Construction on a new, mid-size supermarket in Est. Frydenhoj is set to begin in a few months.
The St. Croix-based Daas Corp. has purchased the plot of land across from Independent Boat Yard for an undisclosed amount of money from Al Cohen, who was building a warehouse on the site. Daas' crew began demolishing the half-built structure Monday.
"This is really going to be a state-of-the-art supermarket," Daas Corp. President Ahed Daas said Monday.
The store, scheduled to open in about a year, will be approximately 20,000 square feet with 10,000 square feet of retail space.
Crews will continue clearing the site over the next few months before construction of the store and parking lot commences.
Daas said he expects the new supermarket will be more convenient for residents of the east end, nearby marinas and St. John.
