Smith’s Marketplace is gearing up for its grand opening on July 16. Construction is in full swing, freezers and registers arrived Tuesday and the push to hire 140 new employees is on.
“We’re just in the process of thinking through what would be fun and meaningful store opening activities” said Marsha Gilford, vice president of public affairs for Smith’s Food & Drug Stores. “We want it to be a great experience and involve a good portion of the community, because this has been a process and a result that the whole community has been looking forward to.”
The new 110,000-foot venue requires more than double the current workforce of 130, and the nature of the marketplace creates openings for a wider range of expertise.
In addition to cashiers and grocery clerks, Smith’s/Kroger’s is looking for people with retail experience in apparel and home goods, chefs for their expanded prepared foods department and experts in liquors and wines.
“Mostly we’re looking for people who are friendly and helpful,” Gilford said. “The qualification is they need to enjoy working with people, enjoy serving customers.”
