A grocery store with history throughout Northeastern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula has been chosen as the “Best of Door County” in the supermarket category. Econofoods in Sturgeon Bay won the distinction in a recent poll on DoorCountyDailyNews.com. Store Manager Jon Calhoun cites his loyal staff and product selection as two keys in winning the award.
Calhoun also credits Econofoods owner and founder Jim Tadych who started in the grocery business 50 years ago by opening a T & C Markets in Brillion. The first Sturgeon Bay location was opened in 1981 as the first warehouse-style store in the area.
