After announcing last summer that a new Safeway and Bartell Drug’s would be coming to Snooqualmie Ridge for the summer of 2017, the large construction project, coordinated by Snoqualmie-based developer EDG Commercial Real Estate, looks to be progressing on time.
After breaking ground in spring 2016 – and then finally revealing what stores would be occupying the buildings last June – construction crews are busy putting the final touches on the newest Bartell Drugs location, which should be opening in less than a month.
According to City of Snoqualmie Community Development Director Mark Hofman, Bartell’s should be welcoming customers the third weekend in July 2017.
Safeway won’t be too far behind. Hofman said the 43,000 sq. ft. grocery store is expected to open its doors around the third week of August. Crews are busy on the interior and installing store’s the fuel station at the corner of Snoqualmie Parkway and Douglas Street.
As for the much-anticipated Mod Pizza and drive-thru Starbucks? Well, Hofman said the opening dates for the two businesses is undetermined right now. The building that will be shared by the two stores broke ground a little later than Bartell’s and Safeway and crews have not begun interior work yet.
