Sender’s Market’s Weekly Ad & Grocery Specials Through January 25th Shop Local & Save!

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/23/2022 11:08 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.

Hey Good People!! Your Pure Mountain Fun Awaits at Bear Valley!!

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/22/2022 10:44 AM
Bear Valley, CA...Hey Good People! We broke our all time December record for snowfall on Dec 29th at 8am with the new record being 161″. Mattly’s weather forecast for Saturday. As strong high pressure ridging off the West Coast of Oregon influences today’s forecast we’ll see a sunny day ahead with windy conditions in the a.m. hours before the winds decide to lessen as the afternoon approaches. 35F is the slated high for the day yet with wind values into the 50mph range this morning the temperature looks to dip into the single digits from wind chill. Some delays this morning with chair operations are possible and there is a possibility that the winds may disrupt lift service through out the day very similar to yesterday for the morning hours. Sunday things will settle back down as the surface gradients lessen and give way to a more mild type of sunny day during our Junuary phase of the season.
