About Our Store

Apples Market proudly serves the community of Lorain County. You will find fresh local produce, USDA Choice meats, a full service deli and bakery, and a large selection of grocery, dairy, frozen, and beer and wine items!

Founded in 1979 by Bill and Ernie Brumfield, Apples began as a "warehouse store". Steve Krakomperger and Steve Pittenger purchased the company in 1998 and transitioned Apples into a more conventional type grocery store. The first two stores were located in Elyria and Norwalk, the success of which led to the opening of Apples stores in Lorain, Sheffield Village, and Sheffield Lake. All of these locations were previous storefronts by major retailers that left their communities. Apples prides itself on investing in communities and breathing life back into closed operations. The success of these stores would not have been possible without the support of the communities they serve and all their loyal customers.

A 16,000 square foot warehouse in Wellington allows Apples the opportunity to buy in bulk. It eliminates the middleman, thus passing the savings on to the customers. Just look for the yellow Everyday Low Price signs throughout the store.

Since Apples is a locally owned business, they do their best to support other Ohio businesses-such as Ballreich and Dan Dee potato chips-by selling their products in the store. Whenever possible, the produce department is stocked with fresh produce from local farms so you get the freshest and best tasting product around. If you are feeling nostalgic and are looking for that delicious ice cream you remember from yesteryear, try one of the Ohio-based ice cream brands such as Toft's, Smith's, Ruggles, Pierres, or Velvet!

Some of the other Ohio-based products you will find at Apples stores are:

  • "Your Deli" chicken paprikash
  • "Stein's" honey
  • "Dei Fratelli" products
  • "Dairymens" dairy products
  • "Sugardale" and "Walnut Creek" meat and deli items
  • "Mama Jo's" pies
