JOHNSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Market Basket is set to open its first Rhode Island location in Johnston. 

The supermarket will be located at 1300 Hartford Avenue, where BJ’s Wholesale Club used to be. It’s scheduled to open next year.

“I am very happy and excited that Market Basket has decided to put their first store in Johnston. It is a perfect fit for the company and our great town,” said Johnston Mayor Joe Polisena.

“We appreciate the many Rhode Island shoppers who support our Market Basket stores located just over the Massachusetts border and are excited that now they will have a much more convenient location to shop and call their own,” said Arthur T. Demoulas, president and CEO of Demoulas Super Markets Inc.

Currently, Rhode Island’s nearest Market Basket location is in South Attleboro, close to the Pawtucket border.
