Smith’s has opened its twelfth Smith’s Marketplace store at 689 North Redwood Road in Saratoga Springs, Utah.
This is the second Marketplace store to open in Utah County, with another new store nearly ready to open in Springville, representing a total capital investment of $52 million for the two new locations and the addition of 400 net new jobs.
The Crossing Shopping Center anchor store replaces the nearby Smith’s Food & Drug Store at 1320 N. Redwood Road, which opened in 2003 and closed on June 6. Store managers and the 125 associates were relocated to the new store and an additional 150 individuals were hired to meet the service needs of the larger Marketplace store.
The new 123,500 square-foot multi-department store offers complete grocery items, along with apparel, housewares décor and small kitchen appliances; a wide assortment of natural, organic and specialty bulk foods; pet products; and a vast selection of fresh floral choices.
Smith’s dine-in food fare serves Starbucks coffee, gourmet sandwiches, Pan Asian foods, fresh sushi, made-to-order oven fire-baked pizza, and a salad bar to be enjoyed in the large deli seating area. In addition, the store features an on-site Smith’s Fuel Center, two-lane drive through pharmacy, Fred Meyer Jewelers and US Bank branch.
A specially commissioned art mural of Saratoga Springs, painted by local Utah artist Chuck Landvatter, hangs in the store’s window-spanned dining area and portrays the origins of the city with its lakes, mountains and farmland, along with a depiction of the old Saratoga Mineral Baths.
Saratoga customers will now have the opportunity to order from more than 40,000 items online or with their mobile device and pick up the order on the same day using ClickList. Special order pick up parking is located in a specially marked area on the southeast side of the store. This is Smith’s 19th ClickList location.
Today Smith’s operates 140 stores in seven western states including 53 stores in Utah. Smith’s charitable giving, in partnership with 18,000 associates, generous customers and suppliers, totaled $5.7 million in cash and food products to Utah organizations in 2016.
