Ridley's Market coming to Eagle Mountain

Less than a year after losing a long-sought grocery store, a major new company has stepped forward to give Eagle Mountain residents a place to buy food at home.

The owner of Ridley's grocery stores met with Eagle Mountain council members recently to confirm the company's plans to build a 55,000-square-foot store in the city.

The store will bring between 75 and 100 part-time and full-time jobs to Eagle Mountain. And the good news doesn't stop at groceries. The store will include an attached Ace Hardware, a made-from-scratch bakery and a deli. And although banking services will not be in the store, there are two retail pads on the property and "I imagine it is highly likely that one will become a bank" or credit union, Jackson said.

The store will open in the fall of 2013. Daily Herald
