A specialty grocer is set to debut its new Butler County location in a few weeks.
The Fresh Market’s new location at 7720 Voice of America Centre Drive is scheduled to open at 9 a.m. Aug. 22, according to a news release.
Fresh Market’s opening means approximately 90 new jobs will be added to the area, the majority of which will be filled locally.
Grand opening activities will include chef demonstrations, food sampling throughout the store, and drawings for The Fresh Market gift cards. A reusable shopping bag and sample-sized bag of the company’s gourmet coffee will be free to the first 1,000 customers.
“We are excited to open our store in West Chester and to expand our reach in Ohio,” said Craig Carlock, the company’s president and chief executive officer. “We look forward to introducing The Fresh Market’s 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.”
Founded in 1982, The Fresh Market operates 121 stores in 24 states. The West Chester Twp. location will be the grocer’s sixth Ohio store. The new location will house more than 23,600 square feet of culinary offerings, including a bakery that produces 30 freshly baked breads and 14 pie varieties daily.
There’s also a full-service meat counter with freshly ground beef, a wide selection of ready-to-serve entrées, fresh seafood delivered to the store several times per week and more than 200 imported and domestic cheeses, as well as a produce department with more than 400 items and a large organic selection.
In addition, the new store will feature a growing number of local products from area growers and producers.
