THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - Rouses Markets says it will open new stores in Kenner and Ponchatoula, opening up in buildings currently occupied by Winn-Dixie.

Donny Rouse, managing partner, tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1ETCWZE ) his company will open a new location this summer at 4041 Williams Blvd. in Kenner, moving out of its current spot at 1000 West Esplanade in Kenner.

Rouse says the shopping center where the current Kenner store is located is dead and they were unable to renegotiate a lease on the space.

The Thibodaux company will open up its first location in Ponchatoula, going into a store in the Berryland Shopping Center. Rouse says the Winn-Dixie store in that spot is set to close in October, possibly sooner.

Rouses has 45 locations stretching from Lafayette to Gulf Shores, Alabama.
