WinCo has completed the permitting process and will break ground on its new Surprise store later this month.

Company spokesman Michael Read said this week that site work has begun on the 85,000-square-foot building on the southwest corner of Bell Road and Loop 303. Read said there is no firm groundbreaking date, but construction should start in the next two to three weeks.

“We’re excited about it, and we’re moving,” Read said.

Read said the store should open between January and March 2015. Legal challenges, however, remain for the grocery chain and the city.

Paul Gilbert of Phoenix-based Beus Gilbert PLLC is representing LDR, property owner for the shopping center anchored by Safeway just west of the Winco.

On Jan. 22, the Surprise Board of Adjustment upheld an October Planning and Zoning approval of the WinCo site plan. Lawyers representing Surprise Coalition of Concerned Citizens and Safeway had appealed the decision.

Three topics — the Surprise board of adjustment ruling, the Winco site plan and the project’s joint access easement — are the subject of Beus Gilbert lawsuits.

Last month, GIlbert said his firm will continue to pursue the suits on behalf of its clients, even as Winco begins to build.

Assuming it clears the final legal hurdles, the Surprise location will be WinCo’s fifth Arizona store and the second in the West Valley, joining the store at 5850 W. Bell Road, Glendale.

    Safeway has a long history of legal bullying in an attempt to keep out competitors.
