LaBonne's Markets in Prospect, CT, to hold grand opening
LaBonne's Markets, located at 75 Waterbury Road in Prospect, CT, will hold its grand opening celebration Saturday, Sept. 26, from 11 a.m. to 5 pm.
The latest of four LaBonne's Markets, all owned by Bob LaBonne Jr. and Robert LaBonne III, boasts an extensive selection of goods including humanely raised meats, fresh seafood, organic produce, store made meals and sandwiches, craft beer, specialty local products, and vegetarian and vegan options.
The grand opening celebration kicks off at 8 a.m. when Prospect Mayor Bob Chatfield joins the LaBonne family and crew for a very special ribbon-cutting ceremony.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., guests can expect local food trucks serving up delicious fair food, live music, live comedy, games, giveaways and over two dozen local vendor and organization information and sample booths. For children, the Prospect Volunteer Fire Department and EMS will be hosting a show-and-tell of their emergency response vehicles, Prospect PD will be staging a meet-and-greet with K-9 unit Mayhem, and LaBonne's very own LaBear will be handing out free cookies, bananas, balloons and "LaBonne's" branded neck gaiters.
The LaBonne family and crew look forward to continuing to cultivate a relationship with the town of Prospect, which began in late December 2019 when they acquired the former Oliver's Supermarket. "LaBonne's is very proud to carry on the values and hometown service that George Oliver and Len Noble established the last 70 years in Prospect," Bob LaBonne Jr. said in a press release. He added that "none of this would have been able to have happened without the 35 years of support from the Bozzuto family and Bozzuto's team of associates."
With stores already in Watertown, Woodbury and Salisbury, the LaBonne name has become synonymous with consistent quality, remarkable care, honesty and respect — which also happen to be the brand's core values.
