(Victor Valley)– This Memorial Day, all Stater Bros. stores across the entire chain will participate in an act of “National Moment of Remembrance” to honor the courageous Americans who have sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we all enjoy.
The Annual National Moment of Remembrance was formally established by an Act of Congress in 2000 and encourages all Americans wherever they are to pause at 3:00 p.m. local time to honor those who died in service to the United States.
At exactly 3:00 p.m. on Monday, May 27th, all Stater Bros. Store Managers will make an announcement requesting all customers and employees who are inside the store at that time to pause and remember those who have fallen while serving the United States.
“Stater Bros. is proud to honor and remember the valiant men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation,” stated Stater Bros. CEO Pete Van Helden.
Stater Bros. Markets was founded in 1936 in Yucaipa, California, and has grown steadily through the years to become the largest privately owned supermarket chain in Southern California. The Company currently operates 172 supermarkets, and there are approximately 17,000 members of the Stater Bros. Supermarket Family. Since 2008, Stater Bros. Markets and Stater Bros. Charities have contributed more than $80 million in food and funds to local Southern California communities. For more information, visit www.staterbros.com.
