The specialty grocer is slated to celebrate the grand opening of a new location in Manassas on Friday, with a July 21 date set to debut a grocery store in Fort Myers.

The fast-growing discounter said it has opened new distribution centers in Blair, Nebraska; Newnan, Georgia; and Fort Worth, Texas, with more expansion in the works.
