Gordy’s is back and here to stay! It was a rough 2017 for the company, which culminated in a reduction from 26 stores to 6 (Barron, Chetek, Cornell, Lake Wissota, Chippewa Falls, and Ladysmith). With the help of our loyal customers and this great community, we persevered and are coming back stronger than ever. 

We have had some recent exciting changes here at Gordy’s. The first of these is a change in the starting wage for the company. Now, the minimum starting pay for the company is $9.00/hour, with many of our more specialized positions getting a starting wage well above this. It’s nice to be able to represent a company who values and invests in their employees.

Pump perks is coming back! In the next couple of months, the Pump perk program will again be launched across all Gordy’s locations. This will be especially impactful for our store as the gas station just across the front parking lot will be re-opening. This will provide an easy one stop shop for groceries and gas.

The most common question we get here at Gordy’s is “Do you have any snack sticks?” Everyone loves the Gordy’s Smoke House snack sticks, which haven’t been available for some time since the company smoke house closed down last year. That will soon change as a brand new smoke house has been built down at our Lake Wissota store. Very soon we will be again carrying the full array of Gordy’s smoked meat products, including the snack sticks that everybody raves about.

In an ever increasingly difficult economic situation, it’s always good news to be able to re-invest in our customers and stretch their dollar a little farther with some key price changes. That is exactly the situation here at Gordy’s! Over the past month and continuing for the foreseeable future, we have been dropping prices on key items across the store. From dairy/frozen to grocery, from meats to produce, your dollar will go farther here at Gordy’s.
