Turkey Hill Opens New Supersized Store Format
LANCASTER, Pa. -- Turkey Hill Minit Markets is continuing its expansion in the Midwest with a new store format in Marysville, Ohio.
The new Turkey Hill Market, which opened for business this week, measures 6,800 square feet and is approximately 75 percent larger than the typical 4,000-square-foot Turkey Hill convenience store, according to the Columbus Business Journal.
Turkey Hill President Darel Pfeiff said the new store is envisioned as a contemporary version of the corner grocery. The goal is to be more like a grocery store with a wider product selection, fresh produce and meat, but still with the grab-and-go staples of a convenience store/gas station, the report added. It also has new breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that include build-your-own bistro-style sandwiches, wraps, bowl, fried chicken and pizza.
The store has 16 gas pumps and will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The new Turkey Hill Market will also feature offerings familiar to customers of Turkey Hill Minit Markets, including fresh-brewed coffee and cappuccino in assorted flavors and blends; fountain drinks; and Turkey Hill Ice Cream, Iced Tea and drinks. The store is also participating in Kroger's loyalty fuel program with the Kroger Plus card.
The Turkey Hill Market will be holding grand opening festivities on Sept. 27. The event will be broadcast live on WVMX-FM "The Mix 107.9".
The chain plans to build more Turkey Hill Markets and remodel some existing stores in Central Ohio, but no specifics have been revealed, the news outlet added.
Currently, Turkey Hill has more than 270 c-stores in Pennsylvania, the Columbus, Ohio area and Indiana. Turkey Hill Minit Markets is one of five convenience store divisions in the United States operated by The Kroger Co.
