In 1941 Mehuron’s Market began under the direction of Elmer Mehuron. As a Vermont country store on Bridge Street in Waitsfield, Mehuron’s was a center of local commerce. The little market served many purposes, from a place to buy meats & groceries to having your animal slaughtered & a place to get your ammunition. Just your traditional country store, we carried a little bit of everything. We moved to our present location in 1968. Now under the ownership of Elmer’s son, Allen Mehuron, we changed from a country store to a small supermarket. Tom Mehuron, the son of Allen, took over the family business in 1986. He expanded the store to its present size in 1989. Tom focuses on bringing the highest quality food & old fashioned service to the Mad River Valley.
The Mehuron’s Difference
Typically, supermarkets employ mostly part time workers. Usually, part time workers account for 75% of the employees.
The industry averages only 1.4% profit on net sales so labor is scheduled to fit peak sales time. That is good for the supermarket’s profitability but not necessarily good for the employee trying to make a living from one job or for the procurement of benefits such as health insurance. Mehuron’s staff is over 50% full time and qualify for health insurance coverage which is over 95% paid for by the market. We honor a self-imposed $15 minimum wage for our employees. If we do not have a product you want, we will try to get it. Once in a while we can’t but we will certainly try, and most of the time we will get it.
