The 57,655-square-foot store, which will anchor the Oaks Meadows Marketplace, will break ground in January, according to a news release from the company.
The store will feature a Starbucks; pharmacy drive-thru; a deli with seating area, hamburgers, freshly prepared sushi, made-to-order pizzas and to-go orders; a floral department; and a wine and beer selection. The new Randalls will also have a gas station and convenience store.
“Randalls is excited to build a store in Georgetown and become part of this vibrant and thriving community,” Hooper said in a statement. “We are eager to meet the needs of our customers and create new jobs in Georgetown.”
According to the news release, the company expects to hire about 165 full-time and part-time employees.
Georgetown City Council annexed the 11.17-acre site for the Oaks Meadows Marketplace in May, and the property was rezoned to be a local commercial district in June.
Residents in nearby neighborhoods, including Foutainwood and The Woods at Fountainwood, protested the proposed development at the time citing concerns about traffic on Jim Hogg, which is the only road leading into and out of their neighborhoods.
