The Parker Town Council is excited to announce that the construction of a new 125,000-square-foot King Soopers MarketPlace is underway in Parker. The new store, opening in late fall 2015, will anchor the Center, located at 17761 Cottonwood Drive in Parker.
“Having a grocery store back in Cottonwood has been a top priority for the Town,” said Mayor Mike Waid. “In addition to meeting a great need for area residents, this development will help foster a sense of community and attract complementary development.”
The King Soopers MarketPlace will offer a one-stop shopping location that meets the needs of today’s busy, health-conscious shopper. Traditional grocery offerings have been expanded to feature locally-grown produce; chef-prepared meals; specialty food bars such as sushi, cheese, chicken wings and soup; and more than 5,000 natural and organic items. The MarketPlace will also sell quality general merchandise, including apparel, dinnerware, small appliances and more.
King Soopers estimates that at least 300 construction jobs will be created through Colorado contractor Roche Construction and their subcontractors. When the store opens next fall, 250 newly-hired employees will serve residents throughout the Town and region.
