Homeland to start construction on new northeast OKC store
It’s not every day we can point to a new development and say that it will have a significant and daily impact on the quality of life for thousands of people in our community. Today is one of those days, when we announce the solution to a challenge that I and others have worked on for more than 20 years.
I invite you to join Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt, Ward 7 Councilwoman Nikki Nice, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber and me on Oct. 1 at noon for the groundbreaking of the new Homeland grocery store on the northeast corner of NE 36th Street and N. Lincoln Boulevard.
I have written often about access to fresh, high-quality groceries and its impact on our health. Our neighbors in northeast Oklahoma City have been without a full-service grocery store for far too long and Homeland has responded to that need, with a construction schedule that will have the store opening in the summer of 2021.
The approximately 30,000-square-foot store will offer organic fruits and vegetables, freshly baked breads, a custom butcher shop, ready-to-eat deli foods prepared daily and a drive-thru pharmacy. The store will serve wine and beer by the glass and will have indoor and outdoor seating areas near the grab-and-go prepared foods. The outdoor seating will be near service outlets for food trucks, creating a unique space that can host community gatherings and events.
