The Fresh Market Inc., the North Carolina-based specialty grocery retailer, will open two new stores in the Sacramento area this month.
On Sept. 18, The Fresh Market will open its store in the Laguna Crossroads Shopping Center, 7707 Laguna Blvd., in Elk Grove. Grand-opening ceremonies are set for Sept. 25 for the store at 2339 Fair Oaks Boulevard in Sacramento.
The two stores, each employing about 80 to 90 workers, will represent half of the chains presence in California.
We are excited to open our new stores ... and to expand our reach in California, said Craig Carlock, company president and CEO. We look forward to introducing The Fresh Markets concept of quality perishables, excellent customer service and a unique atmosphere to an expanded customer base, and we look forward to offering neighboring communities a rewarding new food shopping experience.
Doors will open at 8:00 a.m. on the respective opening days of the two local stores. Multiple festivities and giveaways are planned.
Founded in 1982, The Fresh Market Inc. currently operates 139 stores in 26 states.
