This has been a difficult time for our nation and our community. I am saddened by the recent events, which weigh heavily on all of us. It is heartbreaking. Racial bias of any kind is unacceptable, and we must take steps to eradicate it from our communities.
At Market of Choice, we stand with the Black Community. We believe Black Lives Matter. We support our Black Team Members, Customers and Vendors and do not tolerate racial bias, discrimination or injustice at our stores or in our communities.
Some of you have, no doubt, experienced injustices because of the color of your skin, the language you speak, the religion you practice or the people you love. For that, I am genuinely sorry.
Now is the time to write the final chapter of a dark history of systemic, nationwide problems and create a new story based on equality and civil rights. Our company is actively learning ways for us to take action. These steps will be in response to this historic movement, so we want to be intentional with our choices.
There is an urgency across the nation to do more. Our country can do better. Our state can do better. We will do better.
Rick Wright, CEO
