Linn Thriftway – Linn Mo Grocery


We are always striving to improve. We have upgraded the cases in the Bakery, Deli, Frozen Food, Meat, and Produce departments. We have also installed a new drink counter, which is supplied with International Blends coffee, hot chocolate, cappuccino, iced tea, and Pepsi fountain drinks. We have a suggestion box in the front of the store and we appreciate any suggestions you give us.

New Cooler Cases

The month of January, 2013 brought several improvements at Thriftway. New cooler cases were installed in three departments. These cases will allow us to offer even more product and keep our product even cooler. The cases are located in the Smoked Meat Department, Dairy Department and Beer and Beverage Department. We hope you will be pleased with our improvements!

Osage County Food Service Training

Eleven Thriftway employees attended the Osage County Food Service Employee Training Class in March 2011, at the Osage County Administration Building in Linn. This class is designed to help food service employees at all levels understand their role and responsibilities in providing food to the public. Those attending the class were: Mike Turner, meat department, Kevin Ousley, grocery manager and assistant manager of Thriftway, Stacey Bonnot, meat department, Rae Jene Mantle, deli and bakery department, Becky Monroe, bakery manager, Bruce Bax, meat manager, Mike Troesser, produce manager, Mike Rackers, frozen, dairy and liquor manager and also assistant manager of Thriftway, and Debby Jaegers, deli manager. Also attending the class but not pictured are Jean Marie Shoults, deli department and checker and David Abernathy, produce department.

There are many important rules governing the handling of food and it is immensely important to all of us at Thriftway that we continue to handle our products safely. Several years ago, Bruce Bax, Debby Jaegers, Nancy Ketcherside and Jean Shoults received ServSafe Certificates for successfully completing a class which set forth standards by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation for the ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification Examination, which is recognized by the Conference for Food Protection. It is of upmost importance to us at Thriftway to do our very best, in every way possible, to take excellent care of you, our valued customers!
