Stater Bros.' customers can participate by purchasing red paper hearts for $1 each and gold paper hearts for $5 each. The paper hearts are scannable at the register and will be added to the customer's total bill and shown on the receipt for easy recordkeeping. Customers are welcome to write their name or the name of a loved one on the hearts, which will be displayed inside the store.

This is the eighth consecutive year that Stater Bros. has participated in an in-store campaign to benefit the American Heart Association. "Have A Heart, Save A Heart" is the largest campaign of this type in the American Heart Association's Western States Affiliate. Last year, Stater Bros. customers and employees raised over $500,000 for the American Heart Association. To date, customers and employees of Stater Bros. have raised over $1.9 million to support research and provide programs to educate the communities served by Stater Bros. about the risks of heart disease and stroke.

"The Stater Bros. 'Family' of Employees is very happy to be able to give back because in some way or another we have all been affected or know someone who has been affected by heart disease or stroke," stated Jack H. Brown, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Stater Bros. Markets. "We are glad to continue to assist the American Heart Association in their fight."
