The new 50,000 square-foot store will create about 100 jobs, offer produce, fresh meat, beer and wine, health and beauty items and a cold cut counter, in addition to the closeout department it’s known for.

The closeout aisle is stocked by Marc’s closeout buyers who try to find the best deals from around the world.
