WEST SACRAMENTO — Raley’s announced today that it will be opening a Raley’s supermarket in Oakdale, at 1550 East F. St, in the existing OakRidge Fresh Market location in the OakRidge Shopping Center. The store will open this spring.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to open our first Oakdale store,” said Raley’s President & CEO Bill Coyne. “This gives us a chance to bring our signature products and unique customer experience to the Oakdale community, with a store that reflects our commitment to quality.”
Raley’s plans to add its own flair to many of the existing store departments in the 47,482-square-foot store, including a full-service Meat & Seafood Department, Food Service Department, Fine Bakery and Café. The existing Guaranty Bank will continue to operate a full-service, in-store branch.
“Raley’s is the perfect replacement for OakRidge Fresh Market,” said Jim Pallios, co-owner of Fresh Market Grocery, Inc. Raley’s will join Big 5 Sporting Goods, Longs Drugs and the Tractor Supply Co. as anchors of the OakRidge Shopping Center.
