Patty & Richard are Retiring, July 22nd will be Final Day for Bristol's Ranch House Cafe

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/13/2024 11:04 AM
Arnold, CA...From Bristol's FB Page..."Well, this is really hard….😢 but I know by now most of you have already seen the “for lease” sign outside of the restaurant. Richard and I have decided it’s time to retire, to spend more time with our grandchildren and my wonderful mom. There were a lot of signs that it’s time, one being the high insurance rates, another is the price and quality of the products we are receiving. When we opened 21 years ago I promised the community I would keep our prices as affordable as possible so that all of the young families could afford to eat out. I’ve tried to keep my promise all of these years!

Sender’s Market Weekly Ad & Grocery Specials Through June 18th! Shop Local & Save!!

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/13/2024 09:20 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
