UPDATE: Liquor store & Broadway Noodles & Co. to close, building to be torn down

Albertsons’ new Broadway market may get some additional parking.

The chain has applied to tear down the last bit of the former Broadway Plaza shopping center. A large chunk of the center was demolished this spring to make way for the large new Albertsons store on the site.

An Idaho State Liquor Division spokesperson said the booze would move a few feet away to the former Gourmet Grill space across Rossi St.

Albertsons spokesperson Kathy Holland said “we are in the very early stages of exploring options for that space. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet.”

UPDATE: Noodles & Co. confirmed they would also close the Broadway store – and wouldn’t be relocating.

“We are constantly evaluating our portfolio of restaurants and recently made the difficult business decision to close our Boise State location on October 24, 2018,” Noodles & Co. Director of Communications Danielle Moore said. “We appreciate the patronage of area residents who’ve dined with us at this location over the years and we invite our guests to join us at our nearby Boise Mall and Meridian after this location closes.”

Moore said they hope to place affected employees at the other locations if possible.

The Wells Fargo Bank building on the site will remain.
