In its 50th-anniversary year, Landhope Farms, which had a presence in Oxford until 1999, has returned to the area, on Limestone Road just outside the borough, with a new store.
“The area is just overflowing with opportunity, and we saw a distinct need in the market for a store like ours,” said Dennis McCartney, Landhope’s Director of Operations and an Oxford resident. “Of course, there are other convenient stores in the area, but we’re proud of what we offer to our customers and really think we are distinctively different than the big corporate chains.”
Landhope Farms places an emphasis on quality and freshness and thus providing shoppers with the best products possible.
“Some people may call us a bit old-fashioned, but that is what sets us apart,” McCartney said. “We do not buy meat that is already sliced, vacuum-sealed, and ready to be placed in a hoagie roll. Our hoagies are made with freshly sliced meats and cheeses in our store. Our vegetables are also cut on-site. There isn’t another convenience store where you can get a hand-dipped ice cream cone or a quarter-pound Angus steakburger with fries.”
The new location employs 40 people, a mix of full-time and part-time staffers.
“We truly are not happy until every one of our customers is happy,” McCartney said.
