The old Marvin’s Food Warehouse in Sallisaw will soon be the new Shoppers Value Foods and will be offering shoppers a unique shopping experience.
Shoppers will be offered the store’s inventory for cost, plus a simple 10 percent.
Ron Newby, Shoppers Value Foods area manager, was at the store Friday helping prepare for the change.
“We will have that posted all over the store,” he said. “We try to keep it as simple as possible. It’s what it costs to get it to the back door, into the store and on the shelf, to the check out, and out the front door. That’s our cost. Then we add 10 percent and that helps pay the light bill, salaries, and repairs and maintenance.”
This is a whole new way to pay for groceries in Sallisaw.
“It’s simple, fair and honest and that can add up to real savings on a family’s grocery bill. Just compare a Shopper’s receipt with the last store you shopped and you will see the difference!” store information encourages.
Store Manager Nancy Patterson is excited about the remodeling and new pricing. The store is already beginning to shine, and shoppers may find their favorite items on new shelves. Patterson said the first aisle past the bakery will soon be the 88-cent aisle, where shoppers will find bargains of all kinds
“We’re going to have some amazing deals,” Patterson said. “It’s a fresh new look. It’s amazing. It really is.”
The store is undergoing inside changes this week, and will be closed Aug. 28, 29 and 30 for more remodeling. A new sign is also expected to go up next week.
The store will reopen on Aug. 31, Newby said, with wholesome and quality grocery items. The Sallisaw Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a ribbon cutting at the store at 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 31. The store will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 .m. daily.
