After decades of wishes and rumors, Santaquin finally has a grocery store. 

Macey’s held an official grand opening ceremony on Sept. 23. The ceremony started with some remarks by Associated Food Stores representative Darin Peirce, followed by some welcoming words from Santaquin Mayor Kirk Hunsaker. 

The Santaquin Fire Department, Police Department, and local veterans then participated in a flag-raising ceremony, sending the extremely large American flag, a feature Macey’s stores are known for throughout Utah, up the flagpole.

Following the national anthem, store manager DeMar Butterfield led the assembled customers and employees in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Although the store officially opened for business on June 17, this September Grand Opening ceremony signals that the Macey’s grocery store complex, which includes an Arctic Circle fast food restaurant, a Beans and Brew coffee shop, and the adjacent Ace Hardware, plans to serve the people of Santaquin and the surrounding area for years to come.
