The community of Suncrest, just a few miles northwest of Spokane now has a new option for groceries. This with the opening of a new Rosauers Supermarket on the town's South side. The grand opening will happen soon but I'm hearing the store is already open for business.
Below is a press release from Rosauers re: this new store:
SPOKANE, WA November 26, 2014 -- Rosauers Supermarkets will celebrate the grand opening of its newest store at the corner of Highway 291 and Swensen Road in Suncrest, Washington on Wednesday, December 3. Ribbon Cutting is slated for 9:00am.
"We're excited about our new concept store designed to serve smaller communities" said Jeff Philipps, President of Rosauers. "While smaller, there is an incredible offering of traditional, specialty, ethnic, natural and organic products throughout the store," Philipps added.
Also featured will be a full service meat and seafood counter, bakery and large service-deli featuring a seating area with a fireplace and free Wi-Fi. The store will offer an extensive wine, beer and spirits department. Something new for the company is the addition of a fuel center which will be included in the Commercial Fueling Network (CFN).
The store has hired 50 employees, mostly from the Suncrest/Nine Mile Falls area.
Rosauers is headquartered in Spokane and operates stores in Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. Rosauers is a wholly owned subsidiary of URM Stores, a wholesale cooperative located in Spokane. The addition of the Suncrest store will bring the total number of Rosauers company locations to 22.
