Offering a wide product selection in-store and online, Altmeyer's Bed, Bath & Home has grown to serve the greater Pittsburgh market and beyond.

By Eric Slack

Founded in 1941, Altmeyer's Bed, Bath & Home has come a long way from the first Altmeyer Home Store in New Kensington, Pa. Over time, the company has made itself a part of its communities, and today Altmeyer's Bed, Bath & Home includes 11 stores serving Pennsylvania residents.

“We’ve built a fairly strong presence in the sector and our business holds up against larger competitors,” President Robert Altmeyer says. “We offer a comfortable shopping experience for our customers.”

Strong personal belief, as well as a philosophy of customer service and employee satisfaction, guide Carter’s Supermarket’s owners through competitive and other challenges.

By Jim Harris

Carter’s Supermarket’s owners know the company faces a significant challenge from big-box and other national retailers setting up shop in its home base in Livingston Parish in Louisiana.
