    Shop Local this Holiday Season!

    Instead of shopping online, let’s show our appreciation for the local businesses and retailers in our community that support good jobs in Oklahoma and Texas.


    UFCW Local 1000 is proud to represent our members who work at HAC and Kroger. Our members are trusted experts in their fields, and take pride in their ability to produce quality products and provide exceptional service.


    Thanks to good local retail businesses that invest in their workers, our members are able to put customer service first and earn the extra pay they need to support their families as they work this holiday season.

    These are good local jobs that provide real value to these local businesses, our community, and the customers they serve.


    That’s why we’re asking everyone to skip online shopping this holiday season and come visit local retailers and small businesses that keep our community strong and protect good middle-class jobs.


    Ricky Burris is the President of UFCW Local 1000.
