Jamieson Family Markets said Tuesday that it would open a new Shop 'n Save store next week in Youngwood, Pa. — the area’s first new grocery store since 1995.
“My family and I are honored to bring a new full-service grocery store to the Youngwood community, especially since there has been a food desert in this area for years,” Tom Jamieson, owner of the store and developer of the Youngwood Commons shopping center, said in a statement. “This new development will be a wonderful destination for Youngwood and New Stanton residents and serve as a source of growth for the community. As a former New Stanton and Fort Allen resident, this community holds a very special place in our hearts.”
Pittsburgh-based Jamieson Family Markets operates nine other Shop 'n Save locations in addition to nine Save-A-Lot locations.
The 36,000-square-foot Shop 'n Save offers a wide variety of fresh produce, prepared food options, expanded dairy and frozen food sections, full-service deli, bakery, fresh seafood and meat with on-site butchers, Jamieson said. Local dignitaries and representatives from supplier Supervalu are expected to be at a grand opening ceremony Dec. 11.
