McKINNEY (Oct. 2, 2013) – Grand opening celebrations were held Tuesday for the new Super 1 Foods located at 208 N. Central Expressway. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at 10 a.m. and featured Chamber of Commerce President Jodi Ann LaFreniere Ray, McKinney Mayor Pro Tem Travis Ussery and Brookshire Grocery Co. President and CEO Rick Rayford. Store Director Jeff Clagg presented donation checks totaling $1,000 each to The Community Food Pantry of McKinney, Children and Community Health Center and The Kiwanis Club of McKinney.
The 40,900-square-foot store features a new storefront, modern and sleek décor and new carousel-style check stands. Other features include a new customer service office and the signature Wall of Values section, located at the entrance of the store, which displays pallets of value-priced, high-quality products. New equipment was installed throughout to reduce energy usage and improve efficiency, including durable, polished concrete flooring that reduces the amount of cleaning agents used.
“We have been serving the McKinney community for more than 30 years, and we are happy to provide an updated, state-of-the-art shopping experience for our valued customers,” Rayford said. “Transitioning this facility to a Super 1 Foods store has allowed us to expand our selection and offer more value to our customers. We look forward to a very successful future here in McKinney.”
The grand opening festivities will continue throughout the following weeks with special giveaways and promotions. More special offers will be announced in the weekly grocery ads.
