North Highlands, CA, 2016-Oct-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — FoodMaxx opened a bigger store in the Sacramento suburb of North Highlands today (Oct 17, 2016). The new location at 7477 Watt Avenue offers approximately 10,000 square feet more than the former location a mile away in Antelope. Mike Flowers has been named Store Manager. In addition to bringing all employees over from the Antelope location to the new store, Flowers has hired about 30 more people.
“FoodMaxx is committed to meeting the needs of a community that wants more deals to stretch its food dollar,” said Frank Capps, General Manager of FoodMaxx, one of the brands operated by The Save Mart Companies. “The bigger space allows us to bring in more products at amazingly low prices.”
To highlight FoodMaxx’s commitment to the area, the store made a donation to its adopted school, North Country Elementary, and to Creative Connections Arts Academy. Each will receive $500.
The Community is invited to attend our Family Fun Day, which includes games, prizes, food sampling and mascot visits.
