There is No Place Like Home
King Soopers and the City of Arvada invite the public to join us in celebrating the official Grand Opening of the King Soopers Marketplace at Candelas on Wednesday, May 9th at 9:00 am. (Soft opening at 6am).
“We can’t think of a better location to open our 153rd store than in Arvada where it all started for us in 1947 with our first King Soopers,” said Dennis Gibson, President of King Soopers. “As a Colorado company we are very excited about serving this community as a solution for much of what their family needs,” Gibson said.
We will be presenting the Food Bank of the Rockies with $150,000 check. Food Bank of the Rockies helps nearly half a million people each year. They serve 30 counties in Colorado and the entire state of Wyoming. More than 134,000 meals each day help our neighbors facing hunger from the food bank.
