UPDATE: The Stapleton King Soopers opened Wednesday, June 21.

King Soopers is starting to hire employees ahead of opening its new store in northeast Denver.

The new store is expected to open late next month near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Havana Street, the company wrote on Facebook.

“We are now accepting applications for all positions including cashier, bagger, grocery clerk, produce clerk, meat clerk, deli clerk and bakery clerk,” King Soopers’ job site states.

King Soopers is opening the store at 2953 Havana St., just outside of food deserts in Aurora and about a mile and half from Denver’s Montbello neighborhood where city officials hope construction on a grocery store will start sometime this year as part of the city’s Healthy Food Challenge.

The grocer did not return multiple inquiries about its newest Denver store. Its parent company, The Kroger Co., purchased the 3.6-acre site where the store is planned for $1.2 million in 2015. Plans for the 183,216-square-foot store and a nearby gas station were approved in March 2016.
