_ Smaller urban format to offer fresh food for downtown Springfield.
Big Y Foods Inc. is getting ready to open its new-concept Big Y Express Fresh Market in Springfield, Mass. Located at 1500 Main Street as part of the Tower Square, the new 10,000-square-foot urban market will be tailored to fit the needs of the city’s downtown community, which has been considered a food desert due to a lack of fresh and healthy food.
While not a complete supermarket due to its size, this location will still have a full assortment of items from each department. These offerings will include more than 250 fresh produce items, freshly baked breads and cakes, bean-to-cup coffee, hot breakfast sandwiches and other high-quality prepared meals and sandwiches, freshly made sushi, natural and organic products, and everyday necessities.
