Sedro-Woolley, WA – It’s Official, Sedro-Woolley is getting a new grocery store where the old Thrifty Foods Market Place Grocery Store was previously located and construction has already started on the new business.
Online records show that In November of 2018, Pacific Northwest Properties I LLC, sold the former Thrifty Foods Market Place Grocery Store building located at 100 State Street, to Paul and Leann Woodmansee for $800,000.
SkagitBreaking.com submitted a public records request to the City of Sedro-Woolley for permit information related to the noticeable building improvements being made by construction crews. The City released the permit information and confirmed that initial permits were issued for improvements to the façade, roofing and updating the furnace, estimated to cost around $85,000.00. Permits show the work is being completed by contractors BYK Construction Inc., of Sedro-Woolley. They have completed several recent major commercial projects in Skagit County.
We visited the BYK Construction Offices located in the new 7600 Square foot Martindale Crossing Complex located at 133 West State Street and talked to them about the improvements being made to the old Thrifty Foods Market Place building. While the employees weren’t at liberty to announce the exact name of the grocery store being opened up, they did confirm to Skagit Breaking that a new grocery store would be opening once construction upgrades were completed on the 19,740 Square foot building, originally built in 1963.
BYK Employees said after Skagit Breaking posted photos of the new construction on the Martindale Crossing Complex and “The Downtown 48”, the 42,000 square foot, 48 Unit Residential Apartment Building that was built on Rita Street across from E & E Lumber, employees noticed many comments on the photos from residents wanting a new grocery store in town. They said the owners began to look at buying and remodeling the old Thrifty Foods Market Place building, but the purchase of the building took quite some time to complete.
They are excited to see the finished product and get a new grocery store in town for local residents and tourists to shop at. BYK also built the 8600 Square Foot Northwest Physical Therapy Building in Burlington on the Corner of Fairhaven Street and Burlington Boulevard.
The Official Press release announcement on exactly which grocery store will be opening up at 100 State Street once construction is completed, will be announced shortly on the BYK Construction Facebook Page.
