The doors opened to a new Rouses Market grocery store in Ponchatoula, Louisiana on April 20, 2016. Rouses will now anchor the Berryland Shopping Center on West Pine Street (Highway 22) in the 48,000 square foot space previously occupied by Winn Dixie. The grand opening comes after a six month vacancy during which $3 million in renovations were complete to both the interior and exterior of the building. Additional renovations are currently underway to update the entire façade of the shopping center. The new Rouses location comes after a wave of recent development in Ponchatoula. Some of the new developments include a new Wal Mart, Taco Bell, Racetrack, and First Guaranty Bank branch.
