Raley's Advances Plans for New Flagship Store
WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - Raley’s continues to expand. The grocer recently announced the progress of its new flagship store and neighborhood retail center, which is set to be located at the corner of Freeport Boulevard and Wentworth Avenue in Sacramento, CA. According to a report by The Sacramento Bee, this announcement follows the settlement of a lawsuit and yearlong neighborhood dispute that had formerly prevented the retailer from beginning construction.
“With a strong history of serving this neighborhood, we are pleased to provide our customers with an enhanced food shopping experience and a brand-new store,” said Keith Knopf, President & Chief Executive Officer, in a press release. “We designed this store with the neighborhood in mind—offering specialized design features, fresh food offerings, and personalized customer service.”
A modern day “town and country” center, The Park is being developed by Preserve West Capital and will feature a cluster of smaller buildings with abundant outdoor gathering areas. A new, state-of-the-art Raley’s Market will be the star of the show, extending the Raley’s vision to infuse life with health and happiness. The store will offer an extensive variety of natural and organic products, including fresh grocery items; a full-service deli, sushi, and bakery departments; and grab-and-go prepared foods.
An additional 44,000 square feet is reserved for other shops and restaurants, including Orange Theory Fitness, Supercuts, Pet Food Express, Chase Bank, and CAMP 31—a restaurant operated by the Moana Restaurant Group. More local and regional tenants are set to be announced at a later date.
Prep work for the site is planned to begin later this month, into early April, weather permitting, of course. Remaining structures on the property will be demolished first, followed by an official groundbreaking on May 9, 2019. The center is slated to open to the public in early 2020. The Raley’s location on Freeport will remain open throughout the transition and construction.
