The wait is almost over for grocery-starved shoppers in parts of North Phoenix. The new Fry’s Marketplace on Dove Valley Road will open March 31, company officials announced today.

A grand opening will be held at 7 a.m. at the new store in the Canyon Crossroads shopping plaza, which will also house AutoZone, Burger King, Pinky’s Nails and a Pet Planet (details).

The new Fry’s will be about the size of two football fields, much larger than the one in Anthem. Inside, shoppers will find a wine bar and a Starbucks, as well as apparel. The property features a 30-foot-high, covered parking structure with solar panels that will help power the store (details).

“Our store will be open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week,” said store manager Lucy Wienshienk. “We invite you to celebrate our grand opening with us and see your beautiful new neighborhood store―there’s a lot to love.”

A fuel center in the plaza, which will be open 24 hours a day, will also open March 31, Fry’s spokesperson Katie Arrington told In&Out.

Fry’s had planned to hire 400 employees at the new location, including more than 200 part-timers, and they’re not quite done.

“We currently have 25 open positions at this store,” Arrington said today.
