 CLEVELAND, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ Finast Supermarkets today announced the grand opening of their newest 24 hour superstore in Boardman, Ohio.

The 75,000 square foot Finast Food & Drug, the second in the greater Youngstown area, offers shoppers first class shopping at a total lower cost.
 "Fresh foods, floral specialties, pharmacies, and take-out foods are being repositioned to play a more important role in today's supermarket," noted Bill Holsworth, president and CEO of Finast Supermarkets. "Personalized Service, one-stop shopping, and dramatically low prices are the cornerstones of our shopping concept. Shoppers have told us we're setting new standards of excellence in this market.
