Bashas’ Store Celebrates Grand Re-Opening In Carefree October 5

The Town of Carefree is getting a treat before Halloween and there aren’t any tricks in sight. On Wednesday, October 5, Bashas’ Supermarket will open the doors to its newly remodeled grocery store at 36889 North Tom Darlington Drive (the corner of Tom Darlington Drive and Carefree Drive) and host a grand reopening celebration.

When the celebration kicks off at 6am Wednesday, shoppers will get a first look at not only the new layout and expanded offerings, but also have the chance to shop for great grocery deals and enjoy plenty of samples with vendors such as Tea of a Kind, Huberts Lemonade, XINGTEA, High Brew Coffee, Marley Coffee and San Tan Brewing Company. The celebration will also include a cake sampling from 9am-1pm.

A special ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 9am October 5 with Mayor Les Peterson of the Town of Carefree and Johnny Basha, Vice President of Special Projects of Bashas’ Family of Stores.

“As a long-term retail partner, Bashas’ has fulfilled our needs for a number of years and has become a pillar of the community,” says Peterson. “We are thankful for the investment in Carefree and welcome the remodeled store back into the thriving Desert Foothills business community.”

On Saturday, October 8, the party continues as Bashas’ offers the first 200 shoppers who spend $50 or more at the Carefree store a free bag of groceries. Not to mention another round of cake sampling between 9am-1pm.

The newly-remodeled Bashas’ grocery store has several new amenities, including:

  • New sushi offerings and a soup and salad bar, which will have chefs assembling fresh rolls, available to grab-and-go, along with an assortment of hot soups to enjoy just in time for cooler temps and fresh salad offerings to compliment the perfect pairing on-the-go;
  • A new Starbucks with comfortable indoor and outdoor seating; and
  • An expanded Natural Choice area with an even wider selection of organic and better-for-you foods from which to choose.

Bashas’ is an Arizona-based, family-owned and -operated grocery chain known for its fresh produce, made-from-scratch bakery items, full-service butcher shop and award-winning chef’s entrées. Bashas’ was established in 1932 and since its inception has given more than $100 million back to the communities in which it serves. For more information, visit
