What many people consider the last Mom and Pop grocery store in Ontario, Oregon, Mallard’s Grocery is a staple for folks in this working-class neighborhood who come for hot meals and all of their grocery needs. The store has seen many changes around it, but for 80 years, Mallard’s has been providing consistently fast friendly service to the community.
During the pandemic, the importance of Mallard’s in the neighborhood has shown through. “The crisis has actually increased our sales, “says owner Shannon Aguilar. “Our customers still needed the basics that we always provide, and while we added more procedures to keep everyone safe, our service and friendly attitude never changed.”
Mallard’s was excited to join Columbia Bank’s Pass it On Project and they knew exactly what they wanted to do to help their community. “We are passing it on by giving food to a group of people who provide food ministry to people right in our parking lot,” says Aguilar. “No matter who it is or what circumstances they face, they will get a plate of food and a smile. With Columbia Bank paying for the food, we are helping to provide both physical and spiritual substance to people in need.”
