FALCON, Colo. (KKTV) - The Falcon community is getting a new option when it comes to grocery shopping!

The Pike Peak Regional Building Department announced a permit was approved for “the much anticipated” King Soopers last month. The $13-million project us underway at the Falcon Market Place, at Meridian Road Woodmen Road.

The Falcon community is continuing to grow as the King Soopers will be an addition to the Walmart and Safeway off E. Woodmen Road.

Jessica Trowbridge with King Soopers Corporate Affairs believes the new store will add about 300 jobs to Falcon and the surrounding area.

“We are thrilled to continue moving forward with this project and the opportunity to serve the Falcon community with a new Market Place format store providing fresh, affordable and delicious food in a one-stop shopping location,” part of a statement sent by Trowbridge reads.

Trowbridge adds the expected opening date will be in the late summer of 2023.
