History[edit]

Redner's warehouse market in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania.

Redner's is an employee-owned corporation, founded in 1970 by Mary and Earl Redner. They opened two supermarkets in Reading, PA. After a steady success from the start, they expanded their operation to other areas.

In 1975, Redner's formed an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), making them the first supermarket in Pennsylvania to be employee owned.[2] In 2010, Redner's Warehouse Markets celebrated their 40th anniversary.[3]

Pump Perks[edit]

In late 2008, Redner's started a fuel reward program called Pump Perks. The rewards can be redeemed at Redner's Quick Shoppes, select Sunoco stations and other independent fuel contractors such as Good 2 Go in Pittston, PA Shell Fast Fill in Schuylkill Haven, PA and US Gas in Kingston, Pa. There is no sign up, cashiers usually offer a card at checkout.

For every $100.00 spent, the cardholder saves $0.10/gallon of gasoline up to 20 gallons. Once the rewards have been used, the card resets. Each individual reward expires 30 days if not used.[4][5]
