Wildberries Marketplace

Wildberries marketpalce is washt is known as a crossover store. Unlike stores which try to change people's eating habbits by supplying only organic foods, Wildberries offers a mixture of organic and conventional foods, a ratio of about 3 to 1. The store initially ran as a Safeway in 1956, then turned into Larry's, and has now been owned by Phillip Riccord for the past 15 years as Wildberries. Phillip says that the store has been profitable 14 out of their 15 years in business.

Energy Retrofit

Before the RCEA helped in retrofitting the store, Wildberries was using incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. All the lights in the store, with only minor exeptions, were replaced with Compact Flouresent Light bulbs. Many of the bulbs were replaced along with newer, more energy efficient fixtures and ballasts. The retrofit started in the back upstairs in the office, then moved toward the customer shopping area. Even the walk-in refirigerators and freezers had their bulbs replaced with CFLs.
