Located in Texas and New Mexico, United Supermarkets is a chain of grocery stores that operates 95 different stores throughout the two states. Each store in the chain offers a range of food, personal, and household products, including fresh produce, meats, dairy, pantry items, cleaning supplies, deli items, beverages, and much more.

The history of United Supermarkets goes back more than 100 years to 1916 when a man named H.D. Snell opened “United Cash Store” in Sayre, Oklahoma. The company no longer operates in the state of Oklahoma, however, and these stores are exclusive to Texas and New Mexico. Because of other stores with a similar name, this company does business under “The United Family”.
United offers a rewards program that allows customers to join for free by downloading the app and then can earn rewards, save on fuel, get free groceries, and receive other perks. Plus, rewards members can access digital coupons. The sale flyer for United Supermarkets changes each week, so customers can always get a deal on different and unique items. Examples of deals in the sales flyer include clementine mandarins 5 pounds for $4.99, a 7 count bag of avocados for $2.97, or Lay’s potato chips $1.97 per bag (with the purchase of 3).
United Supermarkets runs a cool and trendy food truck that stocks freshly made foods from its delicious deli counter. Unique offerings include burger dogs, brisket nachos, brisket tacos, sweet potato waffle fries, and a gourmet cheesecake cone. The locations of the food truck can be tracked through the store’s web page.
In 2004, CEO of United Supermarkets, Dan J. Sanders, published a book that stressed the importance of the principles upon which the company was founded—most importantly, people before profits. The name of the book is Built to Serve and includes a foreword by Stephen Covey, who is the well-known author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
