Partners Break Ground at The Merc Co+op Project

With a groundbreaking today for a new grocery store downtown, the end of the food desert in eastern Kansas City, Kansas, is in sight.

The Merc Co-Op, to be on the east side of a parking lot at 5th and Minnesota, is the answer to many years of work to open a downtown grocery store. About 250 people attended a groundbreaking on Thursday for the new grocery store.

The 14,000-square-foot grocery store is scheduled to open in mid-2020. It will be a full-service store with a salad bar, a deli, produce, packaged meat, seafood and grocery staples, according to officials. It also will have an educational space. The co-op has been asking residents to tell them what they would like to see in the store.

Working on the $7 million project are the CBC Real Estate Group, Sunflower Development Group, Henderson Engineers, BHC Rhodes, Bob D. Campbell and Co. Engineers, McCown Gordon Construction and International Architects.
