Happy Thanksgiving!

As we celebrate Thanksgiving and approach the end of yet another year, I feel it is important that we, as individuals, reflect on what transpires in our lives. In the span of one year, so much happens. For example, in this past year, I lost a dear friend, I am expecting my first child, I reconnected with old friends, and have endured a challenging economic year. These experiences can likely apply to anyone. It's life. We deal with what we are given.

Well I can surely say that I am thankful for the life I have been given. I am thankful for where I come from, I am thankful for the people in my life. I am ultimately thankful for the difficulties in my life that in the end, they make me wiser & stronger.

I am thankful for neighborhood. Each Doris Italian Market & Bakery is a part of its neighborhood. Traditions have started and maintained by the members of its communities and store locations. From the Hollywood Fire Department getting its meat products from the store to Coral Springs residents rushing to get in the Christmas Eve photo before opening time.

I am thankful for the loyalty of our customers and the relationships that have been forged by this. I have seen families grow. From children being born, I have watched many grow up and some eventually worked at their neighborhood Italian Market. In a time where we are all in a rush to live, I am thankful for the little things that actually matter a lot.

We at Doris Italian Markets are thankful for our customers that choose to come to our stores when they have so many other choices. We are thankful that you have made us a part of your neighborhood and your lives.

This Thanksgiving, as we all give thanks, let us remember to be thankful for our families and to the fact that the neighborhood is alive and well in South Florida. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Be well & be safe.
