It’s no secret both stores know a thing or two about partnering with local producers and ensuring they offer customers a gamut of locally and regionally produced products and items, as well as being active, supportive members of their communities.
Melvin’s by Newport Avenue Market is proud to carry products from local and regional producers. Continuing the tradition of supporting local area farmers, special Sisters programs like Seed-to-Table, and the community’s own Sisters Outlaws. Melvin’s proudly carries:
Melvin’s by Newport Avenue Market proudly offers company paid medical insurance for all full-time employees, 401k, participation in its Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), and other benefits to not only Bend employees, but Sisters employees alike.
