A second Macey’s Market, a companion brand of the Macey’s grocery store, opened Jan. 31 at 1638 S 900 E. in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Designed for smaller and more centralized areas, Macey’s Markets are created to best serve their specific communities. They feature an in-store bakery, delicatessen, full-service grocery and meat, produce and non-food departments.
The Salt Lake City store, known as Macey’s Market Sugar House, will continue its grand-opening celebration with a charcuterie event, featuring tastings and giveaways, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Feb. 3.
The store also will host a Valentine’s Day event with samples, crafts for kids and giveaways from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 13.
The Macey’s Market store boasts well-lit spaces, modern aesthetics and contemporary layout accentuated by warm colors and a mural from a local artist. It also has a Starbucks.
Its produce section has an extensive selection of fruits and vegetables, including locally sourced options and organic products. The delicatessen and bakery have been expanded to offer a broader selection of items, including gourmet sandwiches, salads, sushi and artisan cheeses. Shoppers can also find Kong Kone soft-serve ice cream.
The store also includes a comprehensive range of grocery items, including pantry staples, as well as a collection of local and specialty products, such as kosher, gluten-free, vegan and other options.
In 1947, Walt Macey and Dale A. Jones started the “Save-A-Nickle-Market” in Rose Park, Utah. Macey’s credits its rise from a small business to a multi-store chain to personalized service. The company is known for its community-centered stores and local products.
