Humane Society donation
Centralia, Illinois, December 27, 2018. Buchheit of Centralia raised $1697.50 for the Centralia Humane Society. Customers of each Buchheit store raised funds for the Pet Pantry promotion by purchasing donation cards at the registers. The money raised goes toward buying dog and cat food and shelter maintenance supplies. Buchheit donated a total of $4,370.48 to local animal shelters that help rescue dogs and cats. It is essential to the Buchheit family that they give back to the communities which have supported them over the past 84 years of operation.
Buchheit Retail has been serving the community since 1934. Currently Buchheit Retail operates eight stores – Herculaneum, House Springs, Perryville and Jackson in Missouri and Jacksonville, Greenville, Centralia, and Sparta in Illinois. Buchheit features merchandise for the home, garden, and farm that is geared toward exploring the possibilities of a simpler life.
