Fresh Thyme Market has named the store director for its new City Foundry location in St. Louis, Missouri, set to open later this year. Jane Wilcox will oversee the store and its expansive local products along with private label natural and organic items.
Wilcox will lead the Fresh Thyme Market Foundry store with more than 30 years of grocery experience. Wilcox's grocery experience ranges from customer service and associate-level work to store management and culture shaping and diversity, equity and inclusion from the corporate level. She will oversee the new Foundry store's operations and will also be a key player in community partnerships and customer engagement in the new concept store. She's also a military veteran, who previously served several years in the U.S. Navy.
"I started my career as a bagger and worked my way through the ranks until I reached my goal of being a store director," Wilcox said. "I am extremely excited to bring my unrelenting passion for customer service, community engagement and teammate development to the new Fresh Thyme Market Foundry Store."
Fresh Thyme Market is a full-service specialty retailer focusing on fresh, healthy, natural, and organic offerings at affordable prices in 70 stores in 10 states.
"Community is at the core of everything we do at Fresh Thyme," said Gerald Melville, Fresh Thyme Market president. "We know our customers appreciate supporting local, so we're really pleased to partner with RangeMe to offer products made in the St. Louis area to ensure they have the best shopping experience possible."
