State Liquor Agency Opens at Buehler’s Wooster Milltown Location

Today marks the official opening of the State Liquor Agency, inside Buehler’s Fresh Foods Wooster Milltown supermarket at 3540 Burbank Road, Wooster, Ohio. This completes the transfer and relocation agreement of Gary’s Liquor Agency, which Buehler’s purchased in October of 2013.

 

Dan Shanahan, President and COO of Buehler’s Fresh Foods stated, “With the highly successful opening of our Ashland State Liquor Agency in April, this move continues the establishment of Ohio Liquor Agencies inside Buehler’s supermarkets, and completes another phase of our Wooster Milltown remodel.”

Ron James, Buehler’s Director of Beer, Wine and Liquor added, “We are proud to offer our customers the convenience of one-stop shopping, and have strived to respect customers’ considerations by keeping this a store within a store, with its own doorway and register for payment.”

Buehler’s has a strong beer and wine offering, with over 500 beers and 1,000 wines available daily. There is a 10% discount on wine case purchases, and liquor agency customers may use their credit or debit cards. Wooster Liquor Agency customer service and convenience is enhanced with newly expanded hours, Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sundays.

“We would like to thank the Ohio Division of Liquor Control for their assistance to complete the transfer and relocation of the liquor agency. We would also like to extend a special thank you to the Wooster community for their patience during the process,” added Jack Kerby, Buehler’s Wooster Milltown Store Manager.

Buehler’s, founded in 1929, is celebrating eighty-five years as an independent, family owned and operated grocer. Buehler’s is recognized as a pacesetter in the industry, and is positioned for growth as a trusted business partner.

Buehler’s Fresh Foods hosting Community Compost Forum to Network a Community Collection Route

Buehler’s Fresh Foods hosting Community Compost Forum to Network a Community Collection Route 

Buehler’s Fresh Foods is hosting a Community Compost Forum on Friday, June 20, 2014 at the Wayne County Public Library from 9:45 a.m. until noon. This is a free event and open to area Wayne County businesses as a unique opportunity to learn the benefits of a food scrap network collection route by collaborating with local and state agencies.

Buehler’s has gathered the Ohio Grocers Foundation (OGA), Viridiun, Paradise Composting, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA), and Resource100 to work towards a goal of bringing awareness to food scrap generators and to build a collection program.

These agencies have been working over the past few years to encourage businesses to divert food scraps from landfills by utilizing composting facilities. The obvious benefit from recycling food scraps is environmental, but there is also an expectation that businesses can save money by reducing their disposal costs. The objective is to implement a managed supply chain concept by which food scraps generators (such as grocers, restaurants, schools, and hospitals) can form a network for route density cost-effective food scrap diversion from landfills.

“We currently partner with Republic Waste to transport our food and floral scraps to Paradise Composting for disposal and processing, and in-turn, produce our own Buehler Bagged Compost for resale,” stated Becky Foster, Buehler’s Vice President Construction and Maintenance. “If we can expand to generate community participation and obtain a route density, it will improve the economics of food scrap collection, divert organic waste from landfills, and reduce trash bills.”
