The United Family on Wednesday announced plans to convert to Market Street stores the Albertsons Marketplace stores at 4706 N. Robert Taylor, president of Lubbock-based The United Family, said the company had been looking for some time for the right locations in Midland and Odessa. He said converting the stores into Market Street will cost about $5 million for each location.
When the Midland and Odessa stores are complete, there will be 15 Market Street locations throughout Texas. In addition to the pharmacy, there will be a Living Well section, staffed by a specialist, that will offer natural and organic body-care products and supplements.
Market Street will also contain the traditional departments -- from floral to produce to bulk foods -- that are found in Albertsons Marketplace. A concierge will be on hand to help coordinate needs — for example, help a bride with the cake, flowers and catering without having to go to each department, Taylor said.


These expanded departments not only require a lot more equipment but more employees, he said.
Current team members will be rotated through existing Market Street stores for specialty training, he said. Taylor said the goal of the Market Street concept is to serve both shoppers who want to stretch their shopping dollar and those who want specialty items or foods, or to be able to purchase a gourmet meal to serve their families or guests.
Work will begin in Midland first, and halfway through the project will begin in Odessa in order to allow subcontractors to move between the two stores, Taylor said. The others are in Abilene, Allen, Amarillo, Colleyville, Coppell, Flower Mound, Frisco, Lubbock (three locations) McKinney, Plano and Wichita Falls. The prepared food section will be expanded to include “grab-and-go” restaurant-quality dishes or whole meals.
Market Street’s catering service will deliver and set up food, but will not provide servers, he said.


He estimated a Market Street will require about 400 employees, up from the 100 to 150 at an Albertsons Marketplace. The menu, which Taylor said will change periodically, will include comfort food as well as healthy options. A coffee shop will serve specialty coffees, have Wi-Fi service and seating, though customers can choose to sit in the dining room.
