Midway, Utah (October 2, 2023) Mike Holm, a longtime Midway resident and owner of The Market at Park City, has completed the acquisition of Ridley’s Market and the adjacent convenience store in Midway, Utah. The store, located at 42 West Main Street, will be renamed The Market at Midway. The convenience store at 51 West Main Street will be called Market Express.
This exciting development ensures Midway residents, and those who visit, will continue having access to convenient, high-quality groceries in addition to exceptional customer service. Mike’s son-in-law, Skyler Bamgertner, will be the store director. Skyler was born and raised in Heber and has worked at The Market at Park City for 10 years.
Holm expressed his enthusiasm for this new venture, stating, “I am honored to be a part of the Midway community and to support these essential businesses that have been a vital part of our town’s unique fabric. Our commitment is to build upon the base Ridley’s Market began while introducing exciting new offerings over time to meet the evolving needs of our valued customers.”
Residents of Midway can take comfort in knowing that the familiar faces behind the counter and throughout the store will remain unchanged. The outstanding team of employees, who have built strong relationships with customers over the years, will continue to provide the same warm, friendly service the community has come to appreciate.
Under Holm’s ownership, customers can anticipate enhancements that elevate their shopping experience while staying true to the stores’ core values of quality, service and community engagement.
The Midway community can look forward to exciting developments in the coming months as Holm works closely with the existing team to ensure a seamless transition.
Holm has been in the grocery store business since he was 12 years old, when he sorted glass soda bottles at an independently owned store near his home. From there, Holm worked as a stocker and cashier at an Albertson’s grocery store in Utah County, eventually working his way up to store director at age 25. Later, Holm worked at Albertson’s in Park City, where he stayed for the next 22 years as manager before purchasing The Market at Park City in 2008.
The grocery store and the convenience store will continue to be supported and supplied by Associated Food Stores.
