Buehler’s Fresh Foods Wooster Milltown Remodel Update

WOOSTER, Ohio- May 6, 2014 With the near completion of Phases 1 and 2 of Buehler’s Wooster Milltown remodeling project, details for Phase 3 are announced. Rapid and exciting changes will begin in May when the Produce Department will move to the front of the store, just inside the entrance, with a welcomed display of the freshest fruits and vegetables, as well as organic, fresh cut and local selections. The Liquor Agency will be relocated from its current location (Gary’s Liquor Agency in the strip center) to its new location – the area currently occupied by produce inside Buehler’s Milltown. Once relocated, the agency will be a “store within a store,” housed within a walled off area and flanked by Buehler’s current beer and wine selections. This will take place by late June.

“Our Sign the Beam promotion was a huge success, allowing employees and customers to be part of history,” stated Jack Kerby, Store Manager Buehler’s Wooster Milltown. “as signatures now fill a structural steel I-beam that will be lifted and exposed, a permanent part of the front entrance architecture.” Jack added, “The Handprints in History promotion is in effect now through July 6, and will allow ten of KidzPark kids’ handprints to be part of the stone foundation in the newly remodeled entrance.”

June will bring dramatic upgrades to the front entrance. The existing patio will be encased in glass, with doors on either side, allowing for “no such thing as a poor parking spot.” The inviting new store entrance will house the grocery carts, and the restrooms will get a facelift.

The Food Service section will begin to take shape in late summer with a new and exciting design and concept. The Mill Restaurant will be transformed to a new fast-casual, market-style dining concept which will provide a quiet, relaxed atmosphere to sit down and enjoy an exciting array of chef-prepared foods. Coming to Milltown will be made-to-order fresh foods: freshly-made hand-stretched pizza (whole or by the slice), custom signature sandwiches using fresh-baked breads from the bakery, and authentic wok-fired Chinese cuisine. This new concept will also include six varieties hot soups made from scratch, expanded salad bar, sushi rolled by hand daily by our in-store sushi chefs, and freshly prepared entrees and sides dishes (hot or cold); all available as take-home or dine-in options. A convenient self-serve drink area and designated register will give customers the value and convenience they have been asking for, and a new chef school will provide a training ground for new recipes and new menu items, while Milltown shoppers watch through a glass partition.
