CONGRATULATIONS to Grocery Out let Bargain Market , our February
2021 Business of the Month. Owners Tom & Angie Criss, their son
Brandon and over 25 employees continue to provide excellent service
to the Myrtle Creek~Tri City Area and all South Douglas County
Several Chamber officers participated in the Grand Opening of their
new store on June 27th,2019. During most of 2020 and continuing into
2021 the store has provided non-stop COVID-19 essential services to
their customers, local businesses and food pantries. Tom & Angie
attend most of our Chamber meetings and support many community
events. They entered a first-time float in the 2020 D.R. Johnson
Memorial Timber Truckers Light Parade and won $150.00 cash in their
category which they donated back to the non-profit event organizers.
While summer events are still tentative because of uncertainties
about COVID-19 Tom & Angie want to host a second annual
Independence from Hunger event in July with a goal of raising
$30,000.00 to be converted to food to be donated. They?re also
thinking about starting a food bank for pets and maybe, just
maybe, having Tom ?camp out?of top a 53?trailer until it?s filled
with non-perishable donations.
Tom & Angie also serve as ambassadors for Grocery Outlet
Bargain Markets. During a recent trip to Pennsylvania they were
informed about the Grand Opening of a new store in East
Norriton and checked in to participate and support the owners as
seen in the photo.
