Harvest Supermarket undergoing massive renovations

GREENSBURG – Harvest Supermarket, formerly known as Ranch Supermarket, has been a fixture in the Greensburg community for several decades.

When customers walk into Harvest Supermarket, it is almost as if being transported back into a time before massive shopping centers and megastores, back to a time when personal service meant something. Pieces of antique memorabilia line the walls of the grocery store and staff members are always on hand to assist patrons with their needs.

Soon, however, some of that will change.

Harvest will be receiving an extensive face-lift, both inside and out during, a series of renovations that will last between three and four weeks, according to Harvest Supermarket Manager John Hunt.

Hunt has been overseeing operations at Harvest for the last 20 years. The store will have a new look, but the quality service and products will remain the same, he said.

Hunt reported that the supermarket will be getting new ceiling tiles, flooring and shelving. In addition, the store will be painted inside and outside and the parking lot will be repaired and resurfaced. The entrance and exit doors, meat, frozen food and produce cases will be replaced as well.

Hunt said Harvest will not have any closures while the work is being completed. Workers will be doing everything possible to finish jobs without inconveniencing customers more than necessary. Remodeling began a week ago, Hunt said, and should be completed in four weeks or less.

When asked what prompted the extensive renovations, Hunt said it was just time to update and give the store a more modern feel.

Harvest patrons who have developed a fondness for the current old-time supermarket feel of Harvest should take the opportunity to take a final stroll through the store before the major changes take place. The personal, hands-on service and attention will continue, though the look of the store will be drastically different.
