Price Cutter - "Shop Smart. Live Well."
In 1919, after returning from World War One, John Ramey bought a small grocery store in Springfield, Missouri. After his neighborhood store found success, John expanded his business to eight stores but in 1939 decided to consolidate them into the area's first modern supermarket, outside of the town. The business had a couple of owners between 1946 and 2005, when an Employee Stock Ownership Plan became effective. The Employee Stock Ownership Plan acquired 100% of the company's stock, allowing staff to share in both the risks and rewards of capital ownership and giving them a vested interest in the growth and success of the company. Today, Price Cutter's parent company, RPCS, Inc., operates 47 retail grocery stores. The company is also active in the community and sponsors a wide range of charities and sports teams and events, including the Springfield Cardinals and the American Cancer Society Southwest Missouri Cattle Baron's Ball.
