Gregg's Marketplace is the Greater Binghamton Chamber Business of the Week.

The supermarket is celebrating its 50th anniversary in Whitney Point.

Gregg's has a second location in Marathon.

Owner Marvin Gregg said the stores have built their reputation on strong customer service provided by loyal employees, many of whom have been with the operation for decades.

Gregg said his meat selection and deli are also areas of pride.

The Whitney Point complex also houses a True Value hardware store, a Radio Shack outlet and Verizon Wireless dealer.

"We've been very successful operating a supermarket in Whitney Point and in Marathon. Our customer service and we do a lot for the community. I've been honored many times by different groups and organizations for what we've given back to the community," said Owner Marvin Gregg.

Gregg says the store is planning a 50th anniversary celebration with hot dogs and soda and lots of store specials.

Marvin's three children, Sherry, Holly and Lance, all helped them manage the various operations.

And, he says all six of his grandchildren and his oldest great-grandson have worked in one of the stores at some point in their upbringing.
