The Kroger Co. has opened its first Main & Vine store, a concept that’s been described as “experimental,” at a former QFC location in Gig Harbor, Washington. The approximately 27,000-s.f Seattle-area store at 5010 Point Fosdick Drive NW debuted Wednesday.
According to its website, “at Main & Vine, we love where we live…the people, places and food that make us who we are. And we love giving back to our community.
“Here, fresh food comes first and flavor brings people together. There’s always a great story behind our food, and we’re happy to share it with you. We want you to connect with what you eat on a whole new level, and we’re making it easier to do with affordable prices throughout the store.
“We also love our planet, and we care about the environment we all share. So we’re committed to using natural resources responsibly and minimizing waste wherever possible.
“…This is Main & Vine…where eating healthy is a way of life.”
The store, which features both fresh foods and mainstream grocery items, also includes a coffee, wine and beer bar at designated times during the day, as well as a two-level café, according to reports.
