An 18,000-square-foot Grocery Outlet Bargain Market opened March 24 at Vintner Square in Richland.
The $1.65 million store is part of a national chain of 300 “extreme discount” grocery stores operated by Emeryville, California-based Grocery Outlet. The company recently went public, raising about $400 million to fuel expansion.
The newest Tri-City Grocery Outlet is owned by independent operators Nikki and Mike Sims and is at the west end of Vintner Square, the Target-anchored shopping center owned by Browman Development.
The new store employs 30.
Its spot next to Party City was the last major development site at Vintner Square.
O’Brien Construction Co. of Kennewick was the general contractor.
