Deloitte and The Wall Street Journal recently named Quonset Point company Ocean State Job Lot (OSJL) a 2021 “US Best Managed Company”. The award recognized OSJL’s executives for demonstrating excellence in strategic planning and execution, maintaining a strong financial position and commitment to their team, all while facing the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’m incredibly proud of our leadership team and the way we cared for our associates, supported our communities, and served our customers this past year,” said Marc Perlman, Co-founder and CEO, Ocean State Job Lot. “Being recognized as a US Best Managed Company is validation that we are guided by the right priorities: our people, our culture, our customers, extraordinary value and giving back. Thanks to the combined efforts of our dedicated associates and our generous customers, last year we were able to provide $25 million in financial and in-kind donations across 142 of the communities in which we have stores.”
