T he new Fred Meyer, the anchor store in the new Maple Valley Town Square, has opened to the public — and so have two other businesses in the new development.
At 2 p.m. today, Fred Meyer held a ceremonial cake cutting and announced more than $20,000 in donations to local nonprofits such as the Maple Valley Food Bank.
Standing next to a tower of cupcakes near the store’s front entrance, Maple Valley Mayor Bill Allison (pictured above) officially welcomed Fred Meyer as a sign of positive economic development. To Allison’s left is Maple Valley Store Director Eric Georgia.
Also opening today were a Pet Pros shop in the Fred Meyer building and Chase Bank in its new location. Chase moved out of the Safeway plaza down the street and into a freestanding building in the Town Square development.
