Local grocery chain PCC Natural Markets announced today that they’re setting their sights on Burien.
The natural foods store’s new location will open in 2018 in the Five Corners Shopping Center where the old Albertson’s, later a Haggen, used to be. The center is also home to the Burien Trader Joe’s, making for some interesting competition.
The Burien location will open a year before its Madison Valley store is scheduled to open—but Madison Valley is a taller project. Current plans for the development, which will replace City People’s on Madison across from the Arboretum, include 82 residential units above 26,250 square feet of retail space.
The Burien store will only have slightly less space—20,000 feet—and no apartments above.
Both stores, plus a remodel of their West Seattle location, will be designed by Seattle-based Graham Baba Architects.
PCC operates 11 stores in the greater Seattle area. Burien would be the farthest-south on the west side when it opens, after the Columbia City location, which opened in 2015.
