Rouses Opens New Store in Theodore
THEODORE,Ala. (WPMI) A new grocery chain has now opened in the Port City, and coming with it, jobs.
Rouses is a Louisiana based grocery chain. There are plans to open up five stores in the area, all at the old Belle Food locations.
Sunday, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held for their first location on Theodore Dawes Road.
The move to the area will bring nearly 800 jobs. Owners say this will be a good way to help the community.
"I think it's great. there's a lot of people looking for jobs at the time we were doing our job fair," said Donny Rouse, managing partner. "I think we came in at a good time to help the communities and get some people back to work", Rouse said.
Rouse said the store's specialty is locally grown items from produce to seafood.
