The Fresh Market to celebrate the grand opening of its new Philadelphia store on January 27

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

Thursday, January 21, 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, January 27 at 8:00 a.m., the specialty grocer invites the community to celebrate the grand opening of its Chestnut Hill store, the company’s fifth store in the state of Pennsylvania.

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 Chestnut Hill store, the specialty grocer now operates 184 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, January 27 and Sunday, January 31.

Chef demonstrations and sampling will continue through Saturday.
