Our Story

What started as a family business in a small, two-story building at 219 S. Ochoa in 1958 now includes multiple sites, a distribution center, and a customer service center, with goals of further expansion in the near future. This tremendous growth is due to Economy’s loyal customers, who return time and again to get the products they need.

Our focus at Economy has always been our customers and the market. We keep a close eye on the products, quality and price. Serving our customers and friends is the best way to describe the experience at Economy.” – Paul Dipp, President

Today, whether you’re placing an order online or dropping by one of our facilities for a pick-up, we continue to focus on building strong relationships with our customers. Stop by our site and you’ll quickly see that employees and customers know each other by name. As a family-run business, we care about the people and areas we serve, and we strive to ensure our wide range of products meets your needs. Our extensive knowledge of the region and strong manufacturer relationships set us apart from our competitors. We select our products carefully to ensure quality, and we’ve developed our own line of products and labels to meet local needs, including our exclusive Red & White and Economy’s Best labels, as well as our Lariat soft drink.

I love to shop here! No membership required and they have a lot of great deals on food and household items. I always think I will spend more than what I have, but at the register I am surprised that the price is always lower than what I imagined in my head. Very affordable and great quality. No membership required. Can’t beat it!” – Justice U. “Good prices, great variety.” – Luis R.
