Harmons to break ground in Davis County

Harmons is scheduled to break ground for a supermarket at the once-stalled Station Park shopping center in Farmington. The Utah-based grocery chain is the first retailer to start construction at the 67-acre site at the intersection of Interstate 15, Highway 89, Legacy Parkway and a Frontrunner commuter rail station.

The Station Park store, slated to be completed in May 2011, will feature fresh foods and a delicatessen with chef-prepared entrees. That makes it easy for commuters to pick up finished meals to take home to hungry families, said Bob Harmon, co-owner of Harmons grocery chain. The chain also recently broke ground on its City Creek store in downtown Salt Lake City, with a target completion date of fall 2011. In addition, Harmons is remodeling the venerable Emigration Market in Salt Lake City. The store at 1706 E. 1300 South is expected to reopen by early 2011.

In addition, in two weeks, construction will begin on a 14-screen state-of-the-art Cinemark XD movie theater. The theater and a number of other buildings, whose tenants have not yet been announced, should be open in May, said Craig Trottier, a vice president at CenterCal Properties. Plans call for more than a dozen restaurants and a broad selection of apparel, home goods and entertainment. The Salt Lake Tribune
