“Our employees continue to work diligently to ensure their communities have access to the food and household supplies they need. Their continued commitment to the communities they serve is what keeps Superior going. We will continue to extend the temporary pay rate increase to May 31, 2020. We will also continue to provide our employees with weekly lunches until June 28, 2020,” said Richard Wardwell, president.
