Hi Nabor Supermarket is preparing to break ground on its fourth supermarket, which will be located between Denham Springs and Watson.
President Jim Crifasi wouldn’t provide many details about the new store, saying only that the company was talking with architects and going through wetlands mitigation issues for the new location. The store will be near the Magnolia Beach Road and Range Avenue intersection.
Customer demand for a Hi Nabor in that area prompted the new location, Crifasi says, adding that some customers from the Watson-area commute to shop at one of the Hi Nabor stores in Baton Rouge.
“A lot of our customer base that used to live (in Baton Rouge) moved out there,” Crifasi says.
Hi Nabor also operates stores on Jones Creek Road, Florida Boulevard and Winbourne Avenue in Baton Rouge.
