Ted’s Market will feature fresh produce, baked goods, and meats and will also offer prepared foods made of those ingredients.
In addition to a full line of seasonal produce, the store will offer deli meats and cheeses and an assortment of groceries, spices, dairy items, juices, frozen foods, wine and craft beer.
The store’s name has two meanings. Ted Hench was one of the founders of Chief Super Market, but “Ted’s” is also an acronym for what the market stands for, according to a statement: Treat people with respect; Enjoy great food; Delight the customer; Share new experiences.
Eric Hench, who has worked at Chief’s for 35 years and is now chairman of the board, will be a minority owner in Ted’s.
Renovations to the church will not affect the cemetery on the north side of the property.
