Grocery Outlet has entered its ninth state with the recent opening of its store in Boardman, Ohio.
The Boardman store will share independent operators Eric and Sarah Senges with a second location in New Castle, Pennsylvania, only 17 miles apart. The couple shares a combined background of more than 30 years in retail, including previously operating a Grocery Outlet location in Lake Elsinore, California.
“We are thrilled to be expanding Grocery Outlet’s footprint and opening a store in Ohio,” said RJ Sheedy, president and CEO.
“Our partnership with the Senges family has proven successful across the country, and I look forward to helping them make high-quality, affordable groceries more accessible to the community.”
The company’s presence in Ohio is representative of Grocery Outlet’s long-term, strategic geographic expansion. With 455 stores open across the country, Grocery Outlet is evaluating growth opportunities and bringing jobs to local communities.
