Poulsbo’s Central Market now Town & Country

Central Market in Poulsbo has begun implementing its new Town & Country Market signs and store branding, bringing the longtime local supermarket under the original family name.

The store, opened in 1995, will not change the in-store experience – same team, same shopping experience and same products, a news release says. Updates will include new interior and exterior signs only. All changes are expected to be finalized by Oct. 20, barring unexpected delays.

“Our first Central Market has been a community hub for Poulsbo since its opening in 1995, and we understand the strong connection our shoppers have with the name,” said Bill Weymer, CEO of Town & Country for 11 years. “In deciding to bring all of our markets under the original Town & Country Markets name, we deeply considered our community and the future of our company. This unification is an essential part of our path forward – enabling us to continue to bring fresh inspiration through discovery and excitement around food while building more connections for the next 65 years and beyond.”

T&C Markets announced its decision to bring all six of its stores under its family name late last year, with the first refresh at Mill Creek followed by Ballard and Shoreline. T&C originally opened on Bainbridge Island in 1957.

The supermarket chain also launched a new website with expanded digital content for integrated, interactive and enhanced online shopping. Website visitors enjoy weekly recipes, partner stories, online ordering with personal shoppers, and scheduled all-electric, zero emissions delivery, the release states.
