We are happy to announce our two Outstanding Customer Service winners for 2016, Lori Williams and Doug Fitz. Both winners were selected by nomination at their store, then the Associate Council and the Office Management.

Lori Williams (pictured above center) works at the New Philadelphia location in the Service Center and as a Cashier. Lori receives numerous compliments from the many customers she has helped. She has assisted elderly customers in their shopping, and driven groceries to a customer’s home who had forgotten them at the store. Her coworkers say she doesn’t know any other way but to be helpful. 

Doug Fitz (pictured 2nd from left) is a long time Buehler’s employee and works Center Store at Medina Forest Meadows. Doug is always willing to go out of his way to serve the customer; from special orders to driving groceries to their homes. Doug also realizes that his coworkers are also customers and does his best every day to make Forest Meadows a great place to work. Doug is always ready with a big smile and positive attitude.

Please congratulate each winner for their efforts to make Buehler’s the #1 Customer Service store in Ohio!

Buehler’s Fresh Foods has signed an agreement with North Court Beverage to purchase the beer, wine, and spirits business located at 998 N. Court St., Medina OH.

Dan Shanahan, President and Chief Operating Officer of Buehler’s stated, “the transfer of the liquor agency is still pending with the Ohio Division of Liquor Control. After the agency transfer is complete, North Court Beverage will remain open for business and continue to operate as usual.”

This will bring two Medina Liquor Agencies under Buehler management. In the Fall of 2015, Buehler’s purchased the Wine Reserve of Medina and has transferred the Liquor Agency to the Buehler’s River Styx location at 3626 Medina Rd., Medina, OH.  The plan is for North Court Beverage to remain at its current location.
