United Family to add fourth Wichita Falls location
United Supermarkets announced on April 28th that Wichita Falls will be getting its fourth United Family store in early 2023. The company currently has two other United Supermarkets in the city, as well as a Market Street. The new store will be located at 2720 Southwest Parkway and feature a full-service pharmacy with drive-thru; Streetside grocery pickup service; and a Ready Meals section. In addition to a full-service deli and hot bar, the store will also offer fresh sushi and have an in-store bakery, as well as an extensive craft beer and wine selection. “United first came to Wichita Falls in 1963,” United Family President Sidney Hopper said, “and we have greatly enjoyed that partnership. It is a great community to serve.” The new store will add about 200 jobs to the Wichita Falls community.
“United Supermarkets continues to invest in Wichita Falls, whether it is supporting efforts with the Food Bank, the arts community or education,” Mayor Pro Tem Bobby Whiteley said in a release. “Many of our youth have gotten their first job sacking groceries at a United or Market Street store. This new store will bring jobs and expand the commerce in this neighborhood with a completely renovated building. It is great for Wichita Falls.”
In its 106th year of operation, The United Family operates 96 stores in 54 communities in Texas and New Mexico under five banners: United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, Albertsons Market and United Express. The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Albertsons Cos.
