Take note – there is something new coming to Mequon!
A new Outpost Natural Foods supermarket is already under construction, on the northeast corner of Mequon and Wauwatosa Roads in Mequon.
As the fourth Outpost Natural Foods store, and the very first in Ozaukee County, this 16,000-square-foot space will provide yet another option for health-conscious Mequon shoppers.
Commitment to Healthy
What makes Outpost Natural Foods different from the other supermarkets Mequonites currently frequent? It’s their whole-hearted commitment to “food grown the way it used to be”. That means a commitment to:
- Organic — Outpost supports organic farming practices and food grown without the use of synthetic chemical pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.
- Local — Outpost purchases locally grown and produced food items whenever possible. Buying local keeps more dollars in the community.
- Fair Trade — Whenever possible, Outpost offers Fair Trade certified products because Fair Trade products ultimately help some of the poorest people in the world develop a livelihood that will sustain themselves.
- GMO-Free — Foods grown containing genetically modified organisms (GMO) compromise the health and safety of the food supply in general. As part of their commitment to organic, Outpost Natural will offer GMO-Free products.
To get the Outpost Natural Foods store kickstarted, the Mequon Common Council approved a proposal to provide $229,241 in assistance for the $4.1 million development. The money will be provided through the city’s tax incremental financing district along Mequon Road between Wauwatosa Road and the Milwaukee River. A part of Outpost’s annual property tax will be rebated to the company over a four year period.
If you’re eager to learn more about Outpost Natural Foods, you can visit one of their other three stores in the greater Milwaukee area. They are at 100 E. Capitol Drive, Milwaukee; 7000 W. State St., Wauwatosa; and 2826 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., in Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood.
In the meantime, if you want to follow the construction progress at the Mequon location, Outpost is providing updates on their website.
Can’t wait for the Mequon Natural Outpost to be here? It will be here before you know it; it’s scheduled to open by summer 2014.
