FoodMaxx opens bigger store in Sacramento suburb of North Highlands

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.

The Grand Opening comes just as FoodMaxx celebrates its 30th anniversary. Its first store debuted in October of 1986 in Bakersfield. The brand stands 52 stores strong today with two more slated to open in Carson City and Sparks later this year, as FoodMaxx enters the Northern Nevada marketplace for the first time.

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.
