The new owners of the Foodland IGA will be celebrating completion of their remodeling and expansion Wednesday morning.
A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for 10 a.m.
“It’s just kind of a chance to mark the occasion because a lot of work went into it, and say thank you to some people,” says Tyler Myers, president of the Washington-based Myers Group LLC.
The former Alaskan & Proud, located in the Foodland Shopping Center, briefly closed in September 2012 and reopened under new ownership two days later. Myers Group signed a 10-year lease for the space with the Rosenberger family of Juneau, owners of the shopping center.
The grocery store has been remodeled and expanded with new flooring, lighting, refrigerator and freezer cases. The deli and salad bar, meat and produce sections have all been expanded. Former True Value hardware store owner Craig Good has relocated to the front of the building as manager of the new Ace Hardware. True North Federal Credit Union and Heritage Coffee have also set up shop inside the store.
Myers says interior and exterior signage is still on their to-do list.
