Russ’s Market on 66th and O celebrates grand re-opening

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News

Press Release: 

Russ’s Market celebrated an expansion and renovation of its East Park Plaza store, located at 66th and O Street, with a grand re-opening ribbon cutting. The store nearly doubled in size after taking over space next door which had previously housed a drugstore. Construction was completed in phases, allowing the store to remain open.

Pat Raybould, president of B&R Stores, says the changes are significant enough to call for a celebration. “This Russ’s Market really is a new store. It has a modern, bright look and very welcoming atmosphere,” said Raybould. “The best part is that we’re able to offer customers more fresh items, specialty foods and services.”

The 66th and O Street location has added a drive-thru pharmacy, an expanded spirits section with a separate entrance, and a sit-down cafe that’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The deli and meat departments also feature more prepared items for quick meals at home. New fuel pumps make it easier for customers to redeem fuel discounts earned by using their Russ’s Community Rewards card.

One lucky customer received a 32-inch flat screen television during the ribbon cutting ceremony. Other prizes will be given away throughout the coming weeks, including a two-year lease on a 2016 Chevy Trax crossover SUV.
