Vallarta Supermarkets has two great reasons to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. The Hispanic grocery chain is opening two new stores in the Madera and Indio locations in California.
With an investment of more than $ 11 million, Vallarta opened its 60,000-square-foot store at 1467 Country Club Drive in the city of Madera on September 23, employing about 250 people.
Vallarta Supermarkets’ 51st store offers a wide variety of food products and services including: “La Cocina” (Authentic Taqueria and Mexican Cuisine) with delicious recipes of authentic foods and fresh sushi prepared daily by an in-house sushi chef. Customers will also be offered a full-service floral department and an expanded selection of liquor/wine.
The new location in Madera also has a complete department of meat, seafood, fresh agricultural products, cream shop, deli, and bakery.
“We are opening these beautiful stores during Hispanic Heritage Month and being part of the Madera and Indio communities,” said Andrew Lewis, Vice President of Marketing for Vallarta Supermarkets, in a statement sent to Abasto Media. “We will be offering an amazing shopping experience and will work hard to become the preferred supermarket for our new neighbors.”
On October 7th Vallarta Supermarkets Opens in Indio
On October 7, Vallarta Supermarkets will be opening its first store in the city of Indio in Riverside County, at 42425 Jackson St. The 39,434-square-foot supermarket will employ 175 people in the community.
“This is a great addition to the city of Indio for several reasons, particularly for all residents who live north of the highway,” said Brooke Beare, director of communications and marketing for the city of Indio, according to local media.
“Hopefully, those are jobs that will go not only to Indio residents but also to people in the surrounding communities,” Beare said.
Like the new Madera store, the town of Indio will have departments of meat, seafood, fresh agricultural products, tortilla shop, taqueria, Mexican cuisine, cream shop, deli, bakery, and liquor store.
“The city of Indio is honored to welcome Vallarta Supermarkets into the Indio business family,” Mayor Glenn Miller told Uken Report. “This 37,000-plus-square-foot specialty grocery store will also feature a full-service restaurant and bar. The Vallarta Supermarket is the exact type of shopping experience our residents are asking for and the City of Indio is attracting.”
The inauguration of the two stores will be carried out with all the health safety standards and social distancing due to the coronavirus. The use of masks is mandatory for customers entering supermarkets to do their shopping.
Vallarta Supermarkets is a family business founded in 1985 and now has 50 stores in Southern California and the Central Valley, which employ about 8,000 people. The store chain’s goal is to open 30 new stores by 2030, with an average of three supermarkets each year, according to the company on its website.
