Lin’s Fields on Mall Drive to open in early 2016

St George, UT, 2015-8-10— /EPR Retail News/ — Associated Food Stores’ retail-owned grocery store, Lin’s Fresh Market, will open their fifth location, Lin’s Fields on Mall Drive (2928 E Mall Drive) in St. George Utah. The new location, a 52,300 square foot store, is tentatively set to open in early 2016.

A ground-breaking celebration took place with representatives from Associated Food Stores, America First Credit Union, St George City officials and multiple construction/planning companies Friday morning at the site location.

“The groundbreaking ceremony allows us to celebrate the beginning of our development and the start of construction, as well as thank many of our partners for their assistance in making the dream of this new Lin’s Fresh Market a reality, “said Bill Walley, director of construction, Associated Food Stores.

The new, upscale store will offer the finest fresh produce, meats prepared from a butcher block, a scratch bakery and state-of-the-art meal solutions. A fresh food kiosk will feature sandwiches and pizza cooked to order, a Starbucks and a Dairy Queen. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy all of these options in a  beautifully decorated glass atrium with abundant seating, USB power outlets and wi-fi access.

“Our vision for Lin’s Fields on Mall Drive is simple. We want to provide the best shopping experience around. Just as in our other Lin’s locations—we are most pleased to offer the best, good old-fashioned customer service that you’d expect from your local neighborhood grocery store. We are thrilled about the opportunity to serve St. George and Washington City and look forward to opening the store in early 2016,” said Associated Retail Operations Vice President Troy Thomas.

The first Lin’s grocery store opened in 1955 in Cedar City. The opening of the Mall Drive Lin’s will bring the store total to five locations: Cedar City, St. George, Hurricane and Overton, Nevada.
