It has been 671 days since Hurricane Laura tore through Market Basket on Ryan Street and ripped the entire shopping mall to shreds. Slowly workers began to put the pieces back together. We all knew eventually, this day would come.

Market Basket worked hard to not only rebuild all of their stores that were impacted by the Hurricanes, and floods, but also build them back better. Most of their stores in the area came back better than ever when they were rebuilt and the Lake Charles store located on Ryan Street is no exception.

Stop by the re-opened, and renovated, Market Basket on Ryan Street and check out how beautiful it is inside!
