Former Buehler's store opens as Price Less Foods Thursday | Business
Houchens Industries, Inc. will unveil the new Price Less Foods this Thursday, January 31 when the grocery store opens at 4851 W. Lloyd Expressway.
Formerly Buehler’s IGA, the store has undergone wall-to-wall renovations to make way for the new store concept. Price Less Foods is a cost-plus format, offering products to customers at ten percent above the store’s cost.
“Price Less Foods is simple and straightforward,” said Alan Larsen, director of marketing and merchandising for Houchens Industries, parent company of Price Less Foods. “Unlike some discount retailers who only carry a limited selection or generics, Price Less Foods features name brand products. It also has an extensive selection of fresh produce, top quality meats and in-house deli and bakery.”
Price Less says it has added 40 new jobs at the new location. “While we’re delighted to bring the Price Less Foods concept to Evansville, we’re also proud to add jobs that have a direct economic impact on the community,” Larsen said.
The Evansville location is Houchens’ first Price Less Foods store in Indiana; however, the store has locations in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Virginia.
Beginning Thursday, the Evansville Price Less Foods will be open daily 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Hometown Pharmacy – which is located inside the store – will remain open and a part of the store. Prescription purchases do not follow the 10 percent pricing structure of Price Less Foods.
A ribbon cutting, in conjunction with Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Indiana, is scheduled for Thursday, February 7at 10AM at the store. All community members are invited to attend.
