McCaffrey’s Food Markets on Thursday announced that it will open the doors to its New Hope store at 9 a.m. on Jan. 9.
The day will start with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by special sales and tastings throughout the store.
Located at 300 W. Bridge St. in the former Staples location, the new market has been eagerly awaited by local residents. The area is underserved in terms of grocery options, and McCaffrey’s enjoys a reputation for superior produce, meat, seafood, and bakery offerings.
The store will include a gourmet sandwich station, cheeses from around the world, an extensive grocery selection, custom cakes, a gourmet Java Jim’s coffee bar, a beer garden with hundreds of craft beers, indoor seating area and hundreds of organic, local and exotic product offerings, according to the company.
McCaffrey’s New Hope will also incorporate eco-friendly alternatives, as single-use plastic bags and straws will not be available at the store.
Store manager Lou Campo has more than 25 years’ experience in the grocery industry, and was the former manager of McCaffrey’s Princeton, N.J., market, the company said.
“We cannot express how thrilled we are to be opening our newest market in New Hope,” said McCaffrey’s President Jim McCaffrey. “We are looking forward to serving and immersing ourselves in this diverse and prominent town.”
The first McCaffrey’s Food Market opened in Yardley in 1986, and the company also serves customers in Newtown, Blue Bell, Doylestown, Princeton, N.J., and West Windsor, N.J.
Grand opening hours on Jan. 9 are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and regular business hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday and Monday.
