Two of Tooele County’s oldest family owned businesses are joining forces today.
In today’s edition of the Transcript-Bulletin readers will receive the Soelberg’s Market weekly ad as an insert. County residents that don’t subscribe to the Transcript-Bulletin will receive their Soelberg’s ad in the Tooele Valley Extra that is mailed by the Transcript-Bulletin.
“It is fitting that the Transcript and Soelberg’s have come together in this advertising campaign that will benefit both companies,” said Clayton Dunn, Tooele Transcript-Bulletin associate publisher and advertising manager.
Both companies have deep roots in the county that go back over 100 years.
The Transcript-Bulletin was founded in 1894. Scottish immigrant James Dunn purchased the paper in 1898 for $20 and it has been owned by the Dunn family for four generations.
Karl and Dagmar Soelberg immigrated to Utah from Denmark in 1893. They ran a store in Riverton before they moved to Grantsville in 1905 and opened a grocery and general store.
Soelberg’s Market is now in its fifth generation of being owned and operated by the same family. Soelberg’s Market is an independently owned member of Associated Food Stores,
In 2011 Soelberg’s Market expanded and opened a second Soelberg’s Market store at Woodbury Corporation’s Stansbury Crossing near the intersection of SR-138 and SR-36.
County residents that don’t receive a Soelberg’s Market ad either in the Transcript-Bulletin or by mail can call 435-882-0050 to arrange to get their flyer delivered to their home.
