Rouses Supermarkets last week held groundbreaking ceremonies for two new stores to be build in Calcasieu Parish in Southwestern Louisiana.
The units in Sulphur and Moss Bluff, La., near Lake Charles, would be the Westernmost stores to be operated by Thibodaux, La.-based Rouses, whose stores are mainly located along the I-10 corridor from Lafayette, La., east to Mobile, Ala.
Rouses announced plans to build a new store in West Mobile earlier this month. The company entered that market in 2013 through the purchase former Belle Foods stores.
The new stores, expected to open in 2018, would expand Ruses to 58 locations.
Groundbreaking ceremonies for the Sulphur and Moss Bluff locations were held last Tuesday.
