In celebration of African-American vendors and their entrepreneurial spirit, Jewel-Osco acknowledges Black History Month with the 11th Annual “A Taste of Black History”.
The contributions of three African-American entrepreneurs who help provide jobs through their role as vendors with Jewel-Osco will also be saluted during the opening reception:
“Jewel-Osco has always understood the value of developing minority vendors,” said Jim Seidler, Jewel-Osco ethnic category manager. ”We believe offering their products shows we understand our customers’ needs. In turn, we hope customers recognize that, by purchasing African-American vendor products, they are also supporting these outstanding men and women.”
“We are committed to developing and growing locally owned African-American businesses,” said Jewel-Osco President Keith Nielsen.
