Tony’s Market is opening a Downtown location! Tony’s has confirmed that they will open their fourth location on the first floor of 950 Broadway in the Golden Triangle in early in 2009. At 15,000 square feet this will also be the largest Tony’s in the metro area. Also unique to this new store will be a 4,500 square foot bistro with indoor and outdoor seating that can accommodate 80 people and will serve beer and wine. Tony Rosacci, founder and president of Tony’s Market is thrilled:
“We’re thrilled to have found such an ideal location! I’ve been looking forward to opening a Denver location for years. We just needed to find the right space and this building is a terrific site.”
Tony’s Market, originally Tony’s Meats, was founded in 1978 and is a specialty foods retailer offering local produce, a large deli that prepares food daily, a European style bakery and a huge selection of meats and seafood most of which is prepared in house including freshly ground beef, homemade sausages, BBQ brisket and seafood flown in daily.
This could be just the shot in the arm the Golden Triangle needs to attract additional residents as this entire neighborhood has no grocery or fresh food retailer that people can conveniently walk to. Even better Tony’s will activate the ground floor of this building and it doesn’t hurt that they will have 90 parking spaces either. I hope this continues the trend of successful, popular, and local independent grocers that now call Downtown home like Marczyk Fine Foods on 17th in Uptown and Cook’s Fresh Market on the Mall in the CBD. Tony’s new location is another indication that Downtown Denver is evolving more and more into a 24/7 place to live.
