The high industrial ceiling and skylights give the new Eastbridge King Soopers a bright spacious feel, though at 60,000 square feet, it’s actually about the same size as the Quebec store. The polished concrete floor adds to the modern industrial look—and it can be cleaned easily without chemicals, says spokesperson Kelli McGannon.
Product selection will reflect the feedback King Soopers has received from the neighborhood—including grass fed beef and other natural and organic foods. McGannon points out that the store is designed with a focus on the perimeter, where the fresh products are located.
The natural vitamins and body care section has waist-height windows that bring in natural light and offer a view of the neighborhood, an unusual design feature in a grocery store. Refrigerated items in that section will include natural beverages and probiotic products.
As customers arrive in the store they enter the large produce section. On the other side at the front of the store is a large seasonal section—a stack of boxed wicker outdoor couches will likely be displayed there with the summer items.
King Soopers is optimistic that this new store, located at MLK Blvd. and Havana, will open on June 21.
