Big Y Foods Inc. will officially open its first wholly owned Big Y Express Gas & Convenience store, in Pittsfield, Mass., next to its World Class Market there, on Thursday, May 7. The Springfield, Mass.-based grocer operates another fuel and convenience Big Y Express location, which opened in Lee, Mass., in 2013, as a joint venture with F.L. Roberts & Co.
Within the 1,574-square-foot store, offerings include doughnuts, pastries and fresh-baked muffins and cookies, along with fresh fruits, gourmet sandwiches, hot soups, salads, hot pizza, and snack items in convenient cup packaging. Among the beverage options are Green Mountain Coffee, a fresh-ground gourmet coffee machine that makes lattes and cappuccinos to order, a range of cold and hot teas, iced coffee, fountain sodas, a multiflavor soda machine, and the F’Real milk shake machine, which makes real milkshakes in a variety of flavors.
Shoppers can also purchase Big Y label milk, bread, candy, snacks, tobacco products, lottery, ice and even propane. What's more, Big Y’s Silver Savings Club members get a 5-cent-per-gallon discount with their membership cards.
For the opening ceremony, company reps will cut the traditional ribbon, thus beginning a month-long celebration that will feature free products and discounts.
"We are always looking to bring our customers even more!" said Big Y President and COO Charles L. D'Amour, noting that the new location would "not only help our customers save on their fueling needs, but also make life easier by offering convenience items that our customers can grab on the run. This is especially important given the hectic lives and schedules we all lead! Big Y Express showcases our expertise in food and service along with new fuel savings for all."
Big Y Express is open from 5 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Family-owned and –operated Big Y, one of the largest independently owned supermarket chains in New England, has 63 stores throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts, with more than 10,000 employees.
