Kings Soopers Coming to Reunion MarketPlace Center

by Sheri Troy on September 7, 2011


With construction equipment moving in the background, more than 40 attendees celebrated the official groundbreaking for the 123,000-square-foot King Soopers MarketPlace in Reunion’s ‘Reunion Marketplace Center’ in Commerce City.  The new store, opening in fall 2012, will be the cornerstone for Shea Properties’ 22-acre retail center located at 104th Avenue and Chambers Road.

“Over the last 10 years, the growth in the northern range has helped double Commerce City’s population.  More rooftops meant more expectations for services and stores,” said Mayor Paul Natale.  “A grocery store has been a top priority for the city and today’s event – thanks in part to my city council colleagues – addresses a long-standing need for our residents and helps foster a sense of community.”

“As the community’s developer, we recognize how valuable this is to Reunion and we’re excited that King Soopers has chosen to invest in this area,” said Chetter Latcham, president of Shea Homes Colorado.  “The opening of this store is further indication of the continuing success and growth of Reunion.  We realize this provides excellent exposure to our community and further enhances the home-buying and job opportunities that are available in the Northern Range.  We know this store will draw thousands of shoppers to our area and we look forward to their seeing first-hand the robust community that is Reunion.” 

The King Soopers MarketPlace, the second concept store of its kind in the metro area and the fourth statewide, offers a one-stop shopping location that meets the needs of today’s busy, health-conscious shopper.  Traditional grocery offerings are expanded to feature locally grown produce; chef-prepared meals; specialty food bars such as sushi, cheese, chicken wings and soup; and more than 5,000 natural and organic items.  The MarketPlace will also sell quality merchandise including home good, furniture, dinnerware, small appliances and more. 

“This is a great location for metro-Denver’s second MarketPlace concept and the partnership with the city was critical to our decision to locate here,” said Russ Dispense, president of King Soopers.  “As a Colorado company we are very excited about serving this community as a solution for much of what their family needs.”

King Soopers estimates that at least 300 construction jobs will be created through Coloardo contractor Mark Young Construction and their subcontractors.  When the store opens next fall, 250-newly-hired employees will serve residents throughout the city and region.

Hi Gayle,
