Long-awaited third Salem Market Basket debuts at Tuscan Village
SALEM, N.H. — Tens of thousands of different products — including 300 types of gourmet cheese and more than 400 flavors of yogurt — are stocked and ready to go for the opening of the new Salem Market Basket on Aug. 10.
The nearly 80,000-square-foot building will offer more than 50,000 items for sale daily, according to David McLean, Market Basket’s director of operations. It’s the local supermarket chain’s 80th store, and the first businesses in the Tuscan Village development to open.
With the opening of this store at 69 Central St., three Market Baskets will be located in a mile-and-a-half stretch of Route 28 in Salem.
“We’re keeping the three stores,” said David McLean, Market Basket’s director of operations. “There’s no intention of changing anything.”
