The store opened to the public on Aug. 1, with a celebratory ribbon-cutting with Store Director Russell Blais and CEO Rick Roche. Town Manager Rene Read, Duxbury selectmen David J. Madigan and Shawn Dahlen, State Senator Patrick O’Connor and State Representative Josh Cutler were in attendance.
“We have been so touched by the warm welcome we are receiving from the town,” said Rick Roche, co-owner and CEO of Roche Bros. “Local residents have been stopping by the store during construction to peek in the windows and have shared their excitement with us at the Duxbury Music Festival and other local events. I hope our new neighborhood market becomes a fixture of this historic town and a favorite shopping and dining experience for the community.”
The 20,000-s.f. market offers customers a selection of fresh foods, local and specialty products, prepared meals and grocery essentials. Shoppers will find a salad bar, hot grab-and-go meals and prepared foods, made-to-order sandwiches and sushi rolled and hand cut by Yummi Sushi chefs. Customers will also find a wide selection of natural and antibiotic-free meats and a live lobster tank.
The market is open Monday-Saturday from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
