Needler’s Fresh Market has officially opened a market Lafayette, Indiana at 2250 Teal Road.
“We appreciate the enthusiasm of shoppers in Lafayette who are wanting an independent, full-service, convenient grocery store in the Teal Road area,” said marketing director, Julie Needler Anderson. “We were hoping to open the store in April but had to postpone due to other projects that required more resources than expected. We are a prudent organization; we don’t want to overreach or overcommit ourselves without being 100% confident that we can deliver on our mission to delight customers, nourish communities, and inspire pride in our team. We take that very seriously and have waited to open the store when we can exceed customer expectations. We are stocked and ready to do so now!”
The store will offer a conventional format with a focus on fresh, quality, and service. Needler’s will feature an enhanced assortment of Indiana local and signature items that will be quickly noticed by guests. The store will include a pharmacy, with a focus not only on the treatment of illnesses but also helping patients achieve and maintain overall health and wellness.
“Our goal is to make the Lafayette store the friendliest and freshest offering in the market,” stated store director Randy Winchester. “We may not be the biggest, but we can definitely be the best.”
