BOULDER, Colo. (KDVR) — It’s been nearly a year since 10 people were tragically killed at the King Soopers on Table Mesa Drive, but we now know that the store will soon reopen.

The store has been closed since March 22, 2021, when a gunman shot and killed several people in the store and its parking lot.

A company spokesperson says the store will reopen on Wednesday, Feb. 9. A ceremony will be held that morning to “remember the lives that will never be forgotten and embrace the strength and resilience of the community.”

The store was initially slated to reopen in January, but a worker strike pushed that date back.

“We look forward to coming together with our associates and the community to unite on this next
chapter,” said Joe Kelley, president of King Soopers. “We know that restoring this location is a very
important step in our healing journey and that it signifies a tremendous milestone for all of us.”

The alleged shooter has been ruled incompetent to stand trial, but evaluations and treatment are ongoing and the DA said they believe a trial will be able to commence in the future.
