Ron Markin opened Stage Door Casino and Convenience Store in 1976 to serve the Las Vegas community. The Markin family has a long history in the grocery business. John Markin, Ron’s father, learned the grocery business at a young age and in his 20’s, he opened Markin Grocery Store and Ready Money in Edmonton Canada. Ron grew up in the grocery business, working at John’s stores from the time he was 4-years old (he used to stand on a milk box to run the cash register). The grocery stores kept many families going through very hard times. Stage Door Convenience Store is part of Ron Markin’s legacy and the Markin family continues to carry out his vision of providing Las Vegas with exceptional service and value.
