Grocery store founder honored


Western Wisconsin (WQOW) - A man with a very recognizable name in our area is being singled out for his work.

Gordy Schafer, the founder of Gordy's County Market, was given the Excellence in Operations award by the Wisconsin Grocers Association.  "I may have been the founder and have been for 47-plus years, but with four of my children involved in the business, and a lot of great store managers, and then a lot of other great people that are a part of the business, they make it happen," said Schafer.

Gordy's County Market recently opened its 10th store.
