What you need to know about Frank Cutsforth
Cutsforth’s Market, a long-standing establishment cherished by thousands of Canby residents as their go-to shopping destination, has a rich history dating back to 1928. It all began when Frank T. Cutsforth, the grandfather of the current owner, initiated a meat shop named “Cutsforth’s Market” in the heart of downtown Canby, featuring convenient lockers for the patrons. In 1946, Glenn Cutsforth, Frank’s father, acquired the business from his father and, along with his wife Elsie, expanded the offerings to include groceries, rebranding the store as “Cutsforth’s Grocery Store and Meat Market.”
Over the years, the number of frozen food lockers increased from 400 to 1,000. A significant renovation in 1967 transformed the establishment into Cutsforth’s Thriftway, retaining this affiliation for several decades until reverting to its original name, “Cutsforth’s Market,” with an expanded range of products that extended beyond just groceries.
Following his graduation, Frank briefly attended the University of Oregon and later Portland State University before deciding to return to Canby. In 1964, he joined his parents’ business, assuming the role of produce manager. During his time managing the store, Frank encountered Kathe, who eventually became his wife in 1970. As they approach their 52nd wedding anniversary, Kathe has long been responsible for handling the store’s financial records.
Frank Cutsforth’s personality embodies the true essence of dedication, love, and support. His unwavering commitment to his family, his exceptional professional achievements, and his selfless contributions to the community showcase the power of empathy and resilience in shaping a life worth emulating.
