Market Basket is coming to Warwick
WARWICK, RI (WLNE) – Market Basket has announced plans to open a new store location in Warwick.
The new store will be located just off Route 2 on a site that previously housed a Sam’s Club and later an At Home store, a spokesperson said in a statement.
Construction of the 89,000 square foot store will begin immediately and it is tentatively scheduled to open by mid- 2021.
“I am thrilled to welcome Market Basket to Warwick. Our city’s central location in the state, combined with our growing business climate, continue to make Warwick a natural choice for multiple companies looking to expand their reach in the Ocean State,” said Mayor Joseph J. Solomon.
Earlier this year in March, the New England grocery store chain announced plans to open a store in Johnston.
The future Market Basket stores in Johnston and Warwick will be the first two locations in Rhode Island.
