LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Posted September 21, 2022
I felt the need to write about this subject for quite a while now.
I truly feel we live in one of the best communities that there is. Whether it's due to great neighbors, supportive individuals in the community, great jobs, or the plethora of quality locally owned businesses, we live in a great Community.
And it’s one of those quality businesses that I have to talk about, because they do not get the amount of recognition that they deserve.
Our local Save-A-Lot is hands down one of the best resources we have in our awesome Community. If you are a patron of the store, you can see how great the store is as far as quality of the items sold, cleanliness in general of the inside and outside of the property, the friendliness of the staff, great pricing, and the list goes on and on.
But what I don’t think that most people know is how supportive to the community they are. The Kenney Fire Department has been doing an annual Chicken Fry every year for the past 40+ years. We found ourselves in a major dilemma a few years back when the Pandemic hit. Most of the items we got from all over the Community were out of stock with no possible way of getting in time. Many hours of brainstorming and lost sleep happened… until we reached out to Save-A-Lot.
They somehow got us EVERYTHING that we needed, and at a generous price. Since then, they have been nothing short of amazing to us in helping get the needed items and showing their continued support.
Both Dave Jackson and Jon Groves came to us this year during set-up and cooking to make sure everything was up to our standards, and of course it was.
Their generosity and support mean everything to us and we are truly grateful for them and the amazing business Dave runs.
There are so many great businesses in our Community who show their support to Non-Profit organizations like Kenney Fire Department, and we are truly blessed to live where we do.
Of these great businesses, Save-A-Lot is second to none. Keep running a great business, WE APPRECIATE YOU!!!
