The history of Sparkle Markets dates back to 1955, when four local independent grocers sought to achieve one common goal: provide customers with neighborly service and high-quality products at the lowest prices possible. And after merging with an Akron-area group of grocers, they achieved just that by opening the first neighborhood Sparkle. Throughout the years, this quaint collection of local grocery stores gave big chains a run for their money, remaining “big enough to serve its community, yet small enough to care.”
Today, there are 19 Sparkle Markets serving communities in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, all sharing the same original values of friendly service, quality products and low prices. Throughout the years, store ownership has been passed from father to son to daughter, ultimately maintaining the core principles of Sparkle Markets.
