The first phase of the project is a remodel of the pharmacy. In addition to new walls and carpets, the remodel will add a council room that will provide privacy for customers who wish to discuss medications and shots. The pharmacy remodel should be completed by the end of the month.
As of Monday, Sept. 24, City Market’s restrooms will be closed for construction. The restrooms will likely be unavailable for two weeks, but in the interim, City Market will provide “temporary walk-in restrooms near the entrance,” said the store’s manager Brendon Cameron. Though the schedule is still tentative, the plan is to remodel the floral department following the restrooms.
Cameron said that in his two years as manager he has heard lots of requests from locals to improve the store. He noted that Moab is fortunate to get the upgrade, since Kroger’s corporate offices have cut back remodeling budgets in favor of investing in new technology.
City Market will experience another large change in January when the city’s plastic bag ban goes into effect. Cameron said Kroger asked him not to comment about the ban because store officials are still trying to figure out how things will work once plastic grocery bags are eliminated.
