Melrose Park has another major grocery store. Cermak Fresh Market opened last week at 950 Winston Plaza. The building used to house a Meijer grocery store until it closed in 2017.
California-based NewMark Merrill Companies sold the 90,000-square-foot space to Cermak Fresh Market last year for an undisclosed price.
“We continue to look for ways to enhance the customer experience at Winston Plaza and all centers in our portfolio,” Sandy Sigal, NewMark Merrill’s CEO, told a commercial real estate trade publication in 2022.
“Cermak Fresh Market is a best-of-class operator in the Chicagoland area, provides an incredible shopping experience and knows how to connect with each community they have grocery stores in,” he said.
The massive store includes a full-service hot bar, an area where employees cook tortillas and tortilla chips on site, a bakery and a deli, among other features.
Melroes Park officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 14 to mark the grocery store’s opening.
