Hiller’s Markets – a local family-owned chain of independent markets– has contracted with Stone Interactive Group to redesign their corporate website (www.Hillers.com ).

With a reputation as southeast Michigan’s finest gourmet and everyday supermarket, Hiller’s desired a Web site that provides users a level of service and selection to better mirror their in-store shopping experience. Stone will provide design, architecture, and development services to bring a new site online in midsummer 2008. The site will boast enhanced tools and features, including an interactive blog, online recipes and other elements to allow shoppers easier access to their favorite items and food-related resources.

Sidney Hiller started Hiller’s as a details-focused butcher shop in 1941 in Detroit. When his son Jim took over the business in the 1980s, he continued the ‘treat-customers-like-family’ service, but upgraded the stores to one-stop-shopping for everyone’s needs. Today, the company offers the largest selection of gourmet, natural, specialty, ethnic, gluten-free and kosher items.

“We are different,” says Jim Hiller, president, Hiller’s Markets. “Our website will reflect—better than ever—those distinctions which make us the store of choice for both everyday and gourmet shoppers across southeast Michigan.”

There are seven Hiller’s stores, with the newest location on the west side of Union Lake Road just south of Commerce Road, representing the best of the Hiller’s brand, which stands for authenticity, quality, and the way things should be.
