The value of a day of rest

Fareway's policy of closing on Sunday has been in place for as long as our company has been in existence. In this go-go-go 24/7 world, many of our customers have asked why we continue to do so.

The idea of resting on Sunday is something in which our founder, Paul S. Beckwith, firmly believed-in part because of his religious beliefs, in part because of a story told to him by his father.

Paul's father was a pioneer who traveled to the new territory by wagon train. Some of the pioneers were in a great hurry so they drove on every day, leaving behind those who stopped for a day of rest and worship. Weeks passed, and as the settlers continued to move westward, the families who had taken Sunday off began to catch up with those who had pushed ahead-only to find broken-down wagons, lame animals and weary people. Paul's father told him he decided right then and there that the Bible was right; neither man nor beast was made to work seven days a week.
