OAKLAND, Calif., March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FOODSCO, the nation's largest price-impact supermarket chain, will open its first store in the City of Oakland on Wednesday, March 26, following a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The new 80,000 square-foot supermarket is located in East Oakland's Foothill Square Shopping Center at 10790 MacArthur Boulevard right off 108 th Street and is open from 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. The new store will provide local customers with a new, convenient and affordable option for their grocery shopping needs, including fresh produce, meat and seafood.

"We believe East Oakland will be a great FOODSCO community and we look forward to offering our unique brand of friendly service to customers who appreciate quality and value at everyday low prices."

FOODSCO currently operates five stores in The Bay Area: two stores in San Francisco and one store each in Pittsburg, Redwood City and Richmond.

The new Foothill Square FOODSCO store is expected to help boost East Oakland's economic vitality and attract additional investment and development to East Oakland. The new store is the first major supermarket to open in the community in more than 20 years.

"On behalf of the residents of Oakland, and on behalf of the entire City Council, we welcome FOODSCO as our community partner in providing quality foods, goods, and services to an area that has been anticipating this opportunity for most of my 17 years on this Council.

"It has been my honor to work with the representatives of FOODSCO to bring this dream to fruition. The relationship between FOODSCO and our residents in Oakland, will only serve as a true testimony of what can be accomplished with dedication and perseverance to bring quality to our neighborhoods."

Vice Mayor Reid added, "For so long the residents of Oakland have spent their hard earned income in other cities for quality foods and goods. Now with an organization as prominent as FOODSCO, we open our doors to surrounding cities to visit the new Foothill Square Shopping Center and to experience the changes that are finally coming true for the City of Oakland. It is a great day in Oakland. I am pleased and honored to be a part of this change, not only for East Oakland, but for the entire City of Oakland."
