Boone, Iowa-based Fareway Stores Inc. opened the doors on Tuesday to its first development in Kansas—signifying the seventh state of operation for the retailer—with a 7,400-square-foot Fareway Meat Market.
The new Meat Market located at 13430 W 151st Street in Olathe, Kansas, offers customers fresh, high-quality meat, which it touts as “second-to-none”; a full-service butcher counter; farm-fresh produce; low, competitive prices; and to-go barbecue meal options through McGonigle’s Kitchen and Catering.
Fareway said the Meat Market features an adjoining wine & spirits store; a variety of craft beer; fine wines, and top-shelf spirits. The location will offer FastLane, a self-service checkout option, online shopping and curbside pickup, available at Shop.Fareway.com. Customers can save $5 on their first purchase with a one-time coupon code of OLATHEFIVE at online checkout any time before Aug. 31, the Midwest grocer said in a statement.
“We are excited to expand into the state of Kansas with a Fareway Meat Market and look forward to serving the needs of area residents in the growing community of Olathe,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We want to thank the city for their support in making this project possible, allowing us to enter into a seventh state, and for welcoming Fareway as a part of the community.”
Olathe City Mayor John Bacon echoed positive comments regarding the store’s opening“We are eager to see Fareway open and look forward to enjoying high-quality products at a first-class establishment in our own backyard. Investments like this in our community are key to maintaining the high quality of life that sets Olathe apart. This is an exciting time for our city, and we’re thrilled to have Fareway be a part of our community.”
The Midwest grocer also operates a Fareway Meat Market in the Des Moines, Iowa, neighborhood of Beaverdale.
