Last week, GES Inc. of Marianna, which operates Food Giant grocery stores, bought most of the assets of the former Harvest Foods in Little Rock’s Tanglewood Shopping Center for around $225,000.
GES is expected to open the unnamed grocery store by March 1, according to our grocery store watcher.
The 34,000-SF building had been part of Cranford’s Fresh World of White Hall for a few months before it closed as a result of the Affiliated Foods Southwest Inc. of Little Rock bankruptcy in May.
We also learned that a representative from GES on Thursday was measuring the shelves at the other former Cranford’s store at 10901 N. Rodney Parham Road, which also had been a Harvest Foods.
We weren’t able to reach the president of GES, Steve Edwards.
