About Hometown Marketplace

A Family Tradition

The store originally opened in April 1962 as one of Marvin’s Stores. Don Ellis, the original store manager, bought the store several years later. In January 2001, the Kronenberger family of Waynesville purchased the store from Don. Ron has worked at the store since 1976 and operates the store today. Terry Kronenberger is the name behind “Grandma K’s” recipes; fresh home-cooked and uniquely prepared foods. John and Ronnie, their sons, along with grandchildren, Gabe and Aiden, work in the store. Hannah, Jaxston and Quinten, younger grandchildren, are up-and-comers and are often seen in the store. The family loves to support the community through active involvement.

Melissa Stiver, store manager, and Joshua Roeser, co-manager, along with the entire Hometown Marketplace team assist customers in delivering our tradition of Value, Quality and Outstanding Service.

Our Deli Department

We are especially known for our delicious fried chicken, daily soup selections, a variety of unique and fresh salads and prepared to order sandwiches. We also have daily hot meal options that are published on our HOMETOWNMARKETPLACE Facebook page. For our customers wanting to take fully prepared meals home to warm and eat, we offer our “Grab and Go” section containing items such as cabbage rolls, meatloaf, wings, sandwiches and salads. Hot lunch and dinners are served from 10:30am to 7pm and hot breakfast is served from 7am to 10am every day of the week. Whether you are looking for a quick lunch, a family meal or a party tray for that special occasion, our full-service deli offers a wide and unique selection to choose from.

Our Meat Department

Value Pack Steak Selection and Pricing

Our fresh meat is cut and ground in our store, so you can still get “what you want”, “how you want it” and “the way you want it” by professional and friendly meat-cutters. Our guests tell us that “the quality of the product is superior to any they have found locally”.

We have become famous for our value-pack steak selections and their value pricing that are unmatched in tenderness and flavor. We offer USDA inspected Beef Tenderloin, T-bone, Ribeye and New York Strip steaks, all at everyday low prices.

We are so proud of our steaks that we have a money-back guarantee.
