New owners of Wellsville and Cuba supermarkets want to make a difference
By Andrew Harris
When the Kusmierski family took over the reigns of Giant Food Mart in Wellsville and Cuba they started to invest heavily in the properties. Inside both stores you can see new additions and continuing upgrades, outside of the it is clear that the “new Giant” is also investing in the communities they serve.
As part of a recent system upgrade, Giant’s new software has a “round up” option that creates a huge opportunity to raise funds for community donations. In August, Giant cut a really big check to the SPCA Serving Allegany County. Nick Kusmierski explains the next effort which starts next month:
“October will be a round-up for Alzheimer’s Association. We have a family connections, as my grandmother (my Dad’s Mom) passed away after a battle with Alzheimer’s. It is a difficult disease for any family to deal with, so the opportunity to support a charity like this is easy. We actually had a vendor of ours approach us, as it is a charity that he supports and works with and he asked for our help. We were happy to work on a plan on how to support them. The cashier’s will be wearing t-shirts supporting the cause throughout the month. There will also be a contest amongst the cashiers for those who have the most “round-ups” throughout the month, they will be eligible to win some prizes. It is just great to see the community, the employees and everyone stepping up to support charities like this.”
Giant Food Mart in Wellsville and Cuba continue to improve and evolve into what Brian Kusmierski first described as, “a store that the community can be proud of.”
