Two new Grocery Outlet stores are expected to open in Boise and Caldwell on July 30.
The stores will be Grocery Outlet’s fifth and sixth in Idaho, joining a Boise store on Fairview and other stores in Coeur d’Alene, Lewiston and Twin Falls.
“I’m working on something in Nampa but it’s not done yet,” said Bill Coyle, a Grocery Outlet vice president of real estate.
Marc Drason, another Grocery Outlet vice president of real estate, is scoping out other Treasure Valley possibilities, likely Meridian, Coyle said.
“Marc is pursuing the greater Boise area only at this time,” Coyle said. “We are looking at nothing further in a new market in Idaho at this time.”
The Emeryville, Calif.,-based “grocery extreme value” retailer has 225 stores in California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Pennsylvania. Most of these stores are independently operated by local families.
Jim and Michelle Rigdon are the owners of Grocery Store in the Overland Park shopping center at 6969 Overland Road in Boise.
The Admire Family is relocating from Sacramento, Calif., to own the Caldwell store in the new Caldwell Commons shopping center on Cleveland Boulevard near Ustick Road. Ken Admire Sr. and Mindi Admire own a Grocery Outlet in midtown Sacramento and their son Ken Admire Jr. and Shallyn Admire own a Grocery Outlet in the Sacramento suburb of Elk Grove. Both these stores will close.
