“All of us at Big Y are very excited to serve and be a part of the Middletown community with our unique fresh and local offerings, trained experts and state of the art facility,” said Michael P. D’Amour, president and CEO of Big Y. “We are proud of our exceptional and knowledgeable employees who are poised and ready to provide our Middletown customers with a remarkable and personalized shopping experience.”

The company broke ground on the project in April 2023. The building offers new green features like eco-friendly equipment, including energy-efficient refrigerated cases, a full- store generator and electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot. This and other recent store designs are part of the company’s broader strategy to modernize its retail spaces for customers and employees. 

Grand opening festivities begin on July 11 and will include giveaways, offers and sample tastings. New myBigY members will receive 500 myBigY Rewards points for signing up. Discounts are available every day for myBigY members using their membership, based upon their grocery purchases. 

This is the second market to open in the state this year. The Brookfield, Connecticut, location opened its doors in May. New locations are also underway in Westport, Connecticut, and Uxbridge, Massachusetts. These locations will bring Big Y’s number of supermarkets to 77.
