Our History

It all started with something sweet… a candy store and a boxcar of sugar, to be exact.

In 1885, two brothers opened a small candy and tobacco shop in North Dakota. Their company, later called Nash Finch, began wholesaling and launched the Our Family brand in 1904.

Spartan Stores History

A thousand miles away in Michigan, Spartan Stores was born in 1917 when 100 independent retailers banded together to purchase in bulk and pass on their savings to shoppers. Their first purchase was a boxcar of sugar.

Nash Finch Company and Spartan Stores, Inc. merged in November 2013 to form SpartanNash (Nasdaq: SPTN). Since then, SpartanNash has grown into a Fortune 400 food solutions company that delivers the ingredients for a better life to thousands of customer locations around the world.
