Guess who’s back in the house? With a new store location click-clackin’ about, local grocery chain Bashas’ is back to disrupting the Southwest market.
Last week, the grocer opened its first newly built store in a decade, upping its store count on the Navajo Nation to eight, according to local news source KTAR News.
The new store will reportedly operate under Bashas’ Diné Market banner, the retailer’s grocery store brand for Arizona’s Native American reservations. Weighing in at 16,000 square feet, Bashas latest store offers signage in the native language and products like fresh mutton and Navajo tacos made with traditional fry bread, according to KJZZ.
In a company press release, Bashas’ noted that the newest location joins 10 others under the Diné Market banner in the state of Arizona. In total, Bashas’ operates over 100 stores in Arizona and one in New Mexcio under its Bashas’, Diné Market, AJ’s Fine Foods, and Food City banners.
With Bashas’ back to building new stores, will the retailer continue to expand its store network in 2019?
