Sunbury, PA, 2016-Oct-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — Weis Markets today (October 5, 2016) announced plans to purchase the location and assets of Nell’s Family Market of East Berlin LLC in East Berlin, PA from C&S Wholesale Grocers. This purchase of the grocery store located at 30 Primrose Lane in East Berlin, Pa. will be completed at the end of October and an early November reopening is planned.
This store and pharmacy will remain open in the weeks prior to the finalization of the purchase in late October. As part of this transition, Weis Markets plans to interview current employees of the East Berlin store whom are interested in employment at Weis Markets.
“This is a great store, with an excellent reputation for customer service. This purchase will allow us to increase our market presence in Adams County,” said Kurt Schertle, Weis Markets’ Chief Operating Officer. “As part of this process, we’re interested in interviewing Nell’s associates for employment at our company since they’ve helped make this store successful. We look forward to talking to them.”
