FREDERICK, Colorado — The next King Soopers Marketplace to open in Colorado will be located on the northern edge of the Denver metro area.
The Town of Frederick announced a 123,000-square-foot King Soopers Marketplace store will open at Colorado Boulevard and Highway 52.
The site on the northwest corner of the intersection was chosen in the Silverstone master-planned community after nearly two years of site selection and negotiations, Frederick officials said.
The King Soopers Marketplace will anchor the Silverstone Marketplace shopping center, which hopes to add approximately 75,000 square feet of additional retail, restaurant, and commercial space.
Groundbreaking is anticipated this autumn and the store is expected to employ 300 workers.
The large-scale King Soopers Marketplace format sells clothes and home goods in addition to groceries.
King Soopers opened its 12th Marketplace store in Colorado in January. The new 124,000-square-foot store is located at 13525 Quebec St. in northeast Thornton.
"We look forward to serving the Frederick community with a new 123,000-square-foot Marketplace store on the northwest corner of Colorado Blvd. and Highway 52," King Soopers Corporate Affairs Manager Jessica Trowbridge said. "At King Soopers, we’re Fresh for Everyone and we are excited to provide an exceptional customer experience while providing fresh, affordable, and delicious food in a one-stop shopping location that meets the needs of today’s busy, health-conscious shopper."
"Residents in Frederick and the southern portion of the Carbon Valley have expressed a desire for expanded amenities, specifically the prospect of a grocery store," Frederick Mayor Tracie Crites said.
"This project exemplifies the relationship between economic and community vitality by targeting amenities and opportunities that support the community's voice, enhance quality of life, and create a prosperous community. We welcome the new Marketplace and know its business tenants will thrive in our wonderful Town!"
