Grand opening just in time for holiday shopping
FoodMaxx broke into the Nevada marketplace today with the opening of a new store at 565 East Prater Way in Sparks. This location offers more than 47,000 square feet of warehouse-style shopping and rock bottom prices on name brand products. Nevada resident, Dalton Soliman, has been named Store Manager and has hired approximately 70 new team members.
“We’re fired up about being here and showing Nevada residents what we’re all about. That means bringing items in by the truckload. Volume means our shoppers can stretch their food dollars,” said Frank Capps, General Manager of FoodMaxx. “Come do your holiday meal shopping here. You won’t be disappointed.”
To highlight FoodMaxx’s commitment to the community, the store donated $1,000 to its adopted school, Lincoln Park Elementary, which brought members of its kindergarten class to the grand opening to sing a song. The store will also match every donation made at checkout to the Northern Nevada Food Bank during our Give.Share.Care! Holiday Drive from now to December 27th.
Throughout the year, FoodMaxx donates up to 3% of profits to local schools and organizations enrolled in the Shares powered by eScrip program. In addition to adopting a school, each store sponsors two kids’ sports teams a year by giving them a cooler full of water and snacks before each game during their season.
The Grand Opening comes just as FoodMaxx celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Its first store debuted in October of 1986 in Bakersfield, CA. The brand stands 53 stores strong, 52 in California and one in Nevada. FoodMaxx will open its second Nevada store in Carson City on December 7. FoodMaxx is owned and operated by The Save Mart Companies.
