SpartanNash invested $4 million to remodel two Econofoods stores in Dickinson, N.D., and one Sun Mart in West Fargo, N.D., and rebrand them as Family Fare Supermarkets.
During all three ribbon-cutting ceremonies in late August, SpartanNash officials will thank the communities for their support and continued patience during the remodeling, and distribute pallets of backpacks and Our Family brand food to local schools and food pantries that provide families with a hand up during difficult times.
“It is incredible to see everyone’s hard work and collaboration come together as SpartanNash reinvested $4 million in the West Fargo and Dickinson stores to deliver an exceptional shopping experience,” said Dennis Eidson, president of SpartanNash. “Soon these communities will notice much more than just a new sign and name change. Family Fare represents a better shopping experience because we offer the selection, quality, freshness, service and value our customer’s desire. At Family Fare, you’ll find produce, meats and customer service are always fresh; convenience, value and quality are always in stock; and at check out, your total is totally reasonable.”
SpartanNash said it embraces local and state grown/produced products and will build on associates’ commitment to these communities as well as deliver freshness and value.
To celebrate and officially ‘reopen’ the stores, ribbon-cutting ceremonies will held at each new Family Fare location. On Aug. 26, the former Sun Mart store at 1100 13th Ave. E. in West Fargo will reopen as a Family Fare. Two former Econofoods stores in Dickinson will reopen under the Family Fare banner on Aug. 27 at 302 1st St. E. and 446 18th St. W.
“We are proud and committed to supporting our local farmers and food manufacturers,” said Ted Adornato, EVP of retail operations at SpartanNash. “We know how important providing local, regional and state-made products are to our customers. While customers will enjoy many changes with the new stores, two things will remain the same: our friendly associates who are dedicated to serving the West Fargo and Dickinson communities—and our commitment to giving back to the communities where we live, work and play.”
SpartanNash also plans to convert Sun Mart stores at 3175 25th St. S. and 724 University Dr. N. in Fargo and a Moorhead store at 2605 8th St. S. to the Family Fare banner.
SpartanNash currently operates 167 supermarkets, primarily under the banners of Family Fare Supermarkets, D&W Fresh Markets, No Frills, Bag ‘n Save, Sun Mart and Econofoods.
