Oregon grocer brings gourmet food experience, neighborhood shopping appeal to Beaverton

Market of Choice opens at Timberland Town Center January 15

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Market of Choice opened its newest store on January 15, anchoring the upscale Timberland Town Center on NW Lost Springs Terrance and NW Cedar Falls Drive, providing a unique grocery store experience for its Cedar Mill neighbors.

Family-owned and operated in Oregon for 35 years, Market of Choice offers an extensive selection of the finest natural, organic, conventional and local products at affordable prices, while providing customers a relaxing and enjoyable shopping experience.

“We’re excited to be part of the Cedar Mill neighborhood,” said Market of Choice President Rick Wright. “We’ve received many positive comments, employment inquires and questions about our progress over the last year. Mostly, people have just wanted to know when we’re opening, which makes us feel very welcomed.”

Market features
Similar to its flagship store in Eugene, the new Cedar Mill market features an expansive produce selection, scratch-made baked goods, specialty cheeses, a beer and wine shop, whole health and bulk items, a full-service meat and seafood department, and a gourmet deli and kitchen offering take-away meals created by in-house chefs. The Cedar Mill location will also feature a growler station and wine bar, as well as a juice bar.

Eco efforts
Similar to other Market of Choice stores, the Cedar Mill market features many eco-friendly operating components, including extensive LED lighting, solar tracking skylights and a state-of-the-art glycol refrigerant, an organic compound that creates an efficient heat and hot water reclamation system. Lighting choices will reduce the store’s dependency on electricity for lighting by 75 percent. In addition to traditional recycling, the store will separate compostable food waste and landfill waste.

Providing jobs
While growing their business over the years, the Wrights have provided mostly full-time jobs for thousands of people who receive higher-than-industry-average wages and benefits. The opening of their newest store in Cedar Mill will create more than 217 new jobs and support 27 transfer positions for existing employees.
