Searching for ancient artifacts – the Prelude to Fry’s downtown

2017 January 8

Sometime in late 2018, Downtown Phoenix may see it’s first real Grocery store, a 55,000 sq ft Fry’s store.  Before construction can begin however, archeologists have been commissioned to deal with pre-historic Hohokam pit houses located at the site.  There is also apparently a bomb shelter at the location which was constructed under a JC Penney store that once stood at the site.  The archeological work has apparently just gotten underway as evidenced by the photo below.

Once the Fry’s store arrives, residents of the Central Park neighborhood will have just a very short walk to a beautiful urban, full service Grocery Store.
