Fareway Hosts Ribbon Cutting Ceremony For Store In Ogden, IA

Fareway

Fareway Stores hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony Nov. 15 for a store at 302 West Walnut St. in Ogden, Iowa.

The store has Fastlanes, a self-service checkout option, and online ordering with curbside pickup available. Customers can save on their first online order by using the code, “OGDENFIVE,” to realize a $5 discount available through Dec. 31.

The 8,700-square-foot store will also provide fresh meat from its butcher counter and farm-fresh produce.

“We are excited to open this new, downtown Ogden store and want to thank local officials and the State of Iowa who helped make this project possible,” said Reynolds W. Cramer, CEO.

“Communities depend on a local grocer to offer high quality products and unmatched service and help keep Iowa communities vibrant. We look forward to serving area residents and serving as their go-to neighborhood grocery store.”

Mark Trueblood, Ogden mayor, said, “We are truly thankful that Fareway chose Ogden for the site of a new store – it is great to have a full-service grocery store back in town. We appreciate the L.A. Good Trust Board, Ogden Municipal Utilities, Ogden Telephone Co., and our local and state economic development groups for supporting this project.”

Craig Christensen, Ogden legacy president, agreed, “The entire Ogden community is thrilled to have Fareway in our town. We appreciate the relationship built with Fareway, and the support from all the dedicated individuals and groups to come together to accomplish such big goals that benefit our community.”

The new store will be managed by Quentin Holder, grocery manager, and Nathan Campbell, market manager. The store is open to the public from 8 a.m.-9 p.m.

“The Boone County Chamber of Commerce is honored to welcome a new Fareway store to downtown Ogden,” said Mike Hammond, Boone County chamber of commerce executive director.

“This store is a shining example of public-private partnership at its best. We commend company leadership, local and state officials, and the community visionaries who brought this project to life, and we look forward to seeing both Fareway and the city of Ogden continue to grow in the years to come.”
