The Market at Woodloch Celebrates New Honor and Gives Back to Community
Recently designated a Boar’s Head Market of Distinction, The Market at Woodloch held an event to celebrate and collect donations for the local fire and ambulance departments.
Hawley, PA, June 6, 2017 – Boar’s Head Brand has recognized the upscale convenience store and gas station, The Market at Woodloch, as one of the most notable purveyors of premium delicatessen meats and cheeses and has named the retailer a Market of Distinction. A Boar’s Head Market of Distinction status is awarded to independent retailers that promote the highest standards of quality and exceptional customer service. Only 32 businesses across the country have received this designation.
On Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29, 2017, The Market at Woodloch and Boar’s Head/Tom Butler Provisions teamed up for a celebratory event to express its gratitude to the local community. The celebration featured complimentary Boar’s Head samples and raffle prizes as well as a Boar’s Head hot dog cart where patrons could purchase hot dogs, chips and soda for $1 each and make additional donations to the area’s local fire and ambulance departments.
There was great support from the local area, and many loyal and first-time customers came out to support the cause. Over $500 was raised, and Woodloch Resort contributed another $250, bringing the grand total to $750, an amount that was equally distributed among Forrest Volunteer Fire Department, Central Volunteer Fire Department, and Lackawaxen Ambulance Bohemia Station. These donations were given as a token of appreciation to those who are committed to making the community a safer place.
“We are humbled to receive this honor. My parents, Harry and Mary Kiesendahl, originally opened Woodloch in 1958 as a small boarding house. Today, the property encompasses a family resort, golf course community, destination spa, and multiple restaurants in addition to this beautiful convenience market and gas station,” says C.E.O. and Owner John Kiesendahl. “We are thrilled to provide the local community with a convenient shopping option close to home.”
Opened in 2014, the 6,000 square foot storefront is located along Route 590, just two miles down the road from the main resort property, Woodloch Pines. The Market at Woodloch offers a plethora of gourmet selections including: homemade bread, cakes and pastries from the esteemed Woodloch Bakery, a Boar’s Head deli, daily prepared hot and cold foods, premium wines, beers, and liquors, and local organic produce and dairy.
