Usually, while I'm showing new-to-the-area buyers property, they start opening up with questions: schools?, medical facilities, hospitals, etc. And then there's the shopping interest. "Do you have grocery stores up here or do you have to go down the mountain?"
In fact, we have almost every kind of store you need on our mountain. Maybe we don't have the big warehouse stores, but they're only 20 miles away IF you shop for bulk items. For your normal weekly grocery shopping, we have all we need right here. I do most of my grocery shopping at Lake Arrowhead Village at STATER BROS. Our store has a Deli, meat department and bakery, but no pharmacy, as of yet.
Stater Bros. began way back as a little grocery store on West Yucaipa Boulevard in Yucaipa, California. Twin brothers, Cleo and Leo Stater, purchased the original Stater Bros. Market with a $600 down payment and opened for business on August 17, 1936.
By the late 40's, Cleo and Leo, was joined by their younger brother Lavoy, expanded the chain to 12 locations, with 225 employees.
In the 1950's, Stater Bros. Markets doubled to include 23 locations in the three counties of San Bernardino, Riverside and Los Angeles. The Bros sold their interest in 1968, and it became a division of Petrolane Incorporated.
Today, Stater Bros has grown to the largest privately owned Supermarket Chain in SOCAL with 165 Full Service Supermarkets in the six Southern California counties of San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, Los Angeles, San Diego and Kern.
