A word from our sponsors: Change to Lakeside Sentry to bring thousands of lower prices

Note: Lakeside Sentry is a westofthei.com sponsor.

The change to becoming a Sentry store for Lakeside Sentry in Paddock Lake, Highways 50 and 75/83, is a lot more significant than just the name on the sign.

“We’re able to lower 2,200 prices,” explained Marv Jenkins, who still owns the store along with his wife, Alison. That’s because of the buying power of the combined 32-store Sentry group.

The change to Sentry for the store is official today.

The pricing changes have made shopping at Lakeside Sentry a better value than ever, Jenkins said.

“If people shop our ad and buy our save everyday items, they save very little by driving to a big box store,” Jenkins said.

Along with the many lower prices, Jenkins listed some of the other improvements shoppers will see:

  • Twice as many sale items in the store’s weekly ad (available every week on westofthei.com).
  • 500 added products on the store’s shelves.
  • Grebe’s bakery items.
  • Crestwood products.
  • Expanded deli choices.

But while the change to Sentry has brought a lot of new features to the store, Jenkins stressed that many of the aspects that people have come to count on are not changing one bit.

“We still have the same meat department, including the personnel. We still buying the top grade meat,” Jenkins said.

The deli will still feature Boar’s Head products and many bakery items will still be baked on site in the store. Bakery decorating services will still be available too.

Also unchanged will be Marv and Alison Jenkins commitment to cleanliness, customer service and quality.

“These are the three things we feel we stand out in,” Marv Jenkins said. “We want to make the store the best it can be.”

Lakeside Sentry employs 60 plus people who mostly live in the adjoining communities.

“We are dedicated to serving the area with a complete shopping experience with fair prices,” Jenkins said. “We are your hometown store.”

    Interesting stat. The store employs 60 people? Amazing how a ‘little’ store can have that much impact on a community. Support the store and support your neighbor at the same time.
