The new Fry’s is located in the bottom floor of CityScape’s Block 23 — a mixed-use residential, retail, and office complex still under construction. The first restaurant tenant, Blanco Tacos & Tequila, was announced in January.
“This is a defining moment for the downtown community. Our new store will alleviate a decades-long food desert and provide delicious, high-quality, and nutritious grocery options to those who work, live, and visit downtown,” Monica Garnes, president of Fry’s Food Stores, said in a press release. “It will also introduce a new, full-service grocery store to the area, which enhances the thriving downtown environment.”
Fry’s Food Stores has been around since 1960, and is headquartered in Tolleson. Additional details about the grand opening of the downtown Phoenix location are coming soon. For more information, visit the Fry’s Food Stores website.
