Clark’s to open express store in Snowmass Base Village

Tom Clark, CEO of Clark’s Markets, and Tom Clark Jr., president, announced March 18 that their company will be opening a small store in Base Village while renovating its new location in the Snowmass Center.

“We are excited to be moving forward on our two new Snowmass Village markets,” the younger Clark said. “Clark’s Express will open in Base Village in April and offer an assortment of basic food items and necessities while we are constructing the new Clark’s Market at the Snowmass Center.

“At the center, Clark’s Market Snowmass will now expand horizontally into the old Sundance Liquor space in late spring/early summer, and that will allow us to offer an additional 4,000 square feet of goods and services.”

Clark’s Express is scheduled to open April 9 in Base Village in the old Plum TV location across from the Snowmass Hospitality check-in and next to Aspen 82’s media lounge. It is currently being remodeled. Short-term free parking will be available in the 30-minute lot next to the Base Village Conference Center. Local shuttle and bus service also can be accessed easily through the Base Village Transit Center.

“We think the opening of Clark’s Express in Base Village this April gives Snowmass Village residents and guests basic groceries while the new larger market is being constructed at the Snowmass Center,” said Matt Foley, director of commercial leasing for Related Colorado. “And expanding Clark’s Snowmass horizontally into the old Sundance space allows us to keep the community hallway in front of the market between Mountain Bayou and the post office.”

Clark’s Express will be a convenience-style market located in about 1,000 square feet of space. It will offer food staples and be open seven days a week while Clark’s Snowmass is under construction at the Snowmass Center.

Beginning May 1, Clark’s Market Snowmass will begin construction of its new store at the Snowmass Center. Clark’s has signed a lease for the space occupied by Village Market. By adding 4,200 square feet of space, Clark’s Snowmass will grow to a total of 14,310 square feet.

The expanded market will enable Clark’s to expand its retail offering by more than 50 percent as well as offer new services like chef-prepared meals, sushi, a coffee bar and a sample area with new products. A local delivery service also will be available.

As announced a couple of weeks ago, Sundance Liquor will be moving to its new, expanded, street-front location in the old Aspen Sports space at the Snowmass Center.

Coordination between Clark’s and Sundance will allow Snowmass Village consumers to take advantage of new events at the Snowmass Center, such as cookouts and wine pairings.

Clark’s Market Snowmass is scheduled to open in late June or early July. Clark’s Express is expected to remain open as a convenience store after the larger location opens.
