The following is a press release from Rouses 


THIBODAUX, LA – (12/6/18) – Rouses Markets will expand its footprint in Lower Alabama with a new store in Daphne, a family-oriented community in Baldwin County on the eastern shoreline of Mobile Bay. Donny Rouse, CEO, confirmed the acquisition of the 53,000-plus-square foot store — a former Winn—Dixie — at 3075 US Highway 98.

There are already three Rouses Markets in Baldwin County; the company’s other four Alabama locations are in neighboring Mobile County. Mayor Dane Haygood says, “The City of Daphne is excited to welcome Rouses Market to our Jubilee City,” adding, “the friendly, family-oriented culture of Rouse’s Market is consistent with the values of our community.”

Donny Rouse is also excited about opening in the city. “Die-hard fans will travel more than 20 miles to shop at one of our stores,” says Rouse. “While I love that people who live in Daphne will drive 20 or 30 minutes to buy one of our signature Gentilly cakes, I love even more giving them their own Rouses Market closer to home.”

The Daphne store will open late Spring 2019. Rouses Markets employs 150 to 200 workers in each of its stores. Typically the company begins hiring two or three months prior to opening.
