FoodMaxx opens store in Carson City, Nevada

Grand opening just in time for holiday meal planning

North Highlands, CA, 2016-Dec-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — Just three weeks after FoodMaxx broke into the Nevada marketplace with its first store in Sparks, the grocery chain opened its second store in the state today (Dec 7, 2016). It’s located at 3325 Highway 50 East in Carson City and offers more than 52,000 square feet of warehouse-style shopping and rock bottom prices on name brand products. Nevada resident, Wayne Cobb, has been named Store Manager and has hired approximately 75 new team members.

“Our first store in Nevada is such a hit, we’re ready to expand. We’re fired up about showing Carson City residents what we’re all about. We bring products in by the truckload. Volume means our shoppers can stretch their food dollar,” said Frank Capps, General Manager of FoodMaxx. “Come do your holiday meal shopping here. You won’t be disappointed.”

To highlight FoodMaxx’s commitment to the community, the store donated $500 to its adopted school, Empire Elementary. Students from the third, fourth and fifth grade sang Christmas songs at the grand opening. Friends in Service Helping (FISH) also received a $500 donation. To encourage shoppers to donate to the Ron Wood Family Resource Center at checkout, the store will match every donation, up to $1,500, from now until December 27th during our Give.Share.CARE! Holiday Drive.

Throughout the year, FoodMaxx donates up to 3% of profits to local schools and organizations enrolled in the Shares powered by eScripprogram. In addition to adopting a school, each store sponsors two kids’ sports teams a year by giving them a cooler full of water and snacks before each game during their season.

The Grand Opening comes just as FoodMaxx celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Its first store debuted in October of 1986 in Bakersfield, CA. The brand today stands 54 stores strong, 52 in California and two in Nevada. FoodMaxx is owned and operated by The Save Mart Companies.

The Save Mart Companies to rebrand Food Source store in North Highlands into FoodMaxx following its acquisition

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.
