New-to-market grocer to open at NE Town Center
This grocer will improve northeast Oklahoma City residents' access to food
Finding a grocery store for Northeast Town Center wasn't easy.
But developers of the retail project at NE 36 and Kelley confirmed Wednesday they've signed a deal with Save-A-Lot to open an 18,000-square-foot store as a major anchor for the rebuilt shopping center.
Rick Brown, an architect who recently designed other shopping center overhauls and whose father-in-law, Charles Shadid, owns the center, said the Save-A-Lot should open before the end of this year.
"Obviously, the grocery store piece was the part that was the toughest to get," Brown said Wednesday. "Trying to find a grocery retail that's not Target or Walmart these days is really difficult. There are just not many smaller, neighborhood grocers around these days."
