AMMON — Thousands of excited shoppers welcomed Broulim’s Fresh Food to Bonneville County Monday, Dec. 21, as the new grocery store opened its doors to the public.
Broulim’s at Sandcreek Commons has been under construction for most of this year. The 63,000 square foot building is one of the Rigby-based company’s biggest grocery stores.
Shoppers noticed some unique things about the new Broulim’s. There’s a cheese island, olive bar, fresh tortilla station, a sushi island and hot specialty foods prepared all day.
The store is also home to Dairy Queen, an authentic Korean BBQ eatery and a large mezzanine area with windows overlooking Bonneville County.
The Ammon Broulim’s is the company’s tenth grocery store. Over 900 people work for the locally-owned chain – with stores in Rexburg, St. Anthony, Rigby, Driggs, Shelley, Montpelier, Soda Springs and western Wyoming.
Broulim’s will hold official grand opening celebrations in January.
