CARMICHAEL, Calif. – August 2, 2023 – FoodMaxx, a part of The Save Mart Companies, today officially welcomed customers to the grand opening of its new Carmichael store, marking the value-format, warehouse-style grocery store’s introduction to the city. Located at 4708 Manzanita Avenue, FoodMaxx celebrated with a ceremonial ribbon cutting at 10:00 a.m.

In recognition of the grand opening, FoodMaxx announced more than $2,000 in community donations and new partnerships with local schools and nonprofit groups that support education, health and wellness initiatives and address food insecurity. The new store will provide community donations to several local organizations including the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services, the Thomas Kelly Elementary School after school program, and the Del Campo High School boys and girls basketball program.

“Supporting the residents of Carmichael and nearby neighborhoods is an essential part of what FoodMaxx strives for and we are excited to introduce the FoodMaxx value-format to this community,” said Paul Gossett, vice president & general manager for FoodMaxx at The Save Mart Companies. “With today’s shoppers facing ever-tighter budgets, our priority is to provide this community with the very best values, day in and day out, without sacrificing quality.”

To keep the celebration going, on Saturday, August 5, the first 300 customers will receive a “mystery” gift card valued between $10 and $100.
