New location fills the need for fresh food offerings in the community
Fair Oaks, CA, 2017-Jun-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — Raley’s advances their strategic growth plan with a new ground-up store opening today at the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Douglas Road in Rancho Cordova, California. The 40,000-square-foot store offers fresh, high quality and healthy products in a format tailored to complement the local community. It marks the second new store Raley’s has opened in 2017 and provides residents with a much-needed full-service grocery store in a previously underserved area.
The Rancho Cordova store will offer fresh grocery items, an extensive selection of grab-and-go prepared foods, and a full-service deli, sushi and bakery department. This new store extends Raley’s vision to infuse life with health and happiness, and offers an extensive variety of natural and organic products, including an expanded probiotics section and more than 200 organic product items. Customers can expect high-quality products at affordable prices.
“We developed this store for customers who seek healthy food at affordable prices and an easy shopping experience,” said Keith Knopf, Raley’s President & Chief Operating Officer. “From freshly prepared food, to the inviting seating area, we hope this new modern store is a destination for the Rancho Cordova Community.”
Raley’s eCart service will be available at the new location, allowing customers to shop online and pick-up in-store. As an extension of Raley’s commitment to world class customer service, eCart customers can specify their produce/shopping preferences, which are hand-selected by a Raley’s e-commerce personal shopper.
