It's been almost six months that the King Sentinel published the news that Coppa's Fresh Market was to be the largest tenant in the new King's Ridge Marketplace at King Road and Dufferin Street. Not much news has been heard since then but the sign pictured above was erected this week. The family-owned and operated Coppa's store will be a large 50,000 sq. ft. undertaking, but Coppa's president John Louie Coppa still describes it as a "market-style grocery store". The nearest Coppa's store to King City is on Rutherford Road, south of Maple. The Coppa family has been in the grocery store business for 50 years, so if experience translates to success, then King City and Coppa's will likely be a good mix.
