Shoppers who stop by the store, at 9607 Research Blvd. in North Austin, will find 800 new products on the shelves, a self-service pizza station, a hot bar that’s four times the size of the previous one, a new bulk department, “refreshed” Whole Body and wine sections and grab-and-go rotisserie chickens available at each register.

Grand re-opening festivities kick off Friday, with 10 percent off purchases of $75 or more. On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., events will include a vendor fair, brewery tap takeover, live music on the outdoor patio, specials, product giveaways and samples.
