Kansas City Downtown Adds Grocery Store

By  | 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Long on residents' wish lists, a grocery
store is opening in Kansas City's downtown.

Cosentino's Market Downtown is slated to open Tuesday in the
Kansas City Power & Light District.

The new 33,000-square-foot store will have meat, seafood, produce, bakery, liquor and floral departments. It also will have a prepared foods area that includes sushi and hot pasta bars.

Downtown Council spokesman Michael Hurd called it a ``first class, very urban-oriented grocery store'' and says it's a big moment for the city's downtown.

The Cosentinos own 24 stores throughout the metro area. The family spent more than three years planning the new downtown location.

The store joins a mix of bars and restaurants and the Sprint Center in the new entertainment district.
