"Upscale Local Marketplace Takes Over Vacant Highland Save-a-Lot"

Leevers Locavore will be managed by Chris Franklin, a Trader Joe's veteran who recently moved to Colorado. The entire 18,000-square-foot building is currently being renovated, a job that includes restoring original hardwood floors and exposing ceiling beams stenciled with the Denver Steel name, both of which were part of the space long before it was a Save-a-Lot.

Tailored for an influx of young residents in the surrounding Highland, Sunnyside and Berkeley neighborhoods, Leevers Locavore will offer a coffee station, beer and wine on tap for shoppers, a butcher counter, several food kiosks and a mix of groceries and produce from Colorado as well as national brands. The market should open by spring or summer.
