Market Street today said that it has finalized plans for the construction of its new store in Flower Mound, its seventh location in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The store will be part of The River Walk at Central Park development, at the northeast corner of Crosstimbers Rd. and Prairie Rd., according to Tony Crumpton, executive VP of facilities, fuel and supply for United Supermarkets, LLC, Market Street’s parent company. “We anticipate site work and construction will begin before the end of the year, with hopes of a fall 2013 opening,” Crumpton said.
The new location will be noticeably different from its sister stores in the Metroplex. At 55,000 square feet, the store will be slightly smaller than any other Market Street location, in addition to sporting a completely new look inside. Two other significant changes will be apparent once guests enter – the “fresh from the farm” produce department at the front of the store, and a large casual dining area, complete with indoor-outdoor seating.
“We are taking the best of our 70,000-square-foot stores and bringing into a smaller footprint – merchandising from a guest perspective,” said Wes Jackson, chief merchandising officer of United Supermarkets, LLC. “Although we might not have as wide a selection in terms of size and flavors, we think we will still have a very good variety for meeting our guests’ everyday needs.”
Jackson added that the store’s offering of organic, natural, specialty, body care and supplements “will be an entirely new presentation that will offer the widest variety of any of our stores.”
Lubbock, Texas-based United Supermarkets operates 10 Market Street stores throughout Texas, including six DFW area locations: in Allen, Colleyville, Coppell, Frisco, McKinney and Plano.
