Jean Brown: Save-Mart among generous companies in the Valley

May 3, 2014 

Regarding “Save-Mart CEO is greedy” (Letters, April 28) concerning Save Mart CEO Robert Piccinini: I am sorry if the writer has been inconvenienced by the lack of bonuses, suspended pay hikes and closed stores. What she does not seem to realize is that Save-Mart is not a charity and does have a right to do whatever is necessary to make its stores profitable. All too often we fail to recognize the good for the community as a whole which has come from people such as Piccinini, the Gallo family and Dan Costa, to name just a few. I do thank them for their generosity.
