Harps grocery store to open in February

By Leah Wankum, Editor

After waiting for months in anticipation of any news about the development of a new grocery store, Richmond residents can sleep soundly. Harps is coming.

The food store company announced in a press release Thursday afternoon news of its facility, which is slated to open in February 2018.

Macey Excavating broke ground at the store’s site a few weeks ago. Commerce Construction will manage development of the new grocery store, which will be about 23,000 square feet, said David Ganoung, a spokesman for Harps Food Stores Inc.

Harps will feature a Harps Express, with gas pumps that will offer competitive prices on fuel, according to the press release.

Harps will employ more than 60 associates; Ganoung said 50 of those positions will be available for local hire, while some managers of existing Harps stores may relocate to Richmond.

The complete story is in the Tuesday, August 1, 2017 Richmond News.
