Help Us Help Econofoods / Local Grocery Store - Somerset, WI

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We apologize for the initial way this petition of support came across in our initial posting and dissemination.  We are **not** trying to attack the store.  We support current management and are trying to help.

The Somerset Chamber of Commerce after being approached by many in the community, has drafted a letter to send to representatives of Spartan Nash, parent company of Econofoods (Store #3324), advocating for:

  • the store to receive updates / be remodeled or sold
  • price and product quality improvements
  • higher starting wages for employees so the store is better and more consistently staffed and trained
  • support for current and future management that is locally based

We are also asking that if the parent company is unable or unwilling to make these updates that they be willing to consider allowing the building to be sold to interested parties who are willing to make significant improvements to small town stores like ours; keeping the other current businesses in that development (Subway, Laundry mat, H&R Block, Somerset Pharmacy). We do not want this to adversely effect any of these businesses.

If you live in the Somerset, WI area (specifically the Town of Somerset, Village of Somerset, Town of Star Prairie, Town of St. Joseph's, or Town of New Richmond) please show your support for updating this VITAL community resource/business by adding your name to this petition.  In doing so, you are effectively stating that you support the request for Spartan Nash to address the above items, and furthermore, you are pledging to take steps to support this revitalization effort by spending more money at the store if said improvements are made (either by the current company or interested third parties).

Please feel free to leave **respectful** comments for us to share with the parent company and/or future store owners as they consider our request.

...and PLEASE SHARE with anyone you know in the community.

Thank You!
