Charley Family To Host Kids Day At Their Local Shop ’n Save® Stores

Pittsburgh St., Route 66 and Murrysville Stores Come Together to Raise Money for Local Schools

PITTSBURGH, Pa. – May 19, 2015 –The Charley Family will celebrate their third annual Kids Day on Saturday, May 23, 2015 from 12 p.m to 2 p.m. All three Charley Family stores, Pittsburgh St., Route 66 and Murrysville, will be participating in Kids Day. The event boosts fun activities, including a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, food and other unique attractions that vary from store to store.

"My family and I are excited to celebrate Kids Day," said Tom Charley, SHOP ’n SAVE owner. "Going to a local school growing up, it made me appreciate the community, teachers and educators. We see students come through our store everyday with their parents, going along for the ride. We wanted to create an environment, if for only one day, that kids will remember for years. This event gets us excited because this isn't only about having fun at the stores, it's about supporting the people who help us to raise our children, the teachers in our communities."

For the third year the Charley Family hopes to make an impact on local education. At all three Charley Family stores, they will lead up to Kids Day by raising money at the registers. After the event, the Charley Family will match every dollar raised and donate the proceeds to local elementary schools.

"The Charley Family's dedication to their local communities is exactly what helps differentiates SHOP ’n SAVE in the grocery category," said Bob Holmes, area sales director for SUPERVALU, which supplies the independently owned and operated SHOP ’n SAVE stores. "Our independent owners' unwavering commitment to their customers, employees and neighbors is unmatched."
