The new Super One Foods store on East Second Street in Superior is set to open at 6 a.m. Sunday.

The store at 2202 E. Second St. — Miner’s Inc.’s first new-from-the-ground-up store in 17 years — replaces two other Super One locations in Superior, at the Belknap Plaza and at 2222 E. Fifth St. Saturday was the last day of business at those locations.

Another Super One Foods location in Superior, at 1515 Oakes Ave., will remain open.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new store is scheduled to be held at noon Monday. The 60,000-square-foot store is part of a $10 million development that also includes rental space for other retail stores.

The new store is much larger than the Belknap and East Fifth Street locations it is replacing.

“The decision to close the other two locations was very difficult,” Bob Halvorson, Miner’s Inc. vice president of operations, told the Superior Telegram in March. But, he said, the new store “is going to be better than the sum of the parts of the other two.”

The new store will be open from 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week.
