King Soopers to host Boulder hiring events ahead of Table Mesa store reopening – The Denver Post

As King Soopers works to finalize a reopening date for its Table Mesa store, the grocery store chain is hosting several hiring events to staff the store.

The store, where 10 people were killed in a March 22 mass shooting, is being renovated ahead of a to-be-determined reopening date. Store officials previously have said supply chain issues for needed construction materials are slowing the project’s timeline, but they hope to reopen the store later this year or in early 2022.

However, according to a news release announcing the hiring events, 50% of the store’s employees have committed to returning to work there when it reopens. The other half of the needed employees will be hired starting Sunday and trained at other locations so they will be ready when the Table Mesa location reopens.

Sunday’s hiring event will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at a temporary facility at the site of the Table Mesa store, 3600 Table Mesa Drive.

Other hiring events include:

  • 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 20, #BoulderStrong Resource Center, 2935 Baseline Road,
  • 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 24, #BoulderStrong Resource Center, and
  • 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 24, 30th Street King Soopers, 1650 30th St.

King Soopers also is hosting weekly hiring events at the #BoulderStrong Resource Center from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, 2-7 p.m. Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.

The 10 people killed in the shooting including 51-year-old Boulder Police Officer Eric Talley, who was killed when he was the first person to respond; Denny Stong, 20; Neven Stanisic, 23; Rikki Olds, 25; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Teri Leiker, 51; Suzanne Fountain, 59; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; and Jody Waters, 65.
