The Fresh Market Shutters Five Stores; Plans to Open Stores in Columbia and Doral, Fla., Near Miami

The Fresh Market is closing five stores in the coming weeks while continuing its effort to reposition as a more mainstream grocer with the rollout of its new format to additional locations. Stores are closing in Livingston, N.J.; Woodbury, N.Y.; Ashburn, Va.; Altamonte Springs, Fla.; and Kildeer, Ill. Meanwhile The Fresh Market is planning to open a store this April 26, 2017 in Columbia, S.C., that features an updated look and more everyday grocery items alongside the usual assortment of fresh and specialty offerings. The company, which had long positioned itself as an upscale destination for foodies, debuted its revamped positioning in three markets in its home state of North Carolina last year and opened a store with the new approach earlier this year in Boca Raton, Fla. The new and remodeled stores include an increased selection of local items, more traditional grocery offerings, including pet and baby products, and an increased emphasis on sharp pricing, the company said. In addition, new signage is designed to offer better navigation to individual departments and offers guidance for shoppers with dietary restrictions. At the Columbia store, a new Mind & Body department will feature a selection of more than 2,000 vitamins, minerals and supplements, as well as an in-store specialist to answer shopper questions. The Fresh Market is also planning to open a new store in Doral, Fla., near Miami, on May 24, 2017. It will operate about 175 locations after the planned openings and closures.

The Fresh Market Plans to Close 13 Stores

The Fresh Market plans to close 13 stores in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Texas, including its store in Prairiefire in Overland Park and its cafe in the Museum of Prairiefire. The stores are expected to close by May 18.
