The Children’s Museum of Acadiana is teaming up with Super 1 Foods for the grand opening of Super 1 Foods, Petit Magasin (Little Store) Grocery Store Exhibit.

A ribbon-cutting celebration is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 8 at the museum in downtown Lafayette. Guests will receive a coupon for extra savings at Super 1 Foods and have a chance to win door prizes.

“We are thrilled to welcome Super 1 to the CMA family. A most beloved exhibit for over 22 years, the grocery store has a fresh authentic look and a new feel that radiates community. It’s a natural fit,” said Carol McManus, Executive Director of the Children’s Museum of Acadiana.

The Super 1 Foods Grocery Store is a highly interactive child-sized exhibit tailored toward children and their families, in which roleplay as both employees and shoppers is encouraged for a “real-life” shopping experience.

Brookshire Grocery Co. operates 47 Super 1 Foods stores in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana, including 12 locations throughout the Acadiana Region.

“Our company was founded 90 years ago, and giving back to the communities that support our stores has always been a big part of who we are,” said Brad Brookshire, Chairman and CEO for Brookshire Grocery Co. “We are very excited about Super 1 Foods’ partnership with the Children’s Museum to provide this fun learning experience for children in Acadiana.”
