It seems like just yesterday when we broke ground and began construction on our new store in Suamico/Howard. So, I thought it would be fitting for me to write a quick blog about the new store before it opens.
On Friday, October 8th at 6:00 am we will open the doors on our fourteenth Skogen’s Festival Foods store. It is always such a thrill to see our months of hard work and planning pay off when we open those doors and greet the first wave of guests. Even though Festival Foods has three other stores in the Green Bay area and many of the guests that will shop at the new store already know of us, we never take your business for granted.
The 225 associates that will work in the new store have been training at our other locations and are ready to make sure you have an enjoyable shopping experience! We’ve listened to your feedback and can’t wait for you to see the new features we’ve incorporated into this store. You can expect to see things like a customer-friendly layout for the deli case, a snazzy new salad bar and hot bar complete with a comfortable seating area, and “green” additions like skylights, refrigerator case doors and LED motion sensor lights.
This new store also gives us the opportunity to form new relationships in the communities of Suamico and Howard and get involved with their local celebrations, schools, and food pantries. Building relationships and giving back to the community always has been – and always will be – what is important to Festival Foods. We are so grateful for the encouraging words we’ve received from guests that live in the area and look forward to serving you from our newest Festival Foods location.
Hope to see you there on Friday!
