Cotati-based grocer Oliver’s Market was honored Monday, Feb. 13, as the 2016 Progressive Grocer Outstanding Independent in the Multi-Store category during the National Grocers Association convention in Las Vegas.
Candidates for the awards were nominated by industry associations, suppliers and wholesalers, as well as via editorial recommendations. The dozens of nominees from the field of more than 21,000 independent grocery stores in the United States were slotted into 10 categories this year, and will be featured in February 2017 issue of Progressive Grocer magazine. Oliver’s earned the award.
“We are truly honored to receive this national recognition of Oliver’s Market by Progressive Grocer,” said Oliver’s Market owner and founder Steve Maass. “Our team has worked over the years to provide customers with a shopping experience they would enjoy, while remaining locally focused and independently owned. It is gratifying to see that our way of doing business and our commitment to customer choice is valued by our industry.”
