Businessman and Fourth District Representative Honourable Mark H. Vanterpool and his wife Mrs Judith E. Vanterpool, along with some of the supermarket's staff, celebrated the milestone at the New Testament Church of God International Worship Centre in Baughers Bay on Sunday, November 21, 2021.
“We want to say a big thank you very much to all our customers all over the territory. Thank you all for supporting One Mart for the last 35 years,” Honourable Vanterpool said during the service.
Hon Vanterpool also made a $5,000 donation to the church.
“We would also like to present a little token of our appreciation to the New Testament Church of God for being with us over the years,” Hon Vanterpool said.
The One mart staff then led the church in a special rendition of “I give you thanks.”
