That's how it started in the 1930's, when Greg Wade's grandfather opened the
Alum Ridge Grocery.
By the '50's, the family had opened the first Wade's in Christiansburg, and
started building a clientele with loyalty that spans generations.

As the bigger chains have moved in, that loyalty has enabled Wade's to not
only survive, but thrive. It now has six stores in the New River Valley.
suOne of the advantages to being small is that management can make decisions
quickly on a local basis, rather than going through a corporate headquarters.
