Paul's Note - March 22, 2019

I’ve been getting questions about the status of the planned Fry’s on 22nd and Houghton. There has been some confusion since Fry’s has closed a few stores in town and cancelled plans to build others. I had my staff contact Kroeger’s, Fry’s parent company, to find out what the status of the 22nd and Houghton location is. We got a response from Dennis E. Barr, the company’s director of real estate:
