What kind of store, whether it is a King Soopers or a more upscale brand from the Kroger chain, is still being discussed, said Janice Sinden, chief of staff for Denver Mayor Michael Hancock.

Sinden said one option being explored is a Fresh Fare store - one of Kroger's new-style stores that has upscale meats and seafood, gourmet cheeses and natural and organic foods, as well as chef-prepared meals to take home, besides the usual array of grocery items.

"That's what we are advocating for, as upscale a market center as we can possibly secure in that community," Sinden said Tuesday.

King Soopers spokeswoman Kelli McGannon said the grocery-store chain tries to create stores "that meet the needs of each community, and this location would be no exception."
