Any time you hear about a new grocery store opening up, we have to know when and where?

We've heard a lot of talk about it and soon it will become a reality. According to WILX, Capital City Market, the new neighborhood grocery store by Meijer and one of the first grocery stores in downtown Lansing, is set to open Oct. 14.

The new grocery store will be located within the BLOCK600 development at Michigan Avenue and Larch Street.

You know what makes this great? People who work in downtown Lansing will now have more of a convenient shot at picking up extra groceries during their lunch hour or when they leave work.

The Capital City Market is focused on bringing a mix of fresh convenient food and value to customers in the region, and marks the retailer's first small format store in mid-Michigan.

Store manager Mitch Cook said "I have a great team in place and am confident Capital City Market will provide a unique experience to customers in Lansing's downtown. We are excited to open our doors, be a good neighbor, and work every day to have the best products on our shelves." (WILX)

Capital City Market will be a 37,000 square foot store that will feature prepared foods, including bakery items, fresh meat, and deli offerings.

"It will also include Meijer and national brand products, and an estimated 3,000 local, artisan items, including Woody's Oasis, Mr. Leslie's Cheesecake, and Round Lake Produce." (WILX)

It's already written down on my calendar for Oct. 14 as opening day for Capital City Market in downtown Lansing.
