Smith’s Marketplace construction begins

r

Construction is officially underway of a new 123,000-square-foot Smith’s Marketplace store in Springville, with completion anticipated in late fall of 2016.

r

Executives from Smith’s Food & Drug and representatives of Springville City met together in a groundbreaking ceremony Jan. 25 for the store, which will anchor the first phase of a 25-acre development named Springville Marketplace. The store will be located on the south side of Springville’s 400 South at 950 West.

r

“We’re excited to have this new Smith’s Marketplace here in town,” said Springville Mayor Wilford W. Clyde at the ceremony. He and his wife recently visited a new Smith’s Marketplace store in West Jordan and were impressed with it, he said, adding that the Springville store will be similar. “We hope to see a lot more businesses locate around it in the area,” Clyde said.

r

The new Smith’s Marketplace will offer grocery, apparel and household items as well as a pharmacy. Inside the store will be Fred Meyer Jewelers and Starbucks. A Smith’s fuel station will be constructed next to the store.

r

The Springville Marketplace land was previously owned by Suburban Land Reserve and Property Reserve Inc.; both are wholly owned subsidiaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Smith’s Food & Drug is working with Springville City to attract other businesses to the commercial development. In addition to the Smith’s Marketplace store, the development will have room for two junior retail anchors and seven commercial pads.

r

“This is going to be a fabulous store,” said Jay Cummins, president of Smith’s Food & Drug. It is the seventh Smith’s store and the second Smith’s Marketplace to open in Utah County. The county’s first Smith’s Marketplace was built in Lehi in 2008. The Springville store will create more than 200 new jobs.

r

Cummins said Smith’s saw the Springville location as an opportunity to expand into a growing area where the company didn’t yet have a presence.

r

“This is awesome. It’s a long time needed,” said Jason Packard, president of the Springville Chamber of Commerce. “It supports the businesses we have here” by attracting more shoppers to the city, he said. The new store will also attract other businesses to the area and help keep residents’ shopping dollars local, Packard said.
