I am SO excited, can’t wait to go spend my money! I’m looking forward to not having to dash to the North Market before they close or drive serious distances to get quality local meat & produce.April 29, 2012 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm #466385
Rode by today and it doesn’t look like they’re close to opening anytime soon. I know they were originally hoping for an April open. Looks like they still have quite a way to go. Wonder if they’re running into permit issues?April 29, 2012 9:54 pm at 9:54 pm #466386
Just read the recent Other Paper article and it looks like they’re estimating late summer now.April 30, 2012 12:32 am at 12:32 am #466387
The Other Paper article is pretty good.
He also knows the shopping habits of his new urban clientele likely will be a bit different than the customers Hills has served for years at its original suburban location on the northwest side.
From the roughly 800 people who have responded to the survey since it launched March 14, Moorhead said she’s learned that Downtown dwellers are more likely to shop between 7 and 10 p.m., make daily trips to the market instead of buying in bulk, purchase organic products and own a dog that prefers dry food.May 25, 2012 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #466388

Awesome! Can’t wait!May 26, 2012 12:27 pm at 12:27 pm #466391
Nice! Really excited to see visible progress! :DMay 28, 2012 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #466392
Excited by this and the new GE everyone is talking about. To get to Grant I would still have to drive, are they catering more to the local walking crowd of Neighborhood Launch and downtown condos and offices or will they have additional parking? Is 11,600 feet about the size of the Neil Ave GE?May 28, 2012 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #466393
There will be parking on site. I imagine they’re catering to anyone and everyone who wants to come spend money. ;)June 1, 2012 2:10 am at 2:10 am #466394
