SAN FRANCISCO - Mollie Stone’s Markets, a regional retailer that provides a wide array of specialty foods along with essential grocery items, has acquired its eighth San Francisco Bay Area store at the site of the former Tower Market here.
"Tower Market will be our second store in San Francisco, and we are extremely excited to expand in the city," said Mollie Stone’s co-owner David Bennett in a statement. "Tower Market is one of the finest independent grocery stores in Northern California; we feel it will be a great blend with our Mollie Stone’s culture. We plan on learning what the customer’s needs and wants are as we continue with the current remodeling plans that are under way. We understand the passion and commitment in the neighborhood for one of San Francisco’s oldest grocery stores, and we want to keep up the pride and excitement of the family-owned business."
Mollie Stone’s officials were unavailable for further comment.
The Tower Market location joins seven other Bay area Mollie Stone’s in Sausalito, Greenbrae, San Francisco (Pacific Heights), Palo Alto, San Mateo, Burlingame, and San Bruno. Mollie Stone’s began in the natural foods and organic food market in 1985 and has cross-merchandised these products into regular grocery choices to maximize customer convenience. Mollie’s carries a complete selection, from national brand groceries, dairy, deli, and frozen food to natural beef and organic produce.
"In this day and age, when large chains and warehouse stores are all vying for the cheapest prices and the least amount of service, Mollie Stone’s is filling the void for old-style hometown quality, selection, and service," added Bennett. "We specialize in catering to customers who need extra attention, hard-to-find products, or those who simply need help or assistance. Mollie Stone’s still treats customers one at a time."
