MARTIN’S announced last week that it will remodel and refurbish 25 former Ukrop’s stores as part of this conversion to the MARTIN’S banner.
The remodeling and refurbishments are expected to be completed at all 25 stores later this spring, the release says. The renovation of individual stores will take place in rotations, with a staggered closing of stores for one week while work is completed, in order to lessen the impact on shoppers, the release says.
Pharmacies and in-store banks will remain open to the public during the work, it says. The renovations will include upgrades, such as increased refrigeration, improved lighting, maintenance and repairs and updated signage and décor packages throughout all of the stores.
All 23 cafes will receive new tables and chairs and be wired for Wi-Fi capability. The extent of the remodels and new amenities will vary by store, the release says.
Throughout the renovation process, MARTIN’S will use regional contractors and subcontractors, the release says. The company also intends to continue its business relationships with the local agricultural community, as well as other local suppliers who sell products in the stores, it says.
