MOM’s Organic Market, Maryland’s homegrown organic grocery company, is scheduled to complete its College Park store’s substantial remodeling and expansion project on August 19.
The store is located at 9827 Rhode Island Ave. and will host a Renovation Celebration on August 19th, 20th and 21st to commemorate the store’s improved space and to thank its patrons and vendors for their patience during the remodeling process.
The College Park venue opened in August 2000 and was the second store launched by MOM’s Organic Market. Although several real estate experts cautioned against opening in Prince George’s County, Scott Nash, MOM’s founder, grew up two miles from the location and knew the community would support an organic store.
The store’s selection of 100 percent organic produce, organic and natural dairy items, bulk foods, local organic meats, raw foods, 100 percent sustainable seafood choices, pet products, gluten-free foods, and environmentally friendly household products was well received by the neighborhood and though the College Park store is the smallest of the company’s seven stores, it generates more revenue per square foot than any other location.
The long awaited renovation will give the store forty percent more shelf space with wider aisles and a greater selection of all natural and organic products. The newly remodeled store will uphold MOM’s mission to protect and restore the environment by using LED track lighting throughout the store and low VOC paint. Its entire line of energy efficient close- door refrigerators and freezers will also use LED lights. The redesigned store will have skylights and an electric car charging station and will use 100 percent wind power.
The Renovation Celebration will commence during regular store hours throughout the weekend. Customers will be given goody bags, have a chance to try local vendor demos, participate in kids’ activities, enter raffle drawings and try tasty food samples.
