"Market of Choice promises to please anyone who seeks a complete shopping experience. Featuring an expansive produce selection, upscale kitchen, modern bakery, gourmet deli, specialty cheese, beer and wine shops, whole health and bulk items, and a full-service meat and seafood department, it brings an amazing array of choices to Corvallis.
“We’re excited to be here,” said Market of Choice President Rick Wright. “We’ve received many positive comments, employment inquires and questions about construction progress over the last couple months. Mostly, people just want to know when we’re opening, which makes us feel very welcomed.”
Owned and operated by the Wright family for 32 years, the business has grown from a single store to eight Markets from Portland to Ashland, operating with professional chefs, bakers, and stewards of wine, beer, cheese and coffee.
While growing their business, the Wrights have provided mostly full-time jobs for thousands of people who receive higher-than-average industry wages and benefits. Today, they employ 800 and help support many local farmers and producers by purchasing items grown and made in Oregon. The opening of their newest store in Corvallis will create more than 100 new jobs and 22 transfer positions for existing employees.
Eager to open, Store Manager Brett Wallace said he’s looking forward to getting to know the people of Corvallis and knows they’ll feel at home at Market of Choice.
“It’s a very exciting time for us and Corvallis. This Market is unlike anything else in the area, and people will love our selection,” Wallace said. “If you have ever been to a Market of Choice, you know that customer service comes first. If there’s something you can’t find, just ask – we’ll do our best to get it.”
