The team with Go Grocer is making progress with the build out in the Market Space.
Lighting and plumbing work is mostly done, as well as the flooring. They’ve also formally applied for the needed licenses, and expect to be able to begin operations, once the build out is finished and the store is stocked. This includes the planned Cafe AND Pharmacy. In fact, the build out for pharmacy operation, which will be located where the deli used to be, is set to get into full swing on Monday April 25th.
At present, they say to expect an opening sometime between May and June.
New paneling being installed.
Pharmacy moving in, where the old Deli used to be.
Cafe to be located near the entrance, where the former operators office and lottery desk was located.
Applications for necessary licensing are in.
Work is underway now to build out the space to accommodate their operation. Workers have already started demolishing the old floor, removing old and antiquated fixtures and equipment, upgrading the lighting fixtures to accommodate LED bulbs, and started running new plumbing lines to allow for a cafe operation toward the front of the space:
It hasn’t been on. It has the “Park Tower Market” logo at the top. And, where’s the date, time and temperature?
The Board also approved replacement of the signage. The current sign already had wiring problems, and repairs were pending the outcome of the negotiations for the market lease. Once it was clear the previous operator would not be continuing, and Go Grocer would be taking over, spending money on wiring would have been wasteful.
Plans are underway to replace the sign – basically as is. A new multi-color LED panel and software will be installed for a more attractive and contemporary display. And our team will be able to access and update the sign via a wireless app.
As work gets underway and the Go Grocer operation takes shape, we will continue to keep you updated.
