NEWS RELEASE (May 26, 2021) – Fareway today held a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new store located at 13150 Fort Street in Omaha. The 21,000 square foot grocery store provides only the best in fresh, highest quality meat; a second-to-none full-service butcher counter; farm-fresh produce; low, competitive prices; and the highest level of customer service, including to-you-car carryout. Additionally, the location also offers online shopping and curbside pick-up, available at Shop.Fareway.com.
“We are excited to join this vibrant and growing area of Omaha and look forward to serving neighborhood businesses and residents,” said Fareway President and CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We want to thank the seller, developer, and other community leaders for their support in making this store a reality.”
“God created this little part of earth, which came to be described as 132nd and Fort Street. Seven generations ago, it was entrusted to the Klinker family, who produced crops, cattle, hogs, and chickens to feed their community,” said Mark Klinker, seller. “This little piece of earth will now be entrusted to Fareway, and although it will look different, Fareway’s mission will still be the same. To continue to provide for the highest quality beef, pork, chicken, and produce to feed the community.”
“On behalf of the City of Omaha, I would like to warmly welcome this fourth Fareway location to the western Omaha community,” said Councilmember Aimee Melton. “Fareway is a great addition and will make for an even more desirable neighborhood for prospective businesses and residents.”
The new store will be managed by Grocery Manager Joel Wymore and Market Manager Steve Steinfeldt. The store will be open for normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. beginning today.
