The United Family debuted a new United Supermarkets location with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and store tour May 23 in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Opened to the public on May 24, this store marks the company’s fourth location in the city, in addition to a location in nearby Burkburnett.
Now the 98th location for The United Family, this store is a continuation of the evolution of its flagship banner — a “next-generation” United Supermarkets. It will show off a wider selection of products and services along with an updated look.
“We are so excited and proud to be opening this new location in the Wichita Falls community,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family.
“It is beautiful, spacious and full of some of the best United Supermarkets has to offer its guests. Not to mention, it is especially meaningful to our company to put a United Supermarkets store in this neighborhood and bring commerce back to an empty building.”
Some of the new features in the store include a sushi bar, a wide selection of beer and wine with a special section dedicated to Texas beers and a streetside grocery pick-up and delivery, as well as a bakery, floral department, meat counter and a pharmacy with a drive through window.
“This United Supermarkets location will bring with it an incredible product selection from its meat and seafood to its beer and wine,” Hopper said.
“Guests who are familiar with our Market Street banner will feel right at home in this store.”
Mitchell Veitenheimer, director for the new store, said in addition to the wide product selection, guests can “still count on the same service they have come to expect from a United Supermarkets.”
“As a store director, it is my job to help accommodate every guest’s needs when they step foot in this store,” Veitenheimer said.
“I promise this store has a lot of new things to offer, but I also promise that this team will do their best to make it special every day. We are proud to serve this part of the Wichita Falls community.”
