12 Days of Small Businesses: McGinnis Sisters Special Food Store

On each of the remaining days leading up to Christmas, we’ll feature a different local business.

Looking for unique and creative holiday gifts?

Throughout the 12 days leading up to Christmas, we're highlighting small businesses in the Cranberry area where you can find great gifts for loved ones.

Today, the sixth day of Christmas, it's McGinnis Sisters Special Food Store along Route 228 in Adams Township.

Sisters Bonnie McGinnis Vello, Sharon McGinnis Young and Noreen McGinnis Campbell run the family-owned grocery store, which has several locations in the Pittsburgh area.

The sisters took over the business, originally opened by their parents as a small produce stand in Baldwin, in 1981. In 2008, they opened the Adams Shoppes location.

If you’re cooking dinner for Christmas this year, the store offers a variety of holiday hams. The sisters also share the recipe of their father, Elwood McGinnis, for a traditional, slow-smoked ham.

McGinnis Sisters also offers its signature line of "Sister Approved" products, inspired by the food the owners ate growing up, gourmet food and fruit baskets and more.
