Matherne's grocery store coming to LSU campus

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Matherne's Market is set to open a grocery store on LSU's campus, providing students, faculty, and staff with more options when it comes to dining.

The new 17,500 square foot store will mimic Matherne's downtown location and will focus on more fresh options, as well as prepared foods. The store will be located in the Nicholson Gateway corridor.

The store is located between West Chimes Street and Skip Bertram Drive on the bottom floor of the building, with a great view of Tiger Stadium.

"This new relationship with LSU campus life allows us to offer students and surrounding community members not only fresh food options, but customized trends we are now seeing in the food industry. We are proud to bring the Matherne's brand to the LSU campus, offering great variety, outstanding service, and on-trend products to our customers," said Tony Matherne, co-owner of the business.

The grocery store will hold a soft opening on Friday, August 24. The store's address is 85 Gateway Center Ln.

Matherne's Market has been open for more than 37 years and has several stores in Louisiana.
