A FeedMore executive who formerly managed supermarkets in California and Arizona will operate a grocery store planned for a development in Richmond’s East End backed by businessman and philanthropist Steve Markel.
Norm Gold, chief operating officer at FeedMore, will leave that position to lead the development and management of the proposed 27,000-square-foot grocery store that will co-anchor a mixed-used development at North 25th Street and Nine Mile Road called the Church Hill North Retail Center.
The proposed opening date is late 2018. He will start in that role in January.
J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College is developing a 23,000-square-foot culinary school that will co-anchor the complex. That project is expected to cost about $11.5 million.
