WOOLWICH TWP. — After 25 years, Woolwich Sand & Gravel, LLC (WS&G) has finally returned to its original home on Oldman’s Creek Road in Woolwich Twp. Join them on Saturday, May 2 for the official grand opening and coming home party for WS&G. Festivities will include refreshments and giveaways.
Local farmer, Fred Musumeci, started WS&G in 1978, selling sand to local area farmers. After realizing there was a need for a sand and gravel pit, Musumeci started his own business using the resources from his farm.
Soon, news of his business spread and he expanded his venture to include hauling and excavation services. With the help of his wife, Agnes, he continued with the business for 12 years until passing the torch to his daughter, Marie, and son in-law, Mark Minniti.
Marie and Mark have successfully run WS&G for the past 25 years, evolving with the ever changing wants and needs of their community and customers. What started as a small sand and gravel pit, they have now turned their family business into a large, commercial retail yard, servicing both residential customers and contractors.
After the opportunity arose to bring the business back home, the Minitti’s both knew that it would be one of the best decisions they would make for the company. For Marie, it was a rewarding journey to bring her business back to the very place where her father had built it, from the ground up.
Today, WS&G’s retail yard houses over 25 bins of sand, topsoil, mulch, gravel and various decorative and commercial stones. Their operations have even expanded to include hauling, excavation and septic services.
Their retail yard is open to both the public and private contractors and conveniently located on Oldman’s Creek Road, down the street from Maugeri’s Farm Market. Their seasonal hours will be Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. In keeping with tradition, WS&G has never operated on a Sunday, which is reserved for family and faith.
WS&G is still a family owned and operated business where both Marie and Mark are involved in all aspects of the company, alongside their children, Nicole and Mark.
