WAUKESHA - The first Sendik's Food Markets location in Waukesha will open Saturday, June 24, on Meadowbrook Road in the Meadowbrook Marketplace.

As part of the grand opening, there will be promotional prices and grand opening events that will take place all week. In addition, there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. June 27 with Sendik's family co-owners and public officials.

The new Sendik's location will offer specialty grocery, fresh produce and meat and a vast selection of wine, beer and spirits. The 44,500-square-foot store will also include an expanded Sendik's Fresh2GO signature deli island offering grilled-to-order paninis, made-to-order sushi, a salad bar, a hot bar with homemade favorites, an olive bar and other fresh grab-and-go items.

"We are thrilled to have found a wonderful location in the city of Waukesha and can't wait to open this store," said family co-owner Ted Balistreri in a statement. "We will work hard to earn customers' trust and business and look forward to being a vibrant part of the community."

The store, located at 701 Meadowbrook Road, will employ approximately 100 associates and will be the 17th location for the family owned grocer and the third to open in 2017, following a Fresh2GO small-format store in Greendale in March and a full-line store at The Corners of Brookfield in April. Additionally, a Fresh2GO is slated to open in Hales Corners in the coming weeks. For more information, visit www.sendiks.com.
