Our Family of Values

At Big Y, we pride ourselves on our unique Culture of Caring. A big part of our culture comes from being family owned and family oriented for over 85 years.

Even though we are a fairly large retailer (and growing!), working at Big Y feels like being a part of a family.

At Big Y, we continue to build on our Culture of Caring™ and the Pursuit of Excellence™ by recognizing and celebrating the diversity of our growing workforce. We strive to treat each other with dignity, respect, compassion and sensitivity.

We encourage all of our fellow employees to do what is right, unite in a common goal, and commit to excellence.

Our Mission

Because we care, our Big Y family delivers a personal connection that benefits our customers and communities with every product, service and solution we provide.

Our Vision

As knowledgeable and caring fellow Big Y employees, we work together with our customers, our colleagues, and our communities to provide exceptional value and a personal shopping experience that makes daily life easier, more healthful and enjoyable.


Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At Big Y, diversity allows for a rich, dynamic work environment that brings innovation, variety of perspectives, and a competitive edge in our market place that allows us to better serve our communities.

We value an equitable and inclusive environment for our employees, customers and communities at large. We strive to be better and do better on our ongoing journey of growth and self-reflection.
