Save Mart Opens a Flagship Store in Modesto
MODESTO, CA - A brand-new Save Mart has graced Modesto. This 54,000-square-foot flagship store has local at its heart, bringing in farm stand-style produce, varieties of freshly-made options, and innovative new products that shoppers will be dying to see.
“Modesto is more than where we are, it’s who we are,” stated Nicole Pesco, CEO of The Save Mart Companies. “We’re family-owned with deep roots and longstanding friendships with local ranchers, farmers, and producers who help fulfill our vision every day. It means a lot to us to be part of this neighborhood because this is where we grew up and are now raising our own families. We’re proud of our hometown and the hardworking people who live here.”
Taking farm-to-fork to heart, the new Save Mart is a bounty of local fare. Shoppers will immediately notice the products from local purveyors, including Fiscalini cheese, Ratto Bros. produce, Rosie’s Donuts, Diamond Almonds, and Dust Bowl beer.
“Save Mart’s new state-of-the-art supermarket will not only serve the local community by providing fresh wholesome food, but will provide great jobs to local residents,” said Dave White, Executive Director of Opportunity Stanislaus, the leading non-profit organization committed to improving the economic vitality of the region. “The Save Mart Companies plays a unique role in Stanislaus County with its headquarters here and the company’s commitment to sourcing products from local growers and purveyors to their network of 207 stores.”
According to a company press release, Modesto’s new Save Mart store will also serve as an innovation center for the company, which operates 207 stores throughout California and Northern Nevada under the banners of FoodMaxx, Lucky, and Save Mart.
