The Greenwood Market at NW 85th St and 3rd Avenue NW is closing its doors for good at 6 p.m. today. While many shelves are empty, Store Manager Patty Nolan says they still have a good variety of products, just not too much of any one thing, so customers can go on “a treasure hunt” for groceries.
Friday night, store employees held a low-key open house for regular customers, serving cupcakes…
And there was a goodbye book for customers to sign. (Thanks to Rae for the photos!)
Any groceries left at the end of the day will go to the Greenwood Food Bank.
Greenwood Market is closing to make way for an expanded Fred Meyer. The Greenwood Fred Meyer currently has clearance prices as it clears out its inventory before closing on Feb. 25 for remodeling. It will open sometime in the late fall.
Update 12:10 p.m.: At noon today, they started taking down the “Store Closing” signs on the outside.
