Downtown Phoenix now has its very first grocery store at least in the modern era. Fry's opened right in the heart of downtown at Central Avenue and Washington today. The store is open from 5am to 11pm is welcome sight for downtown condo and apartment dwellers that had to take Ubers or light rail to uptown or surrounding areas to get their groceries.

 

Fry's Opening Downtown Phoenix

                A Food "Desert" no more, Fry's Grocery Store Opens October 23 in Downtown Phoenix

 

Chase Hunter of the Arizona Republic reported on October 23, 2019, "Downtown Phoenix has its first full-service grocery store with the grand opening Wednesday of a new Fry's.

Fry's executives predict the opening of the store at 125 E. Washington St. will have a butterfly effect on the entire community, not only giving downtown residents the convenience of walking or using public transit to get groceries, but also giving residents farther out more reasons to come downtown in the first place. 

 

"I think it's a game changer," Fry's store president Monica Garnes said. "When I think about when you move anywhere, you always think about, 'Where is my Fry's or where is my local grocery store?' So now, the residents already in downtown Phoenix have a convenient grocery store right at their fingertips." 

 

The store is not just bringing fresh produce to the downtown area, Garnes said, it's also creating 250 jobs. 

 

"It's going to spur more development in the city, to be quite honest, with more apartments, more condos," Garnes said. "They have now the cornerstone that really brings a community together."

 

No that downtown Phoenix is no longer a food DESERT, you may want to buy a condo and live there. If so, give me a call and I will find you the right condo at the right price.
