Michael and Grethe Kiley

Josie & Lou Doto and Michael & Grethe Kiley are the operating partners of John’s Friendly Market.
It’s been one year since we lost our dad, John Johnson. We miss him every day, but we have the privilege of honoring his memory by operating John’s Family Market as a family business. We believe he would be very proud of the changes and improvements we’ve made while we continue his legacy of generosity by supporting numerous charities and organizations in and around Haddon Heights. Our “world-famous” hoagies are better than ever, and items are added almost daily to our selection of prepared foods. We’re always looking for new products and services
to offer and welcome your suggestions.

Our entire family wishes to express our appreciation to the loyal friends and customers who supported us during Dad’s illness and throughout the transitions over the last year. When you stop by the store, you’ll find that most of Dad’s long-term employees remain with us and you’ll see a number of new faces as well. Dad would be happy to know that his grandchildren are learning the ropes both behind the register and in the meat department.

So, to all our former, present, and future customers, thank you for enabling us to preserve a Haddon Heights institution. And please continue to record your thoughts and memories in the book on Dad’s chair. We love reading what you all have to say, and it’s a comfort to have such a reminder of how well-loved he was.

John’s Friendly Market is open 7 days a week.
