Redner’s Markets was founded in 1970 by Ed and Mary Redner. The couple opened two supermarkets in the Reading, Pennsylvania, area.
In 1975, the Redner’s created an employee stock ownership plan, making Redner’s the first employee-owned store in the state of Pennslyvania.
In October 1990, Earl Redner retired and sons Richard and Gary Redner took over management of the company.
The company also instituted a rewards program. For every 50 dollars spent the rewards customer will receive 5 cents off a gallon up to 20 gallons. If the customer chooses, they can also use the rewards for a grocery discount.
Redner’s now has 64 locations and stores are divided into Redner’s Warehouse Markets, Redner’s Fresh Market, and Redner’s Quick Shoppe.
Redner’s Markets Inc. announced in January 2022 that it will temporarily reinstate its pandemic wage increase of $1 an hour for all hourly front-line staff.
Redner’s Markets maintains a corporate office in Reading, Pennsylvania.
