UNFI Acquires Three Former Locations, Reinvests In Remodels


United Natural Foods has announced it is reacquiring three former store locations which had previously been sold and will remodel two current store locations. These remodels and store acquisitions will improve the shopping experience for customers in the Baltimore and Prince George’s County communities who have relied on Shoppers’ stores for more than 70 years.

Two of the new Shoppers stores, located at 4801 Marlboro Pike in Capitol Heights, Maryland, and 5600 The Alameda in Baltimore, Maryland, opened Sept. 30, and the third, located at 7051 M.L. King Highway, Landover, Maryland, will open in November.

To celebrate the new store openings, Shoppers hosted official grand opening celebrations, which included sampling, giveaways, special promotions and remarks from local dignitaries and Shoppers store leadership. Shoppers commemorated the event with a $1,000 donation to Bradbury Heights Elementary School in Capitol Heights and Northwood Elementary School in Baltimore.

“Shoppers has a long-standing relationship with these communities, and we are excited to return to these neighborhoods and support residents with exemplary service and products of the highest quality, including fresh produce, meat, seafood and everyday grocery items,” said Jeff Bleichner, VP and general manager at Shoppers.

“These stores, along with our customer-first improvements at our Silver Hill and Donnell Street locations, reflect our commitment to invest in our communities to improve the health and quality of life of our customers through nutritious and delicious product offerings and friendly and attentive service.”

In October, Shoppers is scheduled to complete the stores located at 5820 Silver Hill Road and 2950 Donnell Street in Forestville, Maryland. The remodels include updated refrigerated and frozen cases, self-checkout lanes and new signage.

“Prince George’s County welcomes Shoppers’ reinvestment in our communities and continued commitment to the retail sale of groceries,” said David Iannucci, president and CEO of the Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation.

“These reacquired and remodeled stores will help address the challenges faced by many citizens to gain access to quality food and fresh produce alternatives. While Shoppers never left Prince George’s County, we say ‘Welcome Back.’”

Serving the Washington D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia markets, Shoppers offers thousands of grocery and household items, such as fresh produce, meat and seafood, deli and bakery, and natural and organic food products available in-store, online and through the Shoppers app.
