Although Star is the smallest city in Ada County, it saw the fastest growth rate of any city over 5,000 residents in Idaho, according to Census data crunched by HomeSnacks. From 2010-2016, Star added 40% more people – not including the outlying areas.

The grocer has remodeled nearly every store it owns in Idaho, and has expanded with the purchase of Paul’s Markets and planned construction of new stores in Boise’s Barber Valley and Meridian. It also is building a new store at Broadway and Beacon that will replace a small aging store on the corner.
