Madison, Wisconsin-based Metcalfe’s Market locations in Hilldale (726 N. Midvale Boulevard, Madison), West Towne (7455 Mineral Point Road, Madison) and Wauwatosa (6700 W. State Street) are working to assist federal workers who are currently furloughed.

“We want to help federal workers in our communities affected by the government shutdown by offering them the same discount our employees enjoy every day—20 percent off,” said fourth-generation grocer and co-owner Tim Metcalfe. “Our company works with a ‘why’ in mind for everything we do and that is to connect and enrich people, our community and beyond. We believe helping those in need should be the responsibility of all members of our community, including businesses like ours.”

Federal employees can present their government-issued federal worker identification to the cashier when checking out at Metcalfe’s Hilldale, West Towne and Wauwatosa to receive 20 percent off their grocery order (excluding alcohol, tobacco, gift card and lottery purchases). This discount is valid on purchases up to $200 through Jan. 31 or until the government shutdown ends (whichever happens first). This discount is not valid at Metcalfe’s Dane County Regional Airport location or for online and delivery purchases.

Metcalfe’s Market is a fourth-generation, family-owned market with two locations in Madison and one in the Village in Wauwatosa.
