Beavers Supermarket stands as the last remaining locally owned and operated grocery store in Ft. Collins. Don Beavers started it all in Fairmont, Nebraska in 1946. Don's son Doug grew up working in the store where he learned all about the business, and went on to buy his own store in Grand Junction, Colorado in 1975. A short two years later, Doug caught wind of an opportunity to buy a store near downtown Ft. Collins on the Northwest corner of Mountain Ave. and Shields St.  Doug and his wife, Cheryl decided to sell the Grand Junction store and try their luck at this Ft. Collins location. The decision turned out to be the right one, as the store continues to compete with the big chain stores of today by providing great prices, friendly service, and unmatched convenience.
