March 1, 1970. Forty years and 53 stores later, Earl’s purchase of two failing stores has blossomed into the fulfillment of his ambition to operate a successful family-, employee- and locally owned company. Helmed today by a third generation of Redner family members -- including Earl’s son, president/CEO Richard, and grandchildren Ryan, the company’s COO, and Gary, its EVP/procurement, “The Chief” (as Earl is known by Redner’s employee-owners) is proud of the legacy he has established as a thriving independent grocer, instilling pride in ownership, commitment to community, and dedication to customer satisfaction.
“What my father and mother began in 1970 was a huge venture, and they put their life savings into my father’s dream of independent ownership,” notes Richard Redner. “To be where we are today, as a successful, employee-owned and independent company, says a lot to his vision in 1970 and continued leadership. We have made it 40 years in a tough business and were only able to do so through dedicated employees, disciplined buying operations and taking care of our customers. Without our customers, we would not be here, and in celebration of our 40th… we felt it was necessary to give back to them with some special 40th anniversary deals and the chance to win a $100 gift card.”
Additionally, Redner’s, which operates 38 Warehouse Markets and 13 Quick Shoppes throughout eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware, is committed to supporting the community in which each of its stores are located through a variety of supportive partnerships and enrichment programs.
