Country Fair opened its first store in 1965 in Erie, PA, to sell locally owned Meadow Brook Dairy Milk. This store offered the local community a new way to purchase milk when home milk deliveries were declining, and large grocery stores were emerging. A lot has changed between then and now, but we still believe whole-heartedly in offering the very best local brands. Not only does it allow us to provide the freshest products, but by supporting independent, locally owned businesses over large national brands, Country Fair guarantees that a more significant portion of the money is cycled back through our local economy. And that action ultimately strengthens the base of our entire community. And that, my friends, is what they call a no-brainer.
