P.K. Hoover, longtime AWI member and second-generation owner of Kennie's Markets, with four locations in Gettysburg, Littlestown, and Spring Grove, Pa., and Taneytown, Md., seconds Michael's assessment of AWI's strengths.

"I really think the business model as an independent retailer-owned co-op has been instrumental to AWI's record of success," says Hoover.
...
"The greatest benefit of doing business with a co-op, rather than a publicly held company whose investors are looking for return, is the fact that there are no outside influences driving the corporate strategy," notes Hoover.While competing with the deep-pocketed, publicly traded firms isn't easy, he says, "I believe the balance weighs heavily in favor of AWI as a co-op."

"I can't begin to tell you how many people have thanked us for staying and investing in this community," said P.K. Hoover, the second-generation owner of Kennie's Market in Gettysburg (pop: 8,000).

A $250,000 grant and additional financing assistance from the FFFI helped Hoover fulfill a long-term goal of rebuilding the original Kennie's, which opened in 1948."It would have been a lot tougher without that," said Hoover.
At 32,000 square feet, the new store is more than 50 percent larger than the old store and has a modern layout and much more efficient coolers and equipment - all of which should help ensure that Kennie's continues to serve the town for another 60 years, said Hoover.
That's good news for residents.
