Don was really a great guy
I was saddened to hear of Mr. Weaver's passing. I was loyal customer and had many good conversations about his business here in the upstate. I looked at my visits to Deal Mart as a real treat. I would pop in to get my wife some 1.25 bagels and come out with 3 bags of cookies and candies. It was true what Don told me once, Snacks sell, I take all I can get my hands on." Rest easy Don.
Don was one of the best people I met coming to Simpsonville. He was kind, helpful and always pleasant, even after taken ill. His stores bought me great joy. I enjoyed the banter, the deals, the whole package. Dealmart became part of my life, like rain and sunshine. God Bless you Don, thank you for you.

I pray for the family during this time. Mr. Don was a customer of mine at first, then we grew to become friends. I would stop by the store just to say hey and he had something smart to say all the time lol. He will be missed. I pray that God comforts you all during this time.
On behalf of our entire family, we want to send our deepest sympathy and condolences. We enjoyed talking to Don, Sandy, and other members of the Weaver family when we shopped in DealMart. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
On behalf of our entire family, we want to thank Don for the gift he gave us by opening DealMart. Our family has been rich in heavenly blessing but short on cash and yet we ate like royalty because of DealMart. Going grocery shopping was a family outing, complete with dancing in the aisles to THE BEST MUSIC. Filling up our carts was not only an adventure, it was pure delight. Such great deals on food that we could never have purchased anywhere else. After shopping there was the phone call to other family members, "You'll never guess what I got at DealMart today." All of us are sad today. It was a pleasure to find him pushing carts down the aisles. He always had time for a chat and a smile. Don will be greatly missed by our family.
Sending my deepest sympathy and condolences ️. I’ve been a loyal customer of Deal Mart since 2007 in Simpsonville at the old location. Don always said hello and made conversation- sweetest man ever! I will miss you and your great deals at the store.
So sad to here of Mr. Weavers passing way too early. He was a mentor to me when I started out at Winn Dixie 35 years ago. Always had great admiration of the professional way he carried himself, he will be missed by many.
Almost 36 years ago "Mr. Weaver" promoted me to market manager at Winn-Dixie. While eating breakfast together at a small restaurant next to the store he "asked" me to take the promotion. After reminding him there were others, I thought more prepared for the position, Mr.Weaver said, "but you're my first promotion as supervisor. I want the choice to be the right one". I relayed that I had never even attempted inventory in my work history. He said something I've never forgotten and I've passed it on to those I've promoted, he said, "Here's my home phone number. I've never done inventory either, if you get stuck, call me and we can learn it together". I knew at that point it wasn't sink or swim, he would help me along if I needed it. I worked twice as hard for him because I never wanted to let him down or embarrass him in any way. After all, I was his first promotion. My name is Harvey Whitehead. Don Weaver will live on in the stories I remember and tell others. He was head and shoulders above the average WD upper management to me. Thank you Don Weaver for helping to kick off my 40 year career at WD.
My husband Mike and I both worked for Don at some point at Winn Dixie (still seems like I should refer to him as Mr. Weaver) in the Tampa Division. Years later Mike ( I was no longer at W.D.) was transferred to Jacksonville and we moved to the same community where the Weaver family was living. We got to know Sandee and Matt and Drew and became friends.It was nice see Don the family man outside the work environment. It was especially fun since I no longer worked W.D. And was friends with Sandee that I could joke around with him and tease him a little without getting in trouble!! Eventually transfers took us all to different places but I feel fortunate to have had that time with the Weaver Family!! We are heartbroken for the loss of this good and decent man . Love and prayers to Sandee and Matt,Jennifer,Drew,Connor and all Don’s family and friends️
I am praying for your family during this time. He has always been always nice and helpful all the years I have been shopping at your store. God bless you and hope to be able continue shopping at deal mart
I was a customer who had a problem at his store in Easley I drove all the way to the Simpsonville store where I was told that he was at I told him the problem I had.he told me w I know you must be telling the truth or you wouldn't have drove this far I was really impressed by his response because he was right. I could not have fed my family without his salvage store when we were going thru a ruff patch and I believe he knew there was a need for his stores.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
