Albertsons / Safeway introduces ‘Market Street Idaho’
Albertsons / Safeway is introducing its Market Street banner for customers in Treasure Valley with two planned ‘Market Street Idaho’ stores. Market Street Idaho aims to serve culinary delights and unique food experiences, offer world-class expertise from cooking classes and events, to hand-selected items that ignite customers’ appetite and inspire them to Eat Life Up.
“Market Street Idaho was created by a team of passionate, innovative food lovers with the goal of igniting Idaho’s passion for great food and elevated experiences,” said Susan Morris, evp and COO of Albertsons / Safeway. “Boise’s deep roots in great local food stem from our farming and ranching industry to our refugee and Basque communities. We think the time is right to bring new culinary experiences many hunger for but haven’t gotten yet locally through our Market Street Idaho stores,” Morris said.
Market Street Idaho’s Broadway location will open in early summer 2018, a Meridian location on Eagle and Fairview is planned for later this year. In order to complete the new Market Street Idaho store on Broadway Avenue, the company will close the existing Broadway store in early April. Employees will be offered opportunities in surrounding stores and may apply for positions at the new store once hiring begins.
