Bashas’ corporate workers will be moving into some new digs this spring, owner The Raley’s Companies announced.
Raley’s is currently investing in a new Arizona office space that will serve as Bashas’ new support center, and provide modern amenities and an open-concept layout that fosters collaboration to Bashas’ Division support and administrative team members, according to the company in a release.
Bashas’ team members will be able to move from their current office space location in Chandler, Arizona, at 22402 S. Basha Road to the new office space about 10 minutes away at 2650 W. Geronimo Place, also in Chandler in a few months.
“It goes without saying that Chandler has built a very close relationship with Bashas’ over the decades, and it was a top priority for us to keep these quality office jobs in our community,” said Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke in a statement. “We appreciate The Raley’s Companies proactive outreach to city leadership early on in the real estate process and we want to congratulate the team on its beautiful new office in the heart of Price Corridor.”
The new support center is part of the increased resources and investments that The Raley’s Companies is providing to Bashas’ since purchasing the company in 2021. The Bashas’ office is named “support center” because of the support it lends to retail stores, which in turn supports customers, said the company. The space will serve as the hub for operations and merchandising for Bashas’, Food City, AJ’s Fine Foods, Eddie’s Country Store and Bashas’ Diné grocery stores across Arizona and New Mexico.
“We are committed to preserving and enhancing the Bashas’ brands, and this includes our investment in an office that fosters innovation and collaboration. This modern workspace will provide new amenities and create an environment to inspire existing and future team members,” said Keith Knopf, president and CEO of The Raley’s Companies, in a statement.
The company’s store operations now include more than 235 locations under nine banners: Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill Foods, Raley’s O-N-E Market, Bashas’, Bashas’ Diné, Food City, AJ’s Fine Foods and Eddie’s Country Store.Bashas’ operates in Arizona, New Mexico and four tribal nations under five brands including: Bashas’, Food City, AJ’s Fine Foods, Eddie’s Country Store and Bashas’ Diné supermarkets. The company was founded in 1932, and has more than 110 grocery stores.
