TOWN OF BROOKFIELD — Now solely in the lower level of The Corners, Sendik’s Food Markets will invest $5 million into the Town of Brookfield location to increase the store’s footprint, which includes a main level presence.

The store will grow by about 5,000 square feet to be a total of 40,000 square feet and will be expanded to be fully integrated into the main shopping level at The Corners, adding a mezzanine level lounge, and dining and bar offerings, Sendik’s and IM Properties announced Thursday.

The work on the grocery store will start in January and it will remain open during construction. Construction is expected to be completed by summer. Some additions that customers can expect at the larger store, according to the announcement, are new services, expanded food choices and greater convenience.

Those include inclusion of 7,000 square feet on the main Union Street level adjoining L.L.Bean that will house a convenient floral shop and home goods department, expanded grab-and-go selections and more.
