Marshall Family Fare Quick Stop celebrates its grand opening on Sept. 19
Eight jobs created as a result of the $1.275 million investment by SpartanNash
MARSHALL, Mich. – The Marshall Family Fare Supermarket will celebrate the grand opening of its Quick Stop location on Monday, Sept. 19. The fuel center will feature four pump dispensers, as well as a 1,464-foot convenience store with soft drink and energy drink options, hot foods and four daily blends of coffee and cappuccino.
The $1.275 million investment by Family Fare’s parent company, SpartanNash, also resulted in the creation of eight jobs at the Quick Stop. More positions are expected to be created in the coming months.
“The Marshall community is a wonderful place to live and work, and we are excited to reinvest in this store and community in this way,” said Ted Adornato, SpartanNash executive vice president of retail operations. “It’s exciting to add new features to our Family Fare stores, and we hope store guests will enjoy the convenience of being able shop for their groceries and fuel up their cars in one stop. With the addition of the Quick Stop fuel center, store guests at the supermarket can now earn yes Card fuel rewards and redeem them at the pump, in addition to our full array of low-cost, high-quality offerings at our Family Fare Supermarket.”
The Family Fare Quick Stop is located at 15975 W. Michigan Ave. in Marshall, directly in front of the newly remodeled Family Fare Supermarket.
The Marshall Family Fare also marked its grand re-opening in February 2016, including upgrades to the meat, seafood, sushi, bakery and deli departments, all-new produce and floral sections and the addition of an in-store Starbucks.
In total, SpartanNash has invested more than $2.3 million into its Marshall Family Fare Supermarket and Quick Stop in 2016.
