Weis Markets recently held a grand opening of its new store in Bedminster Township, Pennsylvania. The 61,323-s.f. supermarket is the company’s eighth location in the Delaware Valley and second in Bucks County.
The store employs more than 150 full- and part-time associates and features a beer-wine café, a full-service pharmacy and a fuel center. It also includes an expansive produce department with a wide selection of organic produce; a full-service seafood department with sustainably caught seafood; a full-service meat department with on-premise, custom-cut Certified Angus beef; a deli offering a wide selection of meals to go including a hot foods bar, salad bar and sushi prepared in-store daily; and eight advanced self-scan checkout lanes.
“We are pleased to expand our services in Bucks County and the Delaware Valley to offer our new customers a strong combination of convenience, quality and low prices that help them live better and spend less,” said Jonathan Weis, chairman and CEO for Weis Markets. “We appreciate the welcome we’ve received and look forward to serving and becoming active members of the Bedminster-Dublin-Perkasie community.”
To mark the opening and thank the community for its warm welcome, Weis Markets donated to Philabundance in support of local food pantries and hunger programs. It made additional charitable donations to the Pennridge Music Association, Army National Guard Headquarters and Headquarters Co. of the 55th Brigade Support Battalion Family Readiness Group, Dublin Borough Police Department, Dublin Volunteer Fire Co., Pennridge Regional Police Department and Deep Run Valley Sports Association.
The donations are part of a year-round giving program, which includes campaigns to support local community hunger organizations, pet shelters and veterans’ organizations, among many other local nonprofits.
As part of its 12th annual Fight Hunger campaign, Weis Markets and its associates raised more than $343,000 for more than 150 community hunger relief organizations in the communities it serves.
“We are proud of our customers and associates for collaborating to fight hunger in the communities we serve,” said Ron Bonacci, Weis Markets’ VP of advertising and marketing. “Over the past 12 years, our customers have responded to the issue of food insecurity in their communities with tremendous generosity, donating nearly $3 million. We remain committed to fighting hunger year-round in partnership with local hunger relief organizations and will continue to complement our customers’ generosity with donations of our own.”
