For over 90 years, Fligner’s Market has been a staple of the Lorain County community. Well known for our second to none custom cut butcher, we also offer produce, seafood, fresh baked goods and specialty items for your entire grocery experience. In our aisles you’ll find delicacies from as close as the farms of Northeast, Ohio and as far as Poland, Macedonia, Italy, Germany and all corners of the globe.
We’re proud to be a staple as Lorain’s longest standing grocery store. Providing families a first class grocery experience at, often times, 60% cheaper than you’ll find at big box chain stores has always been what matters most to us. From the moment you walk in our store you’ll discover what sets us apart. And, as always, we’ll still bring your groceries out to your car for you.
“Our mission is to provide superior products with the best possible service at the absolute lowest prices.”
In 1924, Harry and Morris Fligner opened the Lorain Cut-Rate Fruit Company using that slogan as the basis for success.
Kel started working at the store in 1949 and quickly fell in love with the family business, and eventually purchased the market in 1963 from his father, Morris and grandfather.
Kel incorporated FLIGNER’S MARKET and increased the store size from 2,000 to 35,000 square feet, the size it is today. Originally a 25-foot by 80-foot produce storefront, Fligner’s stands as one of the last independent competitors to the mega-supermarket chains thanks to the efforts of Kel and the 4th generation addition of his son Ben.
Customers travel from as far away as Akron, Cleveland and Sandusky because of the excellent service, the local shopping experience as well as access to the largest custom cut full service discount meat counter In Ohio.”
Catering was added in 1999 with Ben’s help as another quality service and Fligner’s has been a key supplier to many Lorain County events. As a cornerstone of Lorain County, Fligner’s Market has been proudly offering the best products and services at the lowest prices for 94 years.
