Garden City Getting New Grocery Store, Bank
With a surge in tourism spawned by the coronavirus pandemic, Garden City is about to get its first “full-service” grocery store, which will also house the community’s only bank.
Long the sole grocery store in town, the tiny Mike’s Market has combined with nearby Ace Hardware — both owned by the Moldenhauer family — for a new building at 557 N. Bear Lake Blvd.
The 40,000 square-foot, two-story structure will also include a Zions Bank branch, a Beans & Brew coffee shop, and a Chevron gas station with six bays that accommodate oversized vehicles, boats and trailers. The second floor will feature a 100-seat mezzanine overlooking the lake, and the hardware store will have a greenhouse annex for garden supplies plus a sporting goods section with gear for water skiing, boating, fishing and hunting.
