Construction is nearing completion on the $5 million, two-story Sendik’s Food Market renovation at The Corners of Brookfield. Sendik’s today announced that it will officially debut its new grocery and home store concept in mid-October. The 40,000-square-foot reimagined shopping experience will include new services, expanded selections and greater convenience, plus all the Sendik’s favorites that shoppers have come to love.
Among Sendik’s new offerings at its Town of Brookfield store will be a sophisticated bistro area, complete with an extensive list of wine by the glass, local craft beer on tap, gourmet espresso drinks, nitro cold brew on tap, fresh-squeezed, cold-pressed juices and homemade smoothies. The bistro will also offer a menu of shareable small plates and appetizers, and seating for 25. Additionally, a new grill station will give shoppers the opportunity to order favorites from a grill-specific menu or have freshly selected meats and seafood grilled in real-time.
Adding to the unique shopping experience at the newly renovated Sendik’s will be the addition of a 7,000-square-foot Sendik’s Home store on the main shopping center level. The store will feature carefully-curated clothing selections, an in-store dressing room, an expansive floral shop, international gourmet food selections and an array of brand-name kitchen products like LeCrueset, Staub, All Clad, Zwillings-Henckels and more.
A mezzanine area between the home store and grocery and bistro level below will act as a gathering space for customers and community members alike. In addition, a new walkway will provide direct pedestrian access between Union Street and Bluemound Road.
"As The Corners continues to innovate and enhance the customer experience, we’re thrilled to be taking part and elevating the shopping experience to one that has never been done before in Southeastern Wisconsin," said Ted Balistreri, co-owner at Sendik’s. "Our renovated store is so much more than a grocery store – it’s a bistro, home and clothing store, floral shop and, most importantly, community gathering space all in one."
The investment in Sendik’s Food Market at The Corners is a partnership between Sendik’s and IM Properties, the developer of The Corners, which has significant experience building successful grocery stores in the Chicago area.
"The new concept for Sendik’s at The Corners is directly aligned with our goal of offering a unique, high-quality experience for our patrons. The renovated space and innovative offerings are pushing the boundaries of a traditional grocery store, and I know our customers will love this new experience," said Robert Gould, head of U.S. Operations for IM Properties.
Sendik’s is planning a weekend full of events and activities for its grand opening. More details will be shared in the coming weeks.
