Wyatt's Supervalu honored by Pendleton County Chamber of Commerce as "Business of the Month"

    The Pendleton County Chamber of Commerce is "Focused on the Future" as their logo says. They are dedicated to supporting the Pendleton County business community and have created a "Business of the Month" to highlight those businesses that share that view of investment in the community. Wyatt's Supervalu was selected for the month of October. Founded in 1945 by Abe Wyatt, father of the present owner, Dixie Owen, they are a key supporter of the community evidenced by the slew of thank you cards that adorns their customer service desk. "We are quite honored to be the chamber's first business of the month. Seventy-two years have been quite a long time and we work hard every day to be a vital part of the community. We presently employ approximately 40 local individuals and have employed thousands over the 72 years," said Wyatt's Store Manager Roger Craig.
