At Last – a Grocery Store!

Produce Department at Rosauers Bozeman

The City and Port of Ridgefield together announced today that a new retail development center that includes a grocery store will move forward on a portion of the port’s Discovery Ridge property at the southeast corner of the roundabout at 45th and Pioneer streets.

At its regularly-scheduled meeting on February 28, the Port of Ridgefield commission voted unanimously to approve a Purchase and Sale Agreement between the port and holding company Discovery Ridge LLC, for around nine acres of the 30-acre site, paving the way for the development of a 53,000 square foot, full-service, regional grocery store with a fueling station. Discovery Ridge LLC will contract the project to FDM Development, owned by Ridgefield-based developer Dean Maldonado.

Prior to the port’s approval of the property sale, the port completed required environmental and other due diligence to satisfaction.

The grocer, Rosauers Supermarkets, (pronounced “Rose are zz) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of URM Stores, headquartered in Spokane, Wash. There are 21 Rosauers stores in the region. The Ridgefield location will be the company’s first store in western Washington. Rosauers had previously signed a lease agreement with Maldonado, contingent on the holding company’s purchase of the property from the port.
