Steve Ravitz, the owner of many supermarkets in New Jersey dies of COVID-19
The owner of the Ravitz family markets, Steve Ravitz, died on Tuesday after a great fight with Coronavirus at the age of 72.
He was one of the most renowned grocery market owners in South Jersey.
He extended the business empire from a family grocery store started by his father 60 years ago in North Philadelphia.
For his customer services, at his 6 Supermarket across South Jersey, his thousands of customers will remember him.
Governor of New Jersey, Phil Murphy, on Thursday said, "Steve will be best remembered for philanthropic community non-profit organization
literally millions of dollars. We know that his legacy will be carried on by his family. God bless you, Steve."
A few years ago, he got retired from his around 50 years of working for his six supermarkets, i.e., five ShopRites in Cherry Hill, Marlton, and Mount Laurel, and Price Rite in Camden.
Stanley Ravitz(father of Steve) opened the family's first grocery store at Susquehanna Avenue and North Broad Street in 1960. Later they opened another grocery store at Kings Highway North and Chapel Avenue in Cherry Hill.
Rabbi Emeritus Steven Lindemann of Temple Beth Sholom in Cherry Hill told us about the phone call Ravitz made to him in March.
"He said, 'I want you to be sure to use the Act of Kindness Fund to help people. And if you need more, let me know."
"There are many people who will give when called. There are not many people who call to give. Steve was that person," the Rabbi added.
