Miner’s Inc. is breaking ground today on a project that has been years in the making.
Ground is being broken for a new Super One Foods Store in Superior’s East End.
The store is being constructed adjacent to and facing East Second Street between 22nd and 23rd avenues east. The company purchased 28 homes and a business to make room for the new 59,000-square-foot grocery store with 20,500 square feet of retail rental space.
The $10 million project is slated to be complete next year. About 100 full- and part-time employees will operate the store.
As part of the project, the city will install traffic signals at 22nd Avenue East and East Second Street to accommodate traffic flow to the new store, which is expected to draw 12,000 vehicles a week.
The groundbreaking is at 3 p.m. at the site of the new store.
