Bill was born and raised right here in Calistoga, he attended and graduated in the Calistoga School system. His Cal Mart days began in April 1968 sorting bottles for owners Allen Young and Wally Kettlewell. Bill also performed the duties of courtesy clerk (“bagger” as referred to in the days of yesteryear) and eventually moved his way up the grocery chain of responsibilities before purchasing the store in 1978. There were a couple of business partners over the years, but currently he finds himself the proud, sole proprietor of Cal Mart. Bill thoroughly enjoys the grocery business and feels fortunate to have become the owner of Cal Mart. And, more often than not, you can find him at the checkstand in the early morning hours greeting the day’s first customers.
