Aspen City Market to close for 21⁄2 weeks
October 22, 2010
ASPEN – The City Market in Aspen will be closed from Oct. 28 through Nov. 12 to accommodate a remodeling project at the Cooper Avenue grocer.
While the remodeling project will not be complete when the supermarket re-opens on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 13, the closing “will allow us to get further into the project than we would if it were open,” said Rhonda Remy, a Denver-based spokeswoman for City Market and King Soopers, which are owned by Cincinnati-based The Kroger Company.
City Market began a major renovation on the Aspen grocery store in the spring. The six- to nine-month job involves expanding and updating the market; to accomplish this, the store is essentially being taken apart and rebuilt, row by row.
Aspen residents have a couple of nearby options to bag their groceries.
Clark’s Market is located across from the post office off Puppy Smith Road, and there’s also Roxy’s Market, which is located outside of Aspen city limits in the Airport Business Center off of Highway 82.
