BELLINGHAM - The projects to put a Safeway grocery store and a new gas station into Sunset Square are in full swing.
Safeway is spending about $13 million to remodel the former Cost Cutter space for a 67,000-square-foot store and building a six-island fueling station.
Safeway spokeswoman Sara Osborne said they are aiming for a mid-December opening of the store and the gas station.
The station will be at the edge of the property where an auto repair shop previously sat. That building recently was demolished to make way for the gas pumps.
This will be the second Safeway in Whatcom County. The Lynden store opened in 2002. Safeway previously had stores in Bellingham but closed the last one in 1993.
