Springville – Smith’s opened its newest Smith’s Marketplace store at 400 S. 1750 West in Springville. This is the third marketplace store to open in Utah County and will add 256 new jobs to the area.
Dal Haderlie, a 33-year veteran of Smith’s who previously managed the Orem store for over 20 years, will serve as store director.
The 123,500-square-foot multi-department store features the area’s first Starbucks; a wide assortment of natural, organic and specialty bulk food and locally grown produce; a two-lane drive-through pharmacy; and a variety of household and clothing items that will make this store a destination for the entire community of Springville.
As part of the grand opening, Smith’s celebrated its 100th Smith’s Fuel Center with a donation of 100 gallons of gas to Tabitha’s Way Local Food Pantry. Through Smith’s Grocery Rescue Program, nutritious food such as vegetables, meat, bakery and dairy that are near expiration date and still full of good nutrition are donated to Tabitha’s Way for distribution to needy families in Utah County.
Well-known Provo artists David and Jeanne Gomm of Gomm Stained Glass designed a specially commissioned mosaic of Springville City, which hangs in the store’s dining area. The beautiful six-panel stained glass mural illustrates a community of vibrant businesses and family homes. This is the fifth piece of Utah art commissioned by Smith’s in the past year for new store openings.
Beginning June 29, Smith’s Springville customers will have the option of grocery home delivery from the Springville store via PigeonShip, a Utah-based delivery service provider. Utilizing Smith’s online grocery ordering service, ClickList, which offers more than 40,000 items from desktop or mobile devices, customers may now also choose home delivery by PigeonShip as an alternative to curbside store pick up.
As part of the company’s ongoing effort to reduce energy use, Smith’s implemented the latest technologies in heating, cooling, water and lighting. Freezers and coolers are lit with more efficient LED lights. Smith’s diverts waste from landfills by reducing packaging, recycling plastic bags, or donating safe, perishable foods to food banks. During construction Smith’s required the builder to recycle 90 percent of the project’s total non-hazardous waste such as scrap wood, metal, cardboard, concrete brick and plastic.
