Fresh Encounter Inc., grocery management company for Needler’s Fresh Market, will be opening its new Needler’s location at 4755 E 126th St. in Carmel, Indiana, on Aug. 20.
“We appreciate the enthusiasm of shoppers in Carmel who are wanting an independent, full-service, convenient grocery store on Carmel’s east side” said Julie Needler Anderson, marketing director. “Our roots are in Indiana, so we are very excited to expand in the greater Indianapolis area.”
The fully remodeled store will offer a modern, conventional format with a focus on fresh, quality and service. Needler’s will feature an enhanced assortment of Indiana local and signature items like handcrafted pizza, homemade cookies and donuts, and a fresh chop shop where customers can have fresh prepared salads made to order. The store also will include a coffee shop, Lemon’s Café, which serves locally roasted Hubbard and Cravens coffee, Rosie’s baked goods and Oberweiss Dairy ice cream.
“Our goal is to make the Carmel store the friendliest and freshest offering in the market, where customers can find all of their local favorites and many new ones,” said Store Director Kyle Jorns. “We may not be the biggest, but we can definitely be the best.”
The store will open with a grand event at 10 a.m. on Aug. 20, including music, chef prepared samples and a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m.
“We are delighted to introduce Carmel to our new store and look forward to welcoming guests,” said Anderson.
