A Bit of Wisdom from William C. Durant

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/08/2022 10:57 AM
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." ~ William C. Durant December 8, 1861 – March 18, 1947

"Civilization begins with order, grows with liberty and dies with chaos." ~ William C. Durant December 8, 1861 – March 18, 1947

"To speak ill of others is a dishonest way of praising ourselves. Nothing is often a good thing to say, and always a clever thing to say." ~ William C. Durant December 8, 1861 – March 18, 1947

"The family is the nucleus of civilization." ~ William C. Durant December 8, 1861 – March 18, 1947

"It may be true that you can't fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country." ~ William C. Durant December 8, 1861 – March 18, 1947

"The political machine triumphs because it is a united minority acting against a divided majority." ~ William C. Durant December 8, 1861 – March 18, 1947

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/08/2022 06:40 AM

All of our area ranked not only in the top one percent but in the top one half of one percent.

Sender’s Market Weekly Ad & Grocery Specials December 7 - 13th! Shop Local & Save!

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/07/2022 11:47 AM
Mountain Ranch, CA…In 1950, we started out as a family operation with Erich’s father and mother, August and Freida Sender, in a century-old adobe building. The upstairs was home to the Sender family, and the first floor included groceries, a meat market, a bar, and a small eating place called Opa’s Smokehouse. On Christmas morning in 1968, the old store was destroyed by fire. But in June 1969, Sender’s Market, Inc. was opened. Since that time, there have been many changes, including remodeling, expansion, and the addition of many employees. That’s also when we added the truss plant and purchased Sender’s Market Ace Hardware in Valley Springs. Today, we’re still family owned and still working hard to stock everything from pantry essentials to power tools. Whether you’ve got questions about the perfect cut of meat or the right kind of paint, our helpful, knowledgeable staff has you covered. Click on images below for larger versions.
