Central Market Considering a Move to Gig Harbor

PH Rodgers | Sep 30, 201512:01 PM    

After hearing that Haggen would close the Gig Harbor store that it purchased from Safeway, I contacted the folks at Central Market to see if they might be looking at the location. They are not, but I did learn that they are considering opening one of their smaller stores (a/k/a Town & Country Market) in the developing area north of Gig Harbor (presumably near Borgen Boulevard, which at the moment, has only one traditional grocery store, a less than thrilling Albertson's). So if anyone is interested, sent them a note begging for them to close the deal.

The arrival of even the downsized version of Central Market would be welcome in Gig Harbor, as the area is food starved in terms of grocery stores (save Harbor Greens, which is fine for what it is, but limited in scope), farmers markets and especially restaurants. I keep thinking that this food and gastronomy deficit might change as the demographics of the Gig Harbor area continue to improve. Who knows, we even might began to attract a few decent restaurants.
