The location is the latest prototype for Fry’s and will feature a fueling station, apparel, wine tasting bar, Starbucks®, drive-thru pharmacy, sushi, an in-store chef, plus many other features.

“Buckeye continues to attract more amenities for our residents,” said Mayor Jack Meck. “We are pleased to welcome the second Fry’s Marketplace to our community that will be providing additional retail shopping opportunities within a short distance from their home.”

“Fry’s and the other retailers and services that will be joining Village Grove shopping center are another example of making sure our residents can live, work, shop and play in the city of Buckeye,” Meck added.
