Big Y’s “Local Hispanic Vendor Discovery Tour” is underway. The grocery chain said that in preparation for the grand re-opening of the newly remodeled West Springfield store, they are searching for more locally produced Hispanic & Latin American items to be featured.

According to the company, the new store design incorporates modern elements to inspire guests and reflect each store’s local community.

The Hispanic grocery section of the remodeled Big Y supermarket in West Springfield features traditional ingredients and pantry staples from throughout Latin America,

including Brazil and the Caribbean. It offers a selection of tropical fruits, vegetables such as plantains, ajicito peppers, an expanded selection of root vegetables, sugar cane, chayote, an assortment of chili peppers, and much more. 

While they are currently looking for Hispanic and Latin American products, Big Y is always interested in adding new partners of all types from their store regions.

They partner with over 500 local businesses with over 4,000 individual local products. These items can be found across every department in their stores.

“Our mission at Big Y has always been to provide our customers with a diverse selection of high-quality products that meet their culinary needs and preferences,” said Mike Cormier, Senior V.P. of Sales and Marketing at Big Y. “With the introduction of our new Hispanic grocery section, we are excited to offer an even broader range of options, allowing our customers to explore and experience the rich and vibrant flavors of Latin American cuisine,” he added.

Big Y Foods, Inc. is one of New England’s largest independently owned supermarket chains. Founded in 1936 by brothers Paul and Gerald D’Amour, the store was named after an intersection in Chicopee, Massachusetts, where two roads converge to form a “Y.”

The company operates 84 locations throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut, including 70 supermarkets, Table & Vine Fine Wines and Liquors, and 13 Big Y Express gas and convenience locations with almost 12,000 employees.
