Just a reminder that the remodeled Greenwood Fred Meyer will reopen at 7 a.m. Friday, at 100 NW 85th St.
The parking lot was full of construction vehicles and workers making last-minute preparations this morning.
The old Greenwood Market sign on the corner of NW 85th Street and 3rd Avenue NW was finally taken down last week and has been replaced with a Fred Meyer sign.
Fred Meyer employees will serve cake at 2 p.m. Friday, and they’ll be donating $25,000 to local charities, including $5,000 to the Greenwood Senior Center and $5,000 to the Greenwood Food Bank. The store also will have a food drive for the food bank for the month of February, and will use its coin collection boxes at registers to collect donations for the food bank until May 25.
Fred Meyer also plans to donate perishable food items to the Greenwood Food Bank five days a week through the Grocery Rescue Program.
Update: Fred Meyer Public Affairs Spokeswoman Melinda Merrill just told me that neighbors are invited for a sneak peek inside the store from 4-8 p.m. Thursday. Customers can use the grand opening ad that will be in the newspaper; there will also be lots of food samples.
