UPDATE: Benny’s says it never gave market permission to use name »

(WPRI) — Benny’s is getting a reboot. Well, the name anyway.

Benny’s Fresh Market will be opening soon, according to the business’ Facebook page.

However, instead of snow shovels and lawn bags, Benny’s Fresh Market said it’s going to be selling a variety of products including produce, meats, eggs and dairy products, seafood, and gourmet foods.

While the logo looks like the old retail chain, it’s completely different owners.

“Although we do not have affiliation and are not owned by the original Benny’s, it fills us with nostalgia to be able to honor such an iconic piece of Rhode Island history,” the store said on Facebook. “Don’t worry though, Benny’s Fresh Market has legally obtained the rights to our name and logo.”

The market will be located on Kingstown Road in Richmond.

According to its Facebook page, the owners are a group with more than 100 years of experience in the food service and retail industry.
