Modesto, Calif., 2016-Sep-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Save Mart Companies has acquired the Food Source store located at 7477 Watt Avenue in North Highlands. The Company will move its FoodMaxx store at 8065 Watt Avenue in Antelope to the new location, just a mile down the street. Food Source will close September 24. So as not to leave the community without a low price, value grocery store, the FoodMaxx store in Antelope will remain open until the grand opening of the new North Highlands location on October 12.
“The North Highlands location provides FoodMaxx a broader reach in this neighborhood—and I think shoppers will love our new look and feel,” said Frank Capps, General Manager of FoodMaxx, one of the brands operated by The Save Mart Companies.
All team members at the current FoodMaxx location will move to the North Highlands store. The North Highlands community should continue to see some of their favorite Foods Source faces, as the new FoodMaxx store will need 20-30 more employees. The Company hopes to hire from the current Food Source team.
All 52 FoodMaxx stores have recently been rebranded with a fresh new look, layout and fixtures. The North Highlands location will also have these same new features, while offering our signature bargain prices for name-brand products.
In mid-November, FoodMaxx will enter the Northern Nevada market for the first time with a new store in both Carson City and Sparks.
