Many downtown residents and workers will be excited to know Fry’s Food Stores has officially announced the opening date of the latest location: Wednesday, October 23. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will begin at 7:30 a.m., followed by the official opening at 8 a.m.
The newly built, 67,000-square-foot, full-service grocery store is located on the northeast corner of First and Jefferson streets. Shoppers will notice the new urban design, as well as new technology like online ordering and pickup. Other features will include made-to-order sushi, and a deli, bakery, and pharmacy.
The new Fry’s is located in the bottom floor of CityScape’s Block 23 — a mixed-use residential, retail, and office complex still under construction. The first restaurant tenant, Blanco Tacos & Tequila, was announced in January.
