United Supermarkets Donates $108K To North Texas Make-A-Wish


United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos employees gathered April 21 with representatives from Make-A-Wish North Texas to present the organization with a check for $108,300.03. 

This presentation is the culmination of a donate-at-the-register campaign that ran in The United Family stores across the state of Texas. During the campaign, guests were able to add any dollar amount to their grocery bill at checkout.  

As an organization, Make-A-Wish provides once-in-a-lifetime experiences for children dealing with critical illnesses. Make-A-Wish believes that these experiences can be game changers for not only ill children, but also for parents and other family members.  

“We are so proud to be in a position where we can partner with an organization like Make-A-Wish  North Texas,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family. “We know that these funds will  further support their mission of helping children with critical illnesses have once-in-a-lifetime experiences with their families. We are so proud to be a small part of that mission.” 

In its 106th year of operation, United Supermarkets – also known as The United Family – is a grocery chain with stores in 54 communities in Texas and New Mexico. A self-distributing company with headquarters and distribution centers in Lubbock, Texas, the company operates 96 stores under five banners: United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, Albertsons Market and United Express, along with ancillary operations R.C. Taylor Distributing, USM Manufacturing, United Food and Beverage Services and Llano Logistics.

The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Albertsons Companies Inc.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
