Bashas' Opens First New Grocery Store in Ten Years
SANDERS, ARIZONA - Guess who’s back in the house? With a new store location click-clackin’ about, local grocery chain Bashas’ is back to disrupting the Southwest market. Last week, the grocer opened its first newly built store in a decade, which upped its store count on the Navajo Nation to eight, according to KTAR News.
The new store will operate under Bashas’ Diné Market banner, the retailer’s grocery store brand for Arizona’s Native American reservations, according to the news source. The store is 16,000 square feet and offers signage in the native language and products like fresh mutton and Navajo tacos made with traditional fry bread, according to KJZZ.
In a company press release, Bashas’ noted that the newest location joins 10 others under the Diné Market banner in the state of Arizona. Bashas’ also operates over 100 stores in Arizona and one in New Mexcio under its Bashas’, Diné Market, AJ’s Fine Foods, and Food City banners.
