United Supermarkets debuts new location to media & community with ribbon-cutting ceremony ahead of grand opening

  • WICHITA FALLS, Texas — On Tuesday, May 23, The United Family debuted its newest United Supermarkets location in Wichita Falls to media and dignitaries with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony and store tours. Opening to the public on Wednesday, May 24, at 6 a.m., this store marks the company’s fourth location in the city, in addition to the Burkburnett store.

    Now the 98th location for The United Family, this store is a continuation of the modern evolution of the company’s flagship banner — a “next-generation” United Supermarkets. It will bring many of the things people know and love while also showing off a wider selection of products and services along with an updated look.

    “We are so excited and proud to be opening this new location in the Wichita Falls community,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family. “It is beautiful, spacious, and full of some of the best United Supermarkets has to offer its guests. Not to mention, it is especially meaningful to our company to put a United Supermarkets store in this neighborhood and bring commerce back to an empty building.”

    Some of the new features in the store include a Sushi bar; a wide-selection of beer and wine with a special section dedicated to Texas beers; Streetside grocery pick-up and delivery; as well as a full-service bakery, floral department, meat counter; pharmacy with a drive through window and more.

    “This United Supermarkets location will bring with it an incredible product selection from its meat and seafood to its beer and wine,” Hopper said. “Guests who are familiar with our Market Steet banner will feel right at home in this store.”

    Mitchell Veitenheimer, director for the new store and long-time Wichita Falls resident, said in addition to the wide product selection, guests can still count on the same service they have come to expect from a United Supermarkets.

    “As a store director, it is my job to help accommodate every guest’s needs when they step foot in this store,” Veitenheimer said. “I promise this store has a lot of new things to offer, but I also promise that this team will do their best to make it special every day. We are proud to serve this part of the Wichita Falls community.”
