Fresh Market to host hiring event Sept. 30

To staff its new Dilworth store, Fresh Market will host a day-long career open house on Sept. 30 in Charlotte.

The new store at 1408 East Blvd. in Dilworth Gardens is slated to open in mid-November, just before Thanksgiving. The store will bring approximately 80-90 new jobs to the Charlotte area, the grocer said in a recent statement.

The hiring event will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hilton Charlotte Executive Park Hotel at 5624 Westpark Drive. Applicants must first apply online before the event at careers.thefreshmarket.com, using keyword 219. Qualified applicants will then receive an invite to schedule an appointment with the supermarket’s hiring team.

Available positions include assistant deli managers, assistant front end managers, assistant grocery specialist, assistant produce managers, bakers, bulk specialist, cheese specialist, gift/floral specialist, meat cutters and store receiving specialist, the grocer said.

The new market takes the place of the former Blacklion home furnishings store, which closed in January, in a 14,200-square-foot space. It is about one-third the size of a traditional Charlotte-area supermarket like Harris Teeter.

This will be the grocer’s 21st North Carolina location, and its sixth in the greater Charlotte area.
