Albertsons sets opening date for large new Broadway store

Idaho AGC Going Up

Two years ago this month, BoiseDev broke news that Albertsons would tear down its small, dated store on Broadway and replace it with a large, 2-story showcase store.

Now, an opening date is set.

The Boise-based grocery giant will hold a grand opening on Saturday, July 21st, with a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m., as well as events and activities throughout the day and into the evening until 9 p.m.

The store will have a soft opening on Friday, July 20th, according to a company spokesperson.  

The new store is nearly three times as large as the old one, which crews tore down earlier this year.

 

“This store will have an expanded selection of hot, ready-to-eat meals, expanded fresh-cut fruits and vegetables, scratch bakery, indoor and outdoor dining so you can enjoy your meals right here,” division president Brad Street said during the groundbreaking last year.  “This store will be a destination for foodies; a place of food exploration, adventure and education— unlike anything this market has seen.”

The store will also include a Starbucks, “Broadway on the Rocks” bar area and more. The second-floor terrace is positioned across the street from a planned Boise State baseball park, and will provide visitors with views of future baseball action.

The company had announced it would brand the store as Market Street Idaho – but later back-tracked, keeping the store (just a few blocks from Albertsons Stadium) under the original banner which first debuted in Boise in 1939. A similarly-formated store under construction on Fairview Ave. near Eagle Rd. is still planned to use the Market Street brand.
