    Employees LeeAnn Thomas of Stanwood (left) and Annmarie Gibson of Marysville stock shelves with Easter toys in the home department of the new Fred Meyer store at Snohomish Station. The store opens Wednesday.

SNOHOMISH -- Snohomish Station, the brand-new large shopping center along Bickford Avenue, is coming to life, with two huge stores planning to open in the next two months.
A new Fred Meyer anchor store opens Wednesday, the 129th store for the Portland, Ore.-based Northwest retailer. The Snohomish store, a $28 million investment for the chain, will employ more than 250 associates.
Among other things, the store includes a gourmet olive bar, a wine steward, a Starbucks and a Peoples Bank branch. Fred Meyer noted the 170,000-square-foot store was designed and built with environmentally friendly features such as skylights, energy efficient lighting and concrete floors. The store's manager is Brad Carter of Snohomish.
The second of the shopping center's three anchors, Kohl's, plans to open its third Snohomish County store in April. Last year, Kohl's opened in Lynnwood and Marysville.
The new store plans to employ almost 150 people, said Kohl's spokesperson Elizabeth DeLuca. She encourages those interested in working at the Snohomish store to apply at
As well as offering name-brand clothing and housewares, the Snohomish store will feature an exterior area with outdoor seating and music. "Our stores are laid out with convenience in mind," DeLuca said.
Snohomish Station, being developed by Bellevue-based Wakefield Properties on a former gravel quarry, is expected to include more than 450,000 square feet of retail space when completed. Economically, it's one of the single-largest projects in the city's history, and it provides several new "big-box" stores for residents east of Everett.
The center's third anchor, Home Depot, is scheduled to open in late summer or fall. Starbucks also is a confirmed tenant. A local real estate company has been actively recruiting other businesses for smaller spaces being constructed at the retail center.
