The 55,200-square foot unit features an expansive produce department with more than 700 varieties of fresh produce, including organic and ethnic products. The store also features an in-store pizza kitchen, a meat department offering hand cut choice Black Angus beef, a seafood department featuring sustainably harvested fish fillets and a full service pharmacy. It also offers online shopping.

The store also has advanced refrigeration and climate control technologies designed to lessen its impact on the environment and global warming, Weis said. These technologies will reduce the store’s refrigerant usage by 60% compared to a conventional supermarket. As a result, it is expected to achieve the U.S. EPA’s GreenChill Gold-Level Certification.
