“I attended school and raised my family in the Big Bear area. Every bit of this community and this store means a lot to me,” said Rick Jaeger, Store Manager.  “We’re a tight-knit community and I’m sure locals and visitors will be excited with the wall-to-floor renovations we’ve made to enhance their shopping experience,” Jaeger added.


Additionally, in the spirit of honoring Stater Bros. Markets longtime tradition of not just doing business in the community, but being part of the community, Stater Bros. Charities will present a donation totaling $2,500 to the Big Bear Valley Education Trust.
