A new Food Lover’s Market store is coming to Bothasig in the Western Cape October 20 2022.

With an array of fresh food and grocery offerings and a “dazzling display of shopping theatre” inside, it promises to be a premium shopping experience,” CEO and co-founder of the Food Lover’s Market Group, Brian Coppin said.

This 3000m2 stand-alone site represents a R100m investment. The cost of the land and the buildings was R70m and the cost of the store fitting and setup was R30m.

The store will serve surrounding communities, including Bothasig, Plattekloof, Monte Vista, Panorama, Burgundy Estate, Richwood, and Edgemead. Picture: Supplied.

“We are a family business and, from our tables to yours, we want you to feel that sense of warmth and family when you visit our store,” said Coppin.

“As a result, significant thought has gone into the Bothasig team,” he adds.

The store will be managed by Valentino Ricciardi, a retailer with 42 years of experience. Ricciardi has been part of the Food Lover’s family for the past 29 years, since the company was founded.

He will manage a 150 person team. As many as 25 of the team will be part of the gourmet Butchery section, which is the largest butchery in the Food Lover’s Market Group.

“With a new store comes a new team and we’ve loved welcoming more smiling faces to the Food Lover’s family and getting to know one another,” said Ricciardi.

The new store will include the butchery, a fresh produce section, a seafood section, a bakery, a cheese area, a deli, hot prepared foods Crispy Chicken, Bubs Fish & Chips and Pie O’My.

The store is located at the intersection of the Link and Vryburger Roads in Bothasig.
