Say hello to Tarek and Shawndra Salma, operators of the Grocery Outlet located in Fairfield, California! Tarek and Shawndra have been working with Grocery Outlet since 1989. Both of them started out as employees in Vacaville, California while attending junior college. After falling in love and getting married, the couple worked their way up to be owners of the store in Vacaville. They operated the Pleasant Hill store for a while, then in 2008, took the store in Fairfield...
Tarek and Shawndra's mission statement is "Everyone that comes in contact with us should be better off because of it." They donate to numerous local charities including the Italian-American Charity Club, the Pal Program, Mission Solano, and the City of Fairfield Matt Garcia Foundation. The couple also values the personal relationship they have made with each and every customer.
Tarek and Shawndra also have a special mission to help disabled citizens. They assist and extensively train disabled individuals to work in their store, helping them gain life
skills, confidence, and dignity. The Salma's commitment to these people was recognized in 2009 by the Mayor of Fairfield and Solano County, who named their store the "Best Small Business in Solano County" for hiring and fostering a nurturing environment for the employment of persons with disabilities. Tarek and Shawndra were honored to receive this award and hope to maintain this standard of community involvement for years to come.
Update: August 3rd, 2010
Our beloved employee and friend, Anna Ruth Salas, also known as "Nana, Auntie Anna, Nina," of Vacaville, passed peacefully at the tender age of 44. Anna started with us before we opened the store on 12/19/2007. She found a lump on her neck and we helped her get in touch with the Cancer Society, and accompanied her to appointments. Anna used to beg to work while ill so that she could earn money for her beloved 3 sons for birthdays and Christmas. A mother’s love is truly amazing. She was so loved by customers and fellow employees—an example to all mothers everywhere.
