Construction on the new Homeland store near NE 36th and Lincoln Boulevard will enter the final stages this week.
The new grocery store will add a much-needed option for fresh produce in northeast Oklahoma City.
On Monday, project leaders will sign one of the final beams on the new Homeland before it's put into place.
At nearly 30,000 square feet, Homeland said this new building will have a full-service meat department, a full-service bakery and a drive-thru pharmacy.
"In order to get that beam in place, a lot of people had to work together. This is really an example of what cooperation can do," said CEO Marc Jones.
Until just recently, the entire area of northeast Oklahoma City was considered a food desert. Then the Market at Eastpoint opened in April. The new Homeland will give the area even more options.
The community signing of the beam at the new Homeland will officially begin at 10 a.m. Monday.
