SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On Memorial Day this year, all 167 Stater Bros. Supermarkets will participate in the "National Moment of Remembrance." At exactly 3:00 p.m. on Monday, May 26th, every Stater Bros. Store Manager will make an announcement asking all the customers and employees who are inside the supermarket at that time to pause for 60 seconds to honor those Americans who have died for the freedoms we all enjoy.
The Annual National Moment of Remembrance was initiated by No Greater Love Organization in 1997 and formally established by an Act of Congress in 2000. The National Moment of Remembrance Act designates 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day each year as the National Moment of Remembrance, in honor of the men and women of the United States who died in the pursuit of freedom and peace.
"Memorial Day was originally established to commemorate America's fallen men and women," stated Jack H. Brown, Chairman and CEO of Stater Bros. and a Navy Veteran. "Stater Bros. would like to do our part to remind our customers and employees that this is still a sacred and noble holiday and a time when we can all connect as Americans. Honoring those who defend our nation is part of our company tradition, as the Founders of Stater Bros., Cleo, Leo and Lavoy Stater, all served in World War II."
Stater Bros. was founded in 1936 in Yucaipa, California, and has grown steadily through the years to become the largest privately owned Supermarket Chain in Southern California and the largest private employer in both San Bernardino County and Riverside County. The Company currently operates 167 Supermarkets, and there are approximately 18,000 members of the Stater Bros. Supermarket Family. Stater Bros. was recently rated the "Best Full Service Supermarket Chain in Southern California" by a leading national consumer magazine.
