Our beloved founder and namesake Ken Giles celebrated his 90th birthday on Monday May 11th. Ken started Ken’s Market in 1955 (originally called Ken’s IGA) you can find out more about Ken’s story on our history timeline. Most days pre-covid you could find Ken sitting in the store enjoying a cup of coffee and a bowl of mush (oatmeal) chatting with customers. To celebrate Ken’s big Birthday family employees and friends gathered for a social distancing celebration for this neighborhood celebrity, small business founder, father and grandfather. This may not be the celebration we envisioned or that Ken truly deserves but Covid can’t cancel the appreciation we have for our founder Ken Giles!
