Rouses acquired the 32 acre facility at the intersection of U.S. 90 and La. Highway 311 last week. Financial details were not released. The property includes 310,000 square feet of space and land to add more warehouses, coolers and freezers.

“It’s pretty new and in great condition,” said Donny Rouse, chief executive officer of the grocery store chain.
