Logan, UT, 2016-Aug-26 — /EPR Retail News/ — Lee’s Marketplace is coming to Heber City. The locally owned grocer announced today (AUGUST 24, 2016) that it plans to purchase Day’s Market in Heber City and transition the store to a Lee’s Marketplace. The sale is expected to be finalized on September 26, 2016.

“We are excited to bring Lee’s to the Heber community and are looking forward to getting to know our new shoppers,” said Jonathan Badger, president of Lee’s Marketplace. “We have the deepest respect for Day’s Market and have worked with them for years as members of Associated Food Stores.”

Badger anticipates a smooth transition of the 40,000 square-foot store. Lee’s is committed to ensuring guests continue to receive excellent customer service and quality products at the Heber City store. Guests can expect to find their favorite products throughout the store including freshest produce, scratch bakery, designer floral and in-store butcher. Lee’s plans to add more organic produce and specialty foods throughout the store as well. The pharmacy will continue to care for existing and new patients without disruption. As part of Lee’s commitment to a smooth change, the store will remain open during the transition.

Lee’s Marketplace currently has three stores in Logan, Smithfield and North Ogden, with a fourth store under construction in North Salt Lake that is expected to open later this fall.
