SALT LAKE CITY — Harmons Grocery Stores Monday released an update on progress of construction and overhaul of three stores at Station Park, City Creek and Emigration Market.

In 2010, Harmons broke ground on two new stores and announced the purchase and renovation of a third site. The City Creek store, 135 E. 100 South in downtown Salt Lake City, will measure approximately 70,000 square feet on each level and is scheduled to open in spring 2012.

The Station Park store, measuring 69,381 square feet, will be located at the intersection of I-15, Highway 89, Legacy Parkway and the FrontRunner commuter rail in Farmington. The store is well under construction and is on schedule for a planned May opening.

Harmons’ Emigration Market will begin construction upon receipt of a permit from Salt Lake City. The 10,000 square-foot historic site at 1706 E. 1300 South is also scheduled for a spring opening.

Company officials said in a statement that each store would likely begin hiring employees one to two months prior to the opening of each location.

Headquartered in West Valley City, Harmons employs 150-200 associates in each of its 13 stores.
