Bravo Supermarkets is opening a new, larger location at 402 South Main St. in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
The new Bravo Supermarket will feature 16,000 square feet of a reimagined supermarket grocery experience for Wilkes-Barre and the surrounding communities. Doors will open for the celebration on Sept. 1 at 10 a.m., welcoming customers with music, food samples and a fully stocked and staffed store.
The new Wilkes-Barre Bravo location is part of the ongoing expansion outside the traditional Metro New York neighborhoods where the brand was first established in 1975. Founded as true “neighborhood supermarkets,” all Bravo locations are independently-owned and -operated, giving each store the freedom and flexibility to customize the shopping experience for local communities.
The Wilkes-Barre Bravo Supermarket will acquire the largest selection of international food items in the area to date.
“I am very excited and proud to be opening a larger Bravo location,” said Jhon Marquez, store owner. “It just goes to show how successful we’ve been, and we’re thankful to the Wilkes-Barre community for supporting us and continuing to support us in the new, larger store.”
Customers can expect hot food to be served daily, along with deli, bakery, meat, fresh produce, dairy and frozen departments. This Bravo location will also offer a larger selection of organic items, as well as Hispanic and multicultural foods.
“We are proud to support Jhon Marquez and his team at this new and larger Bravo location,” said Dennis Wallin, EVP of new business development at Alpha 1 Marketing, the in-house marketing agency that supports the Bravo brand.
“It’s a good thing when you need to expand the store, because Bravo has been so well-received by the Wilkes-Barre community. We are confident that this bigger Bravo store will also be very successful and look forward to the continued support of the people of Wilkes-Barre.”
Since establishing the banner in 1991, in New York City, Bravo Supermarkets has grown throughout the Northeastern United States and expanded into the Florida market in 2003.
