bfresh to Open in Somerville's Davis Square
A pair of grocery stores that focus on healthy options will soon be joined by a third shop.
According to a post within the Davis Square Live Journal blog, bfresh is going to be opening in the former Social Security Building on Elm Street in a space that another grocery store--Brothers Marketplace (an offshoot of Roche Bros.)--had been looking at, and which World of Beer and Boston Beer Works had also been considering as well. Once it opens, the new bfresh will join another on Harvard Avenue in Allston and a third in Fairfield, CT [ed note--now closed], with the plan being for the store to open later this year. [Ed note: Another store recently opened in Brighton.]
The company that runs bfresh is Fresh Formats, which is part of Dutch retailer Ahold (the same corporation that operates the Stop & Shop supermarket chain).
The address for this upcoming market in Davis Square is: bfresh, 240 Elm Street, Somerville, MA, 02144. The website for bfresh can be found at http://bfresh.com/
[February 20, 2017 update: An email sent today indicates that the new bfresh opens in Davis Square on Friday, February 24.]
