Expansion update 6/19/20

Posted by VFC Marketing Team on Jun 19, 2018 1:38:59 PM

Site concrete continues while the store is quickly transforming on the inside. The new grocery shelves are being filled and the old ones taken down. It's going to feel spacious soon. As products are reorganized into the remodeled center store, don't hesitate to ask for help finding what you need. The deli remodel is beginning, so the hot bar and service counter is closed. The taco truck is serving tacos, burritos and enchiladas Monday through Saturdays, lunch and dinner in the VFC parking lot. Drip Coffee is still available inside the store.

Now that we've moved grocery out of the "old store" into the new addition, you can't see behind the scenes. This week's report shows what's happening out of sight - the concrete floors are being cut and removed, interior walls are coming down. In the meantime, you may be wandering around looking for a few of your favorite things. Don't be shy about asking a staff member!
