The new 75,000 square-foot warehouse will prepare the company for their fourth generation of leaders
Banner Wholesale Grocers, a family-owned-and-operated independent grocer specializing in American and Hispanic products, announced they are moving to a brand new 75,000 square foot facility in the fall. The company is the Chicago area’s leader in the Hispanic food industry offering over 4,500 items.
Designed from the ground-up, the new building allows customers the opportunity to utilize the entire warehouse during shopping hours. This is an improvement of their current layout, which has housed the company since 2001. “When we established Banner Wholesale Grocers, we were located in the historical south water market section of Chicago,” said Richard Saltzman, President of Banner Wholesale. “As our company has grown since 1926, so has our home. Over the last five years alone our business has doubled, and our new warehouse has been designed to support that growth, as well as prepare us for the fourth generation of leaders.”
Design features include a cash and carry at the front, providing a seamless one-stop shopping experience. This is an enhancement from their current location, where the cash and carry is located in a showroom disconnected from the heart of the space. There will also be a taqueria on-site, which will serve Banner’s customers. This elevates the shopping by accommodating customers who want to spend more time by offering them the option to sit, eat and relax.
Banner Wholesale Grocers’ close proximity to I-55 Damen exit (Stevenson Expressway) allows the company to service wholesale products to not just the Chicago area, but the entire Midwest region. The new location is located across the street from their current facility and is expected to complete by mid-September.
