Andy Lucich has lived in downtown Phoenix for almost a decade and has worked in the area for the past five years. He didn’t always own a car during that time, which created problems.

“One of the biggest challenges was getting groceries,” he said. “I sometimes had to call Uber if getting a large order or I had to take light rail.”

Some of those challenges will disappear when downtown’s first supermarket opens at First Street and Jefferson, just north of Talking Stick Resort Arena.

Many downtown workers, and especially residents, can’t wait for the Fry’s ribbon-cutting Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m., with the store opening at 8 a.m.

“Most of the people in my building are excited and will be there when it opens,” said Nickie Casciaro, a bookkeeper and accountant who lives at the Orpheum Lofts a couple of blocks away. “I want to make sure I have a front-row view of the ribbon-cutting.”
