Beit Bros. Super Markets, Inc. was a family owned and operated company serving eastern Connecticut from 1908 to 2008. Known throughout the community for quality goods and services for generations, our primary origins began in the cattle business, opening our first meat market in Norwich in the early 1900's. Shortly after, Beit Bros. expanded into supermarkets. Family, community, and tradition were the staples of our business. Beit Bros. had come a long way since the old meat market started by Samuel and his sons Nathan, Max, and Louis. This success would not have been possible without the lessons of hard work and giving back to the community. These lessons were passed down from generation to generation.

After one hundred years of proud service to our community, Beit Bros. closed the doors for the final time November 6, 2008. A tight economy, the catastrophic loss of merchandise following a lightening strike, and the loss of the Dayville store caused Beit Bros. to close the remaining store in Uncasville, Connecticut. “The power outage losses, combined with the increased competition from the big box competitors, excessively high energy costs, and a week economy has led us to conclude that attempts to continue our operation no longer make sense,” states Arthur and Nathan Beit, co-owners of the hundred year old family business which has operated the store in the town of Montville since 1961. “It is with a very heavy heart, but also with much gratitude to our loyal customers and dedicated staff that we make this announcement at this time. We are very proud to have serviced the Montville community and surrounding towns for over forty-seven years.”

Thank you so much for your patronage during our one hundred years of operation! I have decided to keep this website to share archives of my Beit Bros. heritage. - Eric Beit

Beit Bros 252 Main Street, Norwich, CT - December 1949

Our family business started in Norwich, CT.  The first meat market was on the West Side.  As our business grew, we added locations.  This photograph was taken in front of our "Super Market" on Franklin Square, right at the heart of the city.  There was once a time when eveyone went "Down City" to do all their major shopping . . . food stores, clothing stores, banks, department stores, restaraunts . . . and Beit Bros. was in the middle of that hustle and bustle.
