Lynchburg, VA - Wednesday is the day gourmet food lovers in the Hill City have been waiting for. The Fresh Market in Lynchburg opened up for the first time Wednesday morning.
During the grand opening, there were chef demonstrations and food samplings. All in all, there was a lot of excitement for the first day of the store.
"By 5:30 we had people standing in line. The crowd grew to over 400 or 500 people. Of course they are all in the store at the present. The excitement around Lynchburg in having a store here has just been phenomenal," said William Webb, the store manager.
The Fresh Market is also going to be a partner with Daily Bread. Plus, in remembrance of the events of 9/11, the store is going to donate at least 5 % of grand opening sales to the Travis Manion Foundation's 9/11 Heroes Run.
