Price Rite Marketplace Celebrates Team Members on Supermarket Employee Day
In recognition of the first-ever Supermarket Employee Day, Price Rite Marketplace honored the incredible work of its team members with special recognition for all they do to improve lives and communities day in and day out.
“I could not be more proud of how our team rallied to provide essential items to families who counted on us to during the height of the pandemic,” said Jim Dorey, president of Price Rite Marketplace. “When the crisis hit early last year our stores stayed open, our shelves remained stocked, and associates went above and beyond to care for our customers to help them through an extraordinarily difficult time.”
As part of the celebrations, Price Rite Marketplace executives worked alongside associates, breakrooms were decorated in festive colors and themes, and fun activities took place throughout the day. Additionally, and one Price Rite associate received the “Team Member of the Year” award for efforts on behalf of the company.
Supermarket Employee Day is an initiative of FMI (The Food Industry Association), as a time for the food industry to recognize employees at every level for the work they do feeding families and enriching lives. The day helps celebrate the fact that the food and grocery industry is a critical cornerstone of our society’s infrastructure.
