Local businesses are vital for small towns like Hamilton! They each have so much to offer, not only in terms of the services they provide, but their history as well!
Welcome to Hy-Klas, the local grocery store ran and owned by Mark and Vicki Ward!
Hy-Klas opened in 1938, a business that Vicki was later born into. Whereas Mark began working at Hy-Klas as a bag boy in the 70’s. Soon after Hy-Klas brought them together, they were married and had three daughters, all of whom have been involved in the family business. The couple then took over the company in 2006 from Vicki’s parents. After 41 years of marriage, Mark and Vicki successfully run two Hy-Klas grocery stores, one in Hamilton and the other in Polo.
Hy-Klas is an inviting store full of delicious foods, fresh produce, and friendly employees! The environment radiates that small-town, cozy feel and if you get hungry while shopping, make your way over to their deli and grab a tasty sandwich!
Plus, Blue Bell ice cream is finally back in stock! Come get it while the shelves are still full!
A lot has changed over the years, but something that hasn’t changed is the company’s belief in giving back to the community. They contribute regularly to the local churches, schools, fire department, and even us! Hy-Klas have played a huge part in our events and retreats by going out of their way to make sure we always have what we need when you come to visit!Next time you are in town, make sure to stop in and say hello to all of the friendly faces at our local grocery store!
