Ceremonial Pasta Ribbon Cutting Kicks of Kings Remodel Celebration
● By Rebecca K. Abma
Kings Food Market celebrated its grand re-opening in Midland Park with a ceremonial pasta ribbon cutting to kick off a weekend of events for the community.
The newly inspired store includes a Wi-Fi enabled indoor café, an expanded gluten-free section, an all-new service meat section featuring grass-fed beef, “top of the catch” seafood and the largest selection of organic produce in the area, according to Kings President & CEO Judy Spires.
Prepared foods include self-service olive, soup, salad and mezze bars, hand-rolled sushi, an artisan bakery, and expanded catering department. The redesigned shop also offers an expanded floral department and a special section dedicated to global flavors.
Throughout the weekend, shoppers can taste their way through the Midland Park Shopping Center anchor store, with samplings from all of Kings’ departments, plus have an opportunity to enter contests and giveaways. In addition, nutritionist Shari Bilt Boockvar, MS, RD, will provide complimentary consultations from 11:30am to 2:30pm on March 1.
As part of its “Act Against Hunger” initiative, Kings kicked-off a two-week food drive collecting food supplies and other products for the Center for Food Action and presented a check to CFA for $1,000.
Headquartered in Parsippany, Kings Food Markets was founded in 1936 by the Bildner Family, sold to UK retailer Marks & Spencer in 1988 and sold again to Angelo, Gordon & Co. in 2008. Over the past 18 months, the upscale grocer has remodeled more than half of its 25 stores and intends to complete remodeling of all of its stores by the end of 2014.
Kings is located at 85 Godwin Ave., Midland Park, in the Midland Park shopping center.
