As consumers continue to show a blooming interest in an authentic Hispanic grocery shopping experience, Southeastern Grocers has announced an increase to its number of Fresco y Más stores. The company has unveiled 5 new locations in South Florida, and 11 stores to round out the competitive market.
“As Fresco y Más continues to evolve in South Florida, we are meeting the expanding consumer demand of providing more communities with an authentic Hispanic grocery store,” shared Ian McLeod, President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, upon the announcement. “As we continue to listen and learn from our customers at all of our Fresco y Más locations, we are developing new stores that reflect exactly what our shoppers are looking for; More Savings. More Service. More For You.”
A key part of the Fresco y Más banner is its new full-service Latin butcher shop (Carniceria), and renovated bakery department with a selection of Hispanic pastries and local baked goods. In total, more than 500 new Hispanic items are available across several of the store’s departments.
“Each store’s new Hispanic-focused product assortment and features, including a full-service Latin butcher shop and new Cocina, are our commitment to providing a shopping experience that reflects the cultural connection we strive to make with our Hispanic customers,” continued McLeod.
Fresco y Más is also highlighting a new “Low Price every day” program, which includes more than 800 popular products at a discounted cost. Easily found in store with distinctive green and yellow arrow signage, the company said these prices will be at the same low price for at least 6 months.
