Rouses to open fourth store in Mississippi

Rouses Markets is expanding in Mississippi again.

The Louisiana-based grocery chain announced Friday it will break ground in the spring on a store in Picayune.

The 40,000 square foot Rouses coming to Picayune will be at the corner of Highway 59 and Highway 43 north on a 4.4  acre property, part of the River Ridge Shopping Center, which the Rouses family purchased.

The anticipated opening is scheduled for 2024.

It’s the fourth store being built in Mississippi and will bring about 200 jobs to the area.

Rouses already has markets in Diamondhead, Gulfport, and Ocean Springs.
