From Illinois Business Journal news services

EDWARDSVILLE – Joe’s Market Basket will hold a grand opening celebration at 11 a.m. Friday, April 10, for the newly expanded deli and grocery sections at its location at 447 S. Buchanan St.

The public is encouraged to attend to get a sneak peak at the new deli and sample some of its offerings. Friday’s event is being done in conjunction with the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce.

“Our Boar’s Head Deli has always been a bright spot of our business and we felt it was time to allow more space for the deli to grow, while offering fresh, prepared foods that our customers can take home and enjoy like they do our other fresh-made convenience items. We are excited about the addition and believe our customers will be, too,” said Jason Stevens of Joe’s Market Basket.

The expanded deli has made-to-order Boar’s Head sandwiches, freshly cooked Market Basket beef, pork and poultry, fresh and healthy take-home meals, ready-to-eat meals, daily specials and party and holiday specials. Stevens said the market hopes to offer a variety of lunch options for customers interested in grabbing lunch to go back to the office or out to a park to eat with family.

Stevens added, “We hope the deli will provide an even greater level of convenience for our customers and that they take advantage of our fast, friendly service. Our lunch items will be great for take-out lunch items for office meetings, grab and go lunches and for taking food on the go to one of our many parks.”

The grand opening will also feature a chance to win Joe’s Market Basket Gift Cards. There will also be a truckload meat sale for all to take part in. The event will also kick-off a weekend of retail specials available to customers. For more information about the grand opening, contact Joe’s Market Basket at (618) 656-9055.
