The Walmart Supercenter in Jasper, already excited over a major ongoing renovation, has been honored as the best Walmart in a region covering the northern halves of Alabama and  Mississippi. 

Store manager Chris Rhodes said the Regional Supercenter Store of the Year Award was given to the Jasper store, Store No. 287, at a Jan. 30 company meeting in Houston, Texas. The Jasper location, which received the award for the Southeast Division, Region 14,  beat out approximately 130 stores. 

It is based off of the level of service we provide our customers and taking care of our associates. Of course, that is based off of different metrics and those are the two most critical metrics that they measure off of.

When you browse through the store end of Cracker Barrel’s Jasper location, you are now going through the best Cracker Barrel store in the entire national chain.

“They pick one retail and one restaurant,” said Mark Gajdosik, the store’s general manager. “Our retail store was No. 1 in the entire company last fiscal year (2018).”

The criteria to judge the retail stores includes sales, and traffic growth over the year, he said, as well as how many restaurant guests then purchase from the retail store. “That’s a big thing, because they want to see if they are eating or are they shopping in the store as well,” he said. 

“We are still really focused on the locals, because that is what we are about,” he said. “But that interstate is really helping to bring us over the top.”

My relationship with the Retail Strategies team has been extremely valuable over the last couple of years as I’ve searched for sites in the Southeast. They have been persistent and provided any information they could gather for available properties that fit my criteria. If they received news that a space was coming available they made sure to immediately give me a call and connect with the owners. I would recommend using this service to any of my colleagues looking in their client cities.
