The new Fresh Market in Dilworth will open Nov. 11.

A spokeswoman for the grocery store confirmed the date for the new Dilworth Gardens store, but offered no additional details.

Construction began earlier this spring on the approximately 14,200-square-foot market at 1408 East Blvd. in the former Blacklion home furnishings store, which closed in January.

Before that, the space housed Talley’s Green Grocery, a natural foods market that operated in Dilworth for 17 years before closing in 2008.

The new Fresh Market is also hosting a day-long career open house to staff the new store. The event is Wednesday at the Hilton Charlotte Executive Park Hotel. The grocer’s hiring team will conduct scheduled interviews with workers who applied online ahead of time.

The new store will bring approximately 80-90 new jobs to the Charlotte area, the grocer has said. This will be Fresh Market’s 21st North Carolina location, and its sixth in the greater Charlotte area.
