Two of Chicagoland’s favorite local retailers have joined forces, as fresh market and grocer Angelo Caputo’s has partnered with health food and supplement store Fruitful Yield to create a new store-within-a-store experience.
An express version of Fruitful Yield can be found in Angelo Caputo's wellness department at its Carol Stream location in the Chicagoland area that opened earlier this summer. Fruitful Yield in Angelo Caputo’s plans to focus on natural health, beauty and supplements. The goal of the stores teaming together is to provide shoppers with a one-stop shop for all of their health, wellness and grocery needs.
Carol Stream is the only Angelo Caputo’s location with a Fruitful Yield so far, but the two companies are enthusiastic about the partnership.
According to Fruitful Yield President Joe Fulco, “The Fruitful Yield family has been in business since 1962. Partnering with the Angelo Caputo’s family — which has been in business since 1958 — creates an excellent partnership. Both families are driven to satisfy their customer’s unique needs. When a customer walks into Angelo Caputo’s, they expect friendly associates and a clean, inviting store with a large selection of groceries. Our Fruitful Yield customer expects the same —friendly, knowledgeable associates in a clean store with a large selection of healthy products. By teaming together we give all our customers that same service, and our commitment to their family’s needs and their health and wellness goals.”
“We felt that the partnership was natural,” added Robertino Presta, CEO of Angelo Caputo’s. “Two local, family businesses that specialize in promoting healthy products and a healthy lifestyle. We couldn’t be any happier.”
Fans of the two businesses can come to the grand opening Sept. 13 and 14. The ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for Friday at 9 a.m. Popular health brands such as NOW Foods and Ancient Nutrition will be on hand offering product samples. Tote bags will be given to the first 50 guests on Friday and to the first 100 guests on Saturday.
Carol Stream-based Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Market operates seven stores in the Chicagoland area. Bloomingdale, Ill.-based Fruitful Yield has 13 stores in the area.
