Grocery Outlet in Niceville is now accepting applications for employment.
The store, set to open sometime this summer, is seeking applicants for all positions in all areas of the store.
Grocery Outlet is located in the Palm Plaza in the location formally occupied by Food Depot and, before that, Kelley’s Supermarket.
Applicants can apply inside the store, according to Rick Webster, store manager.
Webster, formally of the Niceville Food World store, told Niceville.com that the new Grocery Outlet location has been completely gutted and remodeled from top to bottom. We took a look — the store has an inviting atmosphere that is bright, fresh, and airy.
Grocery Outlet, based in Dothan, Ala., has been in operation for about 30 years. The discount grocery store offers products under a “cost plus” format, which prices items at the same cost for which Grocery Outlet purchases them. Customers are then charged a 10 percent markup on their total purchase at checkout
Food Depot closed in January, 2014. Another Niceville supermarket, Food World, closed its doors in the summer of 2014. The supermarkets currently serving our community are Publix, Winn-Dixie and Walmart.
The Palm Plaza is located on John Sims Parkway, just east of Palm Boulevard.
