Fareway’s policy of being closed on Sunday has been in place for as long as the company has been in existence. They believe their customers, employees, and business partners deserve a day at home with their families – free from the fast-paced life we all live the other six days of the week. The idea of resting on Sunday is something the company’s founder, Paul S. Beckwith, firmly believed. This was in part because of his religious beliefs and a story told to him by his father. Paul’s father was a pioneer who traveled to new territory by wagon train. Some pioneers were in a hurry, and drove on every day, leaving behind those who stopped for a day of rest and worship. As settlers continued to move westward, families who had taken Sunday off began to catch up with those who had pushed ahead, finding broken-down wagons, lame animals, and weary people. Paul’s father told him he decided that the Bible was right: neither man nor beast was made to work seven days a week.

Fareway has been a great addition to the community and Mike says we have a very strong and loyal customer base here in Harrisburg and the surrounding areas. Every week the store has a new ad highlighting new weekly specials. Weekly ads run from Wednesday through Tuesday. During the month of October, Fareway is running a special Deal of the Day on Wednesdays: $5.00 off any 10lb roll of regular ground beef at the meat counter. Be sure to mention the Deal of the Day ad below found on our Facebook page.
