The store will the be the first of more than 10 new openings set by Fresh Thyme in 2015, the company said. The Chicago-based natural foods retailer opened its first store in April and today operates 10 stores in the Midwest. Officials said they planned as many as 60 new stores in five years.
"As a new member of the Fairview Heights community, we want to introduce ourselves, have some fun and provide an enjoyable atmosphere where people can experience who we are and what we offer," Chris Sherrell, CEO of Fresh Thyme, said in a statement. "Our mission is to improve the way our communities eat by combining the spirit of a weekend farmers market and the convenience of a neighborhood store, with the nutritious offerings of a natural food marketplace."
