December Featured Business of the Month: Herrema's Marketplace

by Josie Weber

This December we congratulate Herrema's Marketplace for being the Chamber's Featured Business of the Month! For forty years Herrema's has been a staple in Irondequoit. This local full-service supermarket is located at the edge of town on Pattonwood Dr. and offers all of your big supermarket needs in a neighborhood setting. Herrema's carries everything from fresh produce and meats to every day household needs. They also carry local and unique items that are not available in the larger stores.

Herrema's opened in 1985 and currently employees 65 people. Owner, Dave Breen, purchased Herrema's in 2007 after growing up in the family supermarket business. Breen's Market is located in Wayne County in Breen's hometown of Palmyra. Breen is also the Director of Lyons National Bank and combing his knowledge and experience has allowed him to keep Herrema's relevant and successful after 40 years.

When we asked Breen what he likes most about his business he replied, “interacting with customers".

Breen's future plans for himself and Herrema's is simply to continue serving the needs of the Irondequoit residents.
