Grocery Store Opens Downtown After Four-Decade Absence

For the first time in 42-years, downtown Tucson has a full-service grocer. Johnny Gibson's Downtown Market, 11 S. Sixth Avenue, has its "soft opening" today. The market features a salad bar, deli, prepared foods, and a meat market which will open July 25. The property also includes a distillery bar and retail space. Once fully developed, the market will create approximately 75 jobs. In addition to being nestled between Sun Link streetcar stops and the Ronstadt Transit Center, the store offers bicycle delivery and pedicab shuttle for nearby residents. The official grand opening is planned for early September.
