KUNA — Ridley’s Family Markets will soon offer shoppers in Kuna another option for buying groceries.
Ridley’s is opening a new store on Deer Flat and Meridian roads in Kuna to serve customers on the north side of town, owner Mark Ridley said. Many customers were driving to Meridian to buy groceries because of price and convenience, he said, but the new store will give them a closer option for groceries, pharmacy and hardware.
The store does not have a projected opening date yet, but it will eventually employ between 75 and 100 people and almost all will be hired locally, with a few managers who will be transferred from other stores.
Ridley’s currently operates 19 grocery stores, five Ace Hardware store and two stand-alone pharmacies.
