New grocery store planned in Basehor
Ed McIntosh and John Bell of Benchmark Management announced Monday that they have teamed up with Affiliated Foods Midwest to build a grocery store in Basehor.
The 50,000-square-foot store, called Wolf Creek Marketplace, will be built in Wolf Creek Junction development, also owned by Benchmark Management. The area is at the northeast corner of U.S. Highway 24-40 and 155th Street.
Construction is set to begin on the $7 million project at the end of February, and the developers hope to open the store in late summer or early fall 2007. The supermarket will feature a pharmacy, deli with cafeteria area, bakery, a full line of fresh produce, ethnic section, floral and complete line of organic and natural foods.
McIntosh said he anticipates the store will employ between 75 and 100 people.
