Rouses Markets Opens 55th Store In Baton Rouge Shopping Center

Rouses new Baton Rouge store.

On Wednesday, Nov. 15, Rouses Markets opened its 55th store, this one in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, at the Bluebonnet Village Shopping Center at the northwest corner of Bluebonnet Boulevard and Perkins Road (7580 Bluebonnet Boulevard).

The company has made a $3 million investment in upgrades since taking over the space in May.

Along with conventional, organic and specialty groceries, the new store features a full-service bakery, full deli, seafood market, butcher shop, floral shop and an emphasis on prepared foods. Its selection of fresh food includes a BBQ Chop Shop; a hot line serving breakfast, lunch and dinner; a fresh soup and salad bar; a fresh sushi station; and a chef’s case featuring Rouses signature offerings.

“Baton Rouge residents have been asking us to build more stores in the area, and we feel like this shopping center has been underserved,” says Donny Rouse, CEO, third generation. “This is a family friendly neighborhood. There are a lot of popular restaurants nearby. It’s a great location for us all the way around.”

Rouses Markets operates 46 stores in Louisiana. The company’s remaining eight stores are located in Mississippi and Lower Alabama. Four Rouses Markets are undergoing renovation this year, including the Rouses Market in Hammond, Louisiana. That location was acquired from LeBlanc’s Food Stores in August of last year. Rouses Markets also says it is exploring new stores in the three states where it operates.

The company acquired the nine LeBlanc’s Food stores and Frais Marchés in the Baton Rouge area in 2016.
