Community-based independent Alfalfa’s Market plans to open a new 27,800-square-foot store that will anchor Center Court Village, a mixed-use residential and retail center in Louisville, Colo., slated to open in April 2014. It will be the Boulder, Colo.-based independent’s second store.
“We have received a tremendous outpouring of support from the Louisville community,” said Mark Retzloff, president and co-founder of Alfalfa’s. “In fact, earlier this year when the developers were trying to woo a retail store for Center Court Village, more than 600 Louisville residents sent me personal letters – many including alfalfa seeds – asking Alfalfa’s to open a store in their community.”
The Louisville Alfalfa’s store will be similar in size to the company’s original store, which opened April 2011. The focus will be on organic, non-GMO natural foods and locally grown produce and products. It will include a produce department that is 90 percent organic, as well as extensive meat, seafood and cheese and charcuterie departments featuring naturally and sustainably raised items. Additionally, the store will have a large eat-in café and outdoor space, as well as a coffee bar, organic juice bar, hot and cold prepared foods, in-house scratch bakery, sushi station run by local favorite Sushi Zanmai, and an organic salad and soup bar.
By opening a second store in the fast-growing community, Alfalfa’s expects to provide greater convenience to Boulder County residents by serving Louisville, as well as east Boulder, Lafayette and Erie.
