As reported by Delaware Business Now:

Delaware Supermarkets Inc. is handing out $150 bonuses to 1,000 non-management and union-represented employees as a result of the recent tax reform bill being signed into law. The bonus is in addition to holiday and performance bonuses.

The investment totals $300,000.

The Wilmington-based company, which owns six ShopRite supermarkets in New Castle County, will also invest $150,000 into employee training and development programs.

The company, also known as Kenny Family ShopRites, is following in the footsteps of such large corporations as AT&T, Boeing and Comcast.

“Our ability to provide bonuses and training to our employees demonstrates the far-reaching implications of this tax reform,” said Christopher Kenny, CEO of Delaware Supermarkets. “We have a renewed optimism for the local and the national economy, and this important legislation better positions us for future growth.”

Melissa Kenny, director of sales and marketing for the company, said: “This legislation benefits those of who count on Main Street budgets for our livelihoods, and it’s a privilege to share the benefits with the men and women who work so hard at ShopRite. It makes it possible to succeed in a very competitive industry.”
