Reisbecks Opens In New Martinsville

By Staff | Nov 18, 2020

Workers put the finishing touchs on the front of the Market as they replace the Witschey’s sign with one of their own.

And just like that, Reisbeck’s Markets opened their doors to the public in New Martisville.

After 76 years of providing quality foods and service to the local area, Witschey’s Market turned the keys over to the Reisbeck family to carry on the tradition started by Harold and Ethel Witschey in 1944.

The downtown grocery, bakery, and pharmacy has stood the test of time well, often operating under harsh conditions, including some of the areas worst flooding. However, the friends helping friends attitude always proved to be a winner for the Witschey family, but, as always is the case everything has to come to an end.

With retirement on the families mind for the past several years, they were intent on finding a replacement with the same qualities and committment to community service, once again they proved successful.

Reisbeck’s came along at the right time and the deal was sealed. Although the name on the building has changed and a few alterations are taking place, from the looks of things New Martinsville is in store for more of the same, when it comes to quality foods, service and dependability, while treating customers with respect and dignity.

With several stores throughout the valley the Reisbeck family is no stranger to the business themselves and have operated stores since 1925 when they opened for business in Woodsfield, Ohio, where they still have a location to this day.

Opening day for the Reisbeck market located on North Street, in New Martinsville, was business as usual as area residents flocked to the store to get a first hand look, and a chance to meet the Reisbeck family. While some changes are certain to occur, familiar faces will still be seen as Denny and Rose Wichterman will co-manage the daily store operations. Daily store operating hours are from 6 AM to 10 PM.

New Martinsville Pharmacy will continue their retail operations within the store as an independent pharmacy, with operating hours weekdays 9 AM to 6 PM, and Saturdays 9 AM to 1 PM. The pharmacy is owned and operated by pharmacist Jason Turner, owner of Moundsville Pharmacy, Sistersville Pharmacy, and Pine Grove Pharmacy.
