Rouses Market will debut a new concept Wednesday with the opening of a new store in Lafayette, La.
“This concept is about sharing what we do and what we make directly with out customers,” Donny Rouse, managing partner of the Thibodaux, La.-based retailer said in a statement.
The store is designed with a modern open layout allowing customers to experience steaks, fish and fresh ingredients cut before them. The produce department is located in the middle of the store and not on the perimeter. “You can see and talk to our butchers, bakers, florists and chefs and cooks while they work,” Rouse said.
Workers will prepare fresh food all day for dining in-store or to go. The store will also grow its own fresh basil, parsley and thyme in aeroponic towers on the store’s balcony. A full-service deli, butcher shop, sausage kitchen, seafood department, cheese department, floral department and bakery are also among the store’s fresh food offerings.
