Second Mission Market opening in Anaheim, CA
Progressive Convenience, Inc. brings its refreshing Mission Market convenience store concept to Anaheim. The new store, its second, will open in the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) in December 2014. ARTIC is a brand new 67,000 square-foot facility that will provide a full range of transportation, dining, retail and entertainment options. ARTIC is located between Honda Center and Angel Stadium of Anaheim and is expected to serve about 10,000 people a day in its first year.
The first Mission Market opened in downtown Fullerton, CA in May 2013. Both Mission Markets share a common goal: to be convenience stores where consumers want to shop, rather than feel like they have to. The Anaheim store will debut an “Express” variation of the brand. Mission Market Express will focus on products most relevant to transit users, including a great selection of grab ‘n go foods such as salads, sandwiches, and sushi. Other offerings include fountain drinks, smoothies, fresh coffee and iced tea, an eating counter, California Lottery and a loyalty program. The new store will also strengthen Mission Market’s distinction as the only market in California that accepts Bitcoin as payment.
Progressive Convenience’s President, Roland Foss, is excited for the opportunity to serve ARTIC users. A U.S. Army veteran and entrepreneur, Foss says he is honored to be a part of this “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” where the store will serve many of the region’s busiest consumers. The choice of a second store is a critical step for any business. Foss believes the ARTIC location is a good fit for the Mission Market concept, saying: “We have the opportunity to nurture our brand together with this amazing building and the important services it will sustain and grow over the decades. This is an important step for our business and we firmly believe local consumers and the city will really benefit from our presence there.”
Mission Market Express expects to begin offering customers a pleasant convenience store experience on December 6. Its Grand Opening will coincide with the City of Anaheim’s Explore ARTIC Grand Opening Celebration on December 13. Mission Market Express will be located at 2626 E Katella Ave., Anaheim 92806.
