PHOENIX – The wait is almost over! Downtown Phoenix residents have been eagerly awaiting the opening of the new Fry’s grocery store located in Cityscape.

The store is the first of its kind in the urban community where grocery stores are few and far in between. This is especially good news for students at Arizona State University’s Downtown campus because the new Fry’s will be walking distance from their residence hall.

While we do not have an exact date for the opening, it is confirmed that it will fall sometime in the end of September Pam Giannonatti, Kroger Corporate Affairs Manager says in an email.

The 67,000 square foot Fry’s will have all the basic amenities of a grocery store such as a deli and baker as well as having a pharmacy, online ordering, and curbside assistance. It sounds like it will be worth the wait.

The actual grocery store will be located on the first floor with the second floor used for costumer parking-and the basement home to offices, product storage and food prep Giannonatti said in an email.

As part of the Block 23 development, the store will accompany approximately 330 apartments and 200,000 square feet of creative office space. It is also near bug Phoenix event bildings such as Chase Field, Talking Stick Resort Arena and The Phoenix Convention Center.

Mark your calendars! In September, we’re going to Fry’s!
