New Organic Concept Market in Broad Ripple

The Indy Star today is reporting that SuperValu (Cub Foods, Sav-a-Lot) will open the first of its lower price organic markets in Broad Ripple. The new Sunflower market will be located in the old Thrifty Threads (nee A&P) on the on Broad Ripple Ave across from McDonald's. SuperValu markets things price is a barrier for consumers wanting to get in on the organic bandwagon. It's due to open in early spring 2006. (Whether or not it's a good test of their or pricing concept, it sounds like there's enough other good stuff to feel welcome in Broad Ripple. The Marsh there now serves such a wide clientele, the quality of the stock and niceness of the store continue to decline. More from Susan Guyett:

The Sunflower Markets will feature lots of produce, meat, deli items, fresh baked goods, frozen foods, dairy products, cheese, seafood, beer, wine and more. They have an exclusive arrangement with French Meadow Bakery to operate a cafe/deli in the store to serve sandwiches, salads and soups.
