With the opening last week of two more stores, Fresh Thyme has four locations and more coming. The Savage store opened in 30,000 sf of the former Rainbow store, with the Vadnais Heights store of the same size going into the former Festival Foods store. By all accounts, they opened with lots of buzz and great sales. Their Bloomington store opened last year, and was the only site until Apple Valley opened this spring. The next location to open is Plymouth at Highway 55 and Vicksburg in mid-September, along with St. Louis Park, Prospect Park, Waite Park and West St. Paul in the works.
They also added liquor to their offerings, with the Vadnais Heights stores having a liquor store. Plymouth will also offer liquor, and more will be added to future locations if feasible.
