Lee’s Marketplace is expanding to Heber City, Utah. The locally owned grocer plans to purchase Day’s Market in Heber City and transition the store to a Lee’s Marketplace. The sale is expected to be finalized on Sept. 26.
“We are excited to bring Lee’s to the Heber community and are looking forward to getting to know our new shoppers,” said Jonathan Badger, president of Lee’s Marketplace. “We have the deepest respect for Day’s Market and have worked with them for years as members of Associated Food Stores.”
Badger says he anticipates a smooth transition of the 40,000-s.f. store and notes that Lee’s is committed to ensuring guests continue to receive excellent customer service and quality products at the Heber City store. Guests can expect to find their favorite products throughout the store, including fresh produce, scratch bakery, designer floral and in-store butcher. Lee’s plans to add more organic produce and specialty foods throughout the store as well. The pharmacy will continue to care for existing and new patients without disruption. As part of Lee’s commitment to a smooth change, the store will remain open during the transition, according to the company.
Lee’s Marketplace currently has three stores in Logan, Smithfield and North Ogden, with a fourth store under construction in North Salt Lake that is expected to open this fall.
