Roof caves in at Big Value in Bantam
#1 Sep 22, 2008
I got to spend my last 2 years of high school plus a few more working for Mr C. He was always wonderful to me, even when I left to join a chain store. It leaves me very sad to see the damage done to the store. I hope that Ronnie will get the store back open as soon as possible. Not only does Big Value provide a great alternative to the chain store shopping experience, but as I can attest is a great launch pad for anyone who wants to work in retail. I learned so much from my years there, but as long as I live I can never forget the one lasting peice of advice Mr. C gave to me. He said, Charlie as long as people need to eat, you will always have a job. I soon realized that if you love what you do and get paid well for it, its a win win. Well nearly 30 years later I still remember all the things I learned from Mr C.
Currently I am running a ten million dollar a year business and Im very thankful to Ron Canciani for spending the time he did with me when I was too young, too full of myself, and too sure I knew it all. Good luck to the Canciani family and hurry up and get that store open.

Much like the previous email, I too went to work at Big Value when I was 16. I learned alot from working at such a family oriented store, and everyone was always great to work for. I moved away from the area at age 18, but I have never forgotten about my time working at Big Value and the Canciani family. They made all their employees feel like family, and I know the customers felt that too. I worked with a lot of great people and I am very honored to have been part of Big Value's history. I will always remember working in a neighborhood grocery store where all the regular customers knew you by name. Now that I live in a big city, I sometimes miss that small town feeling you get from a place like Big Value. The Caniani family was always special to me and I wish them nothing but the best and I am happy to hear that the store is up and running again. Here's to another 40 years of success and being a caring hometown grocery store. Thank you for the great memories, good luck!
