BELLINGHAM, Wash. — February 6, 2013 — Haggen, Inc. is unveiling Haggen Northwest Fresh Ferndale, the newest location for its Haggen Northwest Fresh concept stores. The former Haggen Food & Pharmacy store, located in Ferndale, Washington, will officially reopen on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“Haggen Northwest Fresh provides a grocery experience that is unique to this region,” said Clement Stevens, Senior Vice President of Merchandising at Haggen, Inc. “Northwest Fresh is our promise to deliver homegrown quality and delightful experiences while supporting a connected community and sustainable local food economy. We are excited to bring this experience to the Ferndale community.”
Haggen, Washington’s oldest and largest independent grocery retailer, launched its Haggen Northwest Fresh brand and concept store model in 2011.
