The United Family opened its newest United Supermarkets location, in Wichita Falls, Texas, on May 24. Located at 2720 Southwest Parkway, the store marks the company’s fourth location in the city, counting the Burkburnett store, and the 98th location for The United Family.

In its 107th year of operation, United Supermarkets LLC – d.b.a. The United Family – is a Texas-based grocery chain with stores in 54 communities in Texas and New Mexico. The company said its newest store is a continuation of the modern evolution of its flagship banner — a “next-generation” United Supermarkets. The new Wichita Falls store is said to offer many of the things people know and love while also showing off a wider selection of products and services along with an updated look.

“We are so excited and proud to be opening this new location in the Wichita Falls community,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family. “It is beautiful, spacious and full of some of the best United Supermarkets has to offer its guests. Not to mention it is especially meaningful to our company to put a United Supermarkets store in this neighborhood and bring commerce back to an empty building.” The new location is in what used to be an Albertsons supermarket and then a Cash Savers store.
