All of us at Roche Bros. are excited to announce that our new Downtown Crossing supermarket will open on Wednesday, April 29 in the newly restored Burnham Building on Summer St. in downtown Boston.
Join us at our grand opening celebration, which will begin with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m., followed by a full day of festivities in and outside the store!
Roche Bros. is the first large-scale grocery store to be built in Boston’s Downtown Crossing and we can’t wait to bring our new neighborhood fresh food, favorite national grocery brands, local artisan finds, New England flavors and a wide selection of creative prepared foods.
For Roche Bros. owners Rick & Ed, opening a new store in Boston expands our presence in the heart of the city where Roche Bros. began: “The Roche family has been part of the Boston community since 1952 when our dad Pat and Uncle Bud opened a small neighborhood meat market in Roslindale Square. We’ve grown up and expanded over the past 60 years, and it is special to our family to be opening a new location right in the very heart of the city. We are honored to have earned this place in the community and are looking forward to serving our new neighborhood,” said Rick.
Our new market, located at 8 Summer Street, will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays.
At the street level, you will find an extensive array of ready-to-eat food – including satisfying meals, healthy snacks and sweet treats for any time of day. From creative, sandwiches, soups and salads to breakfast pastries and freshly rolled sushi, you’ll find what you want any time, straight from our kitchen and ready to go. Special highlights include Roche Bros. signature chocolate chip cookies and a coffee bar. Outside the store, enjoy our street-side seating and an outdoor fruit and flower stand.
Downstairs, in the former space of the historic Filene’s Basement, is a full-service supermarket, where you can shop for a vast assortment of fresh food, national and local grocery brands and prepared foods. The market is complete with a bakery, deli, specialty cheeses, high-quality meats at great value and fresh-off-the-boat seafood.
When you need to get a nice dinner on the table but don’t have time for chopping, stop by the produce department’s “Chop Shop” and choose from more than 40 varieties of veggies cut fresh daily in the store, chef-style and recipe-ready. The store will also offer Boston customers full-service catering for business and social events, festive event packages for special occasions, and grocery delivery to the home or office after shopping in the store. Online ordering with home delivery will also be available, like all of our locations.
Opening Day Events
On April 29, opening day will kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony from 9:30-10 a.m. Then, throughout the day, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the store’s offerings will extend into Summer Street with outdoor sampling booths as part of the “Road to Roche Bros.” grand opening festivities.
In the evening, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Boston-based country band Dalton & the Sheriffs will play a free concert for guests just outside the Summer Street entrance.
We look forward to seeing you there and to serving our new neighborhood!
