The Fresh Market to celebrate the grand opening of its new Hendersonville store on March 2

Opening festivities include giveaways, sampling and chances to win The Fresh Market gift cards

Thursday, February 25, 2016 — The Fresh Market, Inc. (NASDAQ: TFM) was founded with one simple goal in mind: to bring friends, family and neighbors high-quality products in a warm and friendly atmosphere with superior customer service.  On Wednesday, March 2 at 8:00 a.m., the specialty grocer invites the community to celebrate the grand opening of its Hendersonville store, the company’s ninth store in the state of Tennessee.

The Fresh Market is a true neighborhood market that has built its reputation as a unique food destination store with a focus on inspiring its customers to make every meal extraordinary. With the opening of the Hendersonville store, the specialty grocer now operates 185 stores in the Southeast, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, with plans for continued expansion.

Grand opening festivities will begin at 8:00 with a “Cracking of the Parmesan,” a gourmet version of the traditional ribbon-cutting event. This will be followed by a day of opening activities which include a free sample-sized bag of coffee and a free reusable shopping bag to the first 1,000 customers, food sampling stations from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and chef demonstrations from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Additionally, customers attending the grand opening can sign up for the store’s weekly “Fresh Ideas” e-mail and enter drawings for $100 The Fresh Market Gift Cards. Five drawings will be held for customers who register between Wednesday, March 2 and Sunday, March 6.

Chef demonstrations and sampling will continue through Saturday.
