Long-time customers are lamenting the impending closure of downtown’s Alaskan & Proud Market, while current employees remain uncertain about what lies in store for the space the grocery now occupies.
“A lot of people are sad about it shutting down,” Alaskan and Proud store manager Sandi McDonald said.
Many of her customers live downtown, she said.
“They don’t want to have to catch the bus, they walk here,” McDonald said.
Visiting Lemon Creek and Mendenhall Valley stores is difficult for some, she said.
