Powell’s Supermarket is very community driven and a big supporter of local events and charitable organizations;
You don’t make it to more than 70 years in business without being an instrumental part of the communities you serve. Besides being a significant employer, Powell’s Supermarket and the entire Powell Group of Companies continues to be a company that is committed to engaging with its customers and supporting local groups, individuals, charities, businesses, and more. One such charity is Make-A Wish Newfoundland and Labrador. Powell’s Supermarket has proudly raised $10,000 annually in order to grant the Wish of a local child through Make-A-Wish. These Wish experiences have an incredible impact those children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. It is an unforgettable experience for all those involved in granting a Wish, and we look forward to making dreams come true annually for a child in the Conception Bay North area. Thank you to our amazing staff, loyal customers and generous vendor partners for supporting us with this initiative.
