Big Y Foods Inc. has completed a $1.8 million renovation of its Monroe grocery store at 535 Monroe Turnpike. The renovation, which began in January, included upgrading several departments and installing new décor and fixtures in several others within the 53,097-square-foot store.
Originally opened in December 1994, the store’s most recent previous remodel was in May 2006 at a cost of $2 million. The Monroe store employs 188 people.
A May 4 grand reopening will feature complimentary samples of its made-in-house wares as well as storewide product samples.
Headquartered in Springfield, Massachusetts, the independently owned Big Y Foods operates 77 stores throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut, including 71 supermarkets; 39 pharmacies, Fresh Acres Market, Table & Vine Fine Wines and Liquors; and five Big Y Express gas and convenience locations. The company said it employs more than 11,000 people in the two states.
