The Fresh Market will open two new stores Wednesday, one in Metairie, Louisiana, and another in Smithtown, New York. Both mark the North Carolina-based specialty grocer’s fifth store in each state.

The more than 23,000-s.f. Metairie store is located at 755 Veterans Memorial Boulevard in the Wilshire Plaza shopping center and the more than 24,000-s.f. Smithtown store is located at 138 East Main Street in the Branch Plaza shopping center.

“We are excited to open our new store(s) in Metairie (and) Smithtown and to expand our reach in Louisiana (and) New York,” said Sean Crane, the company’s interim CEO. “We look forward to introducing The Fresh Market’s concept of quality, great tasting food, excellent customer service and a distinctive atmosphere to an expanded customer base, and we look forward to offering neighboring communities an inspiring new food shopping experience.”

Both stores feature a bakery that produces 30 freshly baked breads and 14 different pie varieties daily, a full-service meat counter with freshly ground beef, a wide selection of ready-to-serve entrées, fresh seafood delivered to the store several times per week and more than 200 imported and domestic cheeses, as well as a produce department with more than 400 items and a large organic selection.

“The Fresh Market’s atmosphere is truly unique,” said Crane. “Our customers enjoy shopping in an environment that appeals to all the senses, where the smell of freshly brewed coffee and bread right out of the oven, the sound of relaxing music, soft lighting and the ability to select and taste fresh, high-quality products all work together to create a place where customers are inspired to make every meal extraordinary.”

Each store is expected to create 90 new jobs, most of which are being filled locally, according to the grocer.

The Fresh Market operates more than 170 stores in 27 states across the U.S.
