Ralph and Dawn Zeien were introduced to Grocery Outlet in 2009 through a friend and after visiting a store, they knew it was the opportunity they had been looking for. In January 2010, Ralph and Dawn moved 3,000 miles from Concord, North Carolina to work at the Pleasant Hill, California store. The move must have meant to be because they are excited to be opening a brand new Grocery Outlet in Concord, California! Same city, different state!
They are excited about working together and bringing over 25 years of customer service and retail excellence to their store in Concord. Ralph’s retail experience has included JCPenney, Mervyn’s, Macy’s and the last ten years as Store Manager of Super Target in the Carolinas, taking pride in providing great service and having the cleanest and freshest store in his market. Dawn’s experience has been in banking and retail. In banking, she was involved in both customer service and community reinvestment. Her last ten years was also with Target, where she worked in Human Resources and Talent Management and excelled in customer service and community involvement.
