Sale complete on downtown Juneau grocery store

Associated PressSeptember 4, 2012 

JUNEAU -- A Washington state retail and real estate management company has completed the purchase of Juneau's main downtown grocery store.

Myers Group CEO Tyler Myers tells the Juneau Empire that the Alaskan & Proud grocery at Foodland Plaza will be renamed Foodland IGA.

Myers said he has plans for renovations of the 47,000-square foot space. He also says some departments will expand.

The Myers Group is based in Clinton, Wash. The company operates five other grocery stores, three service stations, three TrueValue Hardware stores and two other retail businesses.

Ketchikan-based Williams Inc. operated the A&P since 1995. The company announced in April that it would close the store and said the decision was necessary because of failed negotiations with the property's landlord.
