Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, a new specialty grocer featuring healthy and organic value-priced offerings, is excited to announce the grand opening for Illinois’s second store location in Deerfield on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 7 a.m. The Deerfield Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Harriet Rosenthal will be on site for the ribbon cutting at 9 a.m.
“We look forward to opening Illinois’s second Fresh Thyme store in Deerfield,” CEO Chris Sherrell stated. “The grand opening event will be an exciting day to shop, try our different products, and participate in activities throughout the day.”
The first 250 shoppers on grand opening day will receive a limited edition custom Deerfield Fresh Thyme reusable bag filled with more than $50 of healthy groceries. Grand opening day will feature events for the entire family, including food sampling, live entertainment and giveaways. Additional events are scheduled to continue throughout the week.
“Fresh Thyme’s goal is to provide our local communities with fresh, natural products at a great value,” Sherrell said. “We also strive to build solid relationships within each community we call home and look forward to the opportunity to do so in Deerfield.”
Fresh Thyme has already hired many local community residents for managerial and hourly positions. There are still numerous full and part-time employment opportunities available at the Deerfield Fresh Thyme store. Anyone interested may apply online at www.freshthyme.com.
