Ontario, California-based Hispanic grocer Cardenas Markets is opening four new stores in Nevada, California and Arizona in 2019.
The first of these is a store in Las Vegas that opened in early May. It is the company’s fifth store in Las Vegas and the 56th store for the grocer overall. The other Cardenas Markets that are planned are located in Concord and Victorville, California, and Tucson, Arizona.
The Las Vegas store features the grocer’s “Next Generation” concept that will set the standard for all of Cardenas’ new stores moving forward. This new design is intended to elevate the customer experience and increase the grocer’s reach across all demographics. Part of creating the “familiar and welcoming place” are music, friendly service and a wide assortment of “outstanding products” ranging from national brands to authentic Mexican and Hispanic foods, according to the company.
“We are thrilled to introduce our new ‘Keep Life Flavorful’ design to our customers across all of our existing markets, as well as new markets that we are considering,” says John Gomez, Cardenas CEO.
Under the leadership of industry veteran Bob Layne, SVP of real estate and construction, Cardenas Markets says it is “poised and prepared to deliver on its aggressive expansion plans.”
Cardenas Markets LLC operates 49 stores under the Cardenas banner and seven stores under the Los Altos Ranch Market banner. It is one of the largest Hispanic grocers in the country with stores in California, Arizona and Nevada.
“We are not just a grocery store; we are more like your family serving you,” Cardenas says. “If you are looking for fresh meats and carne asada simply walk into our meat department. Great quality and variety at a great value is what you will find in the produce department, where we offer traditional flavors, fruits and vegetables from across USA, Mexico, Central America and South America and other different countries.”
