Shop Local: Winemaker Gets Foothold at Walmart

LOWELLVILLE, Ohio – Marisa Sergi, founder and CEO of RedHead Brands LLC, 6597 Center Road, Lowellville, is a new entrepreneur who is taking her product to the world’s largest retailer.

Walmart, which selected RedHead as part of its Investing in American Jobs Initiative, began stocking Sergi’s RedHead wines about a month ago in 40 of its stores in Ohio.

The list of stores and retail chains where RedHead is sold also includes Giant Eagle, Rulli Brothers and Sparkle. “Walmart’s a great opportunity but I don’t want to completely neglect my other customers, too,” Sergi says.
