Fareway finalizes plans for new store in Granger

Special to the Chief
A design rendering shows the plan for the Fareway store in Ogden. Digging was set begin on that project in April. Fareway recently announced plans to build in Granger, with construction set to begin in 2024.

Fareway Stores, Inc. plans to construct an approximately 19,000 square foot store on the SE corner of State Street and Oak Street in Granger. Construction is planned to begin in 2024, with a tentative opening in the summer of 2025. Between now and then, public infrastructure work will be completed along State Street and Highway 17.

“Upon opening, as people enter Granger, they will be greeted by their neighborhood Fareway,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We are excited to join the Granger community. We want to thank city officials and the property owner for their hard work in making this project possible.”

“Fareway is a great company and a great fit for Granger—we are very excited they are coming to our fast-growing community,” said City of Granger Mayor Tony James. “We look forward to partnering with them for years to come.”
