Festival Foods will open its newest store at 2717 Birch Street in Eau Claire on Friday, Dec. 1.

The Birch Street Festival Foods will offer a new meat service case, salad and soup bar, scratch bakery, wine and spirits department and catering services, as well as natural and organic foods and deli options.

The store is part of the grocer’s recent acquisition of three former Gordy’s Market locations—two in Eau Claire and one in Tomah. The Tomah store opened Nov. 10, and the other Eau Claire location will open Dec. 8 at 2615 N Clairemont Avenue.

With the addition of the Birch Street store, Festival Foods will operate 30 locations throughout Wisconsin.

According to Festival Foods President and CEO Mark Skogen, the company looks forward to welcoming new guests in Eau Claire and to offering another option to area shoppers.
