Business of the Week!

Congratulations to Goodsons' Supermarket of Oceana– The Wyoming County Business of the Week.

Goodsons' is a locally owned community supermarket.  They strive to be the best supermarket in the area with a hometown touch.  Their goals are to provide excellent customer service and great deals in all of their departments.  Their grocery department offers a variety of national name brands at great prices and an assortment of items that others just don't carry. 

Community members applaud them on the cleanliness of their store, store manager Ron's willingness to help the local organizations with donations, and their employees' friendliness.  They are a member of the Oceana Chamber of Commerce and are a supporter of the Oceana Heritage Festival.
