Jungle Jims to open store in Eastgate

The world famous Jungle Jim’s International Market will be opening its second store in the former location of Bigg’s in Eastgate as early as 2012.

The Union Township Trustees appointed township administrator Ken Geis to work with Jungle Jim’s as they negotiate the purchase of the former grocery and the smaller stores within the building. Union Township will be the land holders in the agreement and will lease the property to Jungle Jim’s.

Jungle Jim’s director of development Phill Adams describes the unique store which has been a Fairfield landmark since 1974 as a multi-pronged grocery store centered around a typical American grocery with wings featuring a staggering array of international foods, fresh seafood, produce, meats, cheeses, wine, beer, and more.
