Karns Readies for Expansion with 8th Store in Carlisle
Seven-store, Mechanicsburg, Pa.-based Karns Quality Foods will open its eighth location on Springs Road in Carlisle Pa., which will add an estimated 100 jobs to the community.
Highlights of the forthcoming 39,000-square-foot store, which is expected to open in late spring 2013, includes a new frozen and dairy department, full service meat department, expanded produce department, loyalty card program, updated décor package, new front end system and self-checkout.
“Karns Foods is excited about the opportunity to be joining the Carlisle community,” said Scott Karns, president and CEO of the regional grocer, who anticipates local shoppers’ enthusiasm for what he predicts will be “the best meat department in the region.”
Founded in 1959 by David Karns, the family-owned Karns Quality Foods' existing stores are located in the south central Pa. communities of Boiling Springs, Mechanicsburg (Hampden Square Center), New Bloomfield, Lemoyne, Hershey, Middletown and Linglestown (Paxton Square Center).
