San Bernardino, California (May 21, 2020) – This Memorial Day, all 169 Stater Bros. Markets locations will participate in the National Moment of Remembrance to remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
The National Moment of Remembrance, which was established by an Act of Congress in 2000, designates 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day each year as the National Moment of Remembrance, in honor of the men and women of the United States who died in the pursuit of freedom and peace.
At exactly 3:00 p.m. on Monday, May 25th, every Stater Bros. Markets Store Manager will ask all customers and employees to pause for a one minute moment of silence in an act of national unity to honor and remember our fallen heroes.
“Stater Bros. Markets is proud to honor and remember the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation,” stated Stater Bros. CEO Pete Van Helden.
