United Supermarkets Announces New Location In Wichita Falls, TX

United Supermarkets, joined by city officials and other community representatives, announced a new store in Wichita Falls, Texas. Joining two other United Supermarkets and a Market Street, this will be the fourth United Family store in the city.

Located at 2720 Southwest Parkway, the United Supermarkets store will feature a full-service pharmacy with everything from prescriptions to immunizations and a drive-through window. Another convenience for guests is Streetside, United’s grocery pickup. The store will include a ready meals section; fresh foods which are ready-to-heat, ready-to-eat or ready-to-cook.

In addition to a full-service deli and hot bar, the store will also offer fresh sushi. With an in-store bakery, guests can order custom cakes and find fresh-baked bread and other fresh bakery items. Guests will even be able to order custom cakes and deli trays online for store pick up. An extensive craft beer and wine selection will also be offered.  

Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family, reflected on the relationship between the company and the community, with the first store opening in Wichita Falls almost 60 years ago.

“United first came to Wichita Falls in 1963, and we have greatly enjoyed that partnership,” Hopper said. “Wichita Falls was also the location of the first Market Street in our company back in 1998, and today we are glad to announce that we will open our fourth store at this location. It is a great community to serve.”

The new store will refresh the area’s retail offering and will provide a boost to the local economy and job market. The location expects to add about 200 jobs to the Wichita Falls community.

Also speaking at the announcement was Mayor Pro Tem Bobby Whiteley, reflecting on the investment United Supermarkets continues to make in the community.

“United Supermarkets continues to invest in Wichita Falls, whether it is supporting efforts with the food bank, the arts community or education,” Whiteley said. “Many of our youth have gotten their first job sacking groceries at a United or Market Street store. This new store will bring jobs and expand the commerce in this neighborhood with a completely renovated building. It is great for Wichita Falls.”

In its 106th year of operation, United Supermarkets – also known as The United Family – is a grocery chain with stores in 54 communities in Texas and New Mexico. A self-distributing company with headquarters and distribution centers in Lubbock, Texas, the company operates 96 stores under five banners: United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, Albertsons Market and United Express, along with ancillary operations R.C.
