Hill Residents Review New Kuhn's Proposal

Hill District residents have reviewed a new proposal for a Kuhn's supermarket. Carl Redwood with the One Hill Coalition says about 70 people gathered over the weekend to get a look at changes Kuhn's made to its original proposal.

Kuhn's now plans a stand-alone store; previously, it proposed the store as an anchor for other retail shops. The Kuhn's grocery would still be much larger than a Save-a-Lot that's been proposed for the same site on Centre Avenue. The Kuhn's would also offer other amenities like a pharmacy and bakery, while the Save-a-Lot would not. Redwood says Hill residents would prefer a full-service grocery store.

Pittsburgh's Urban Redevelopment Authority will meet Thursday to choose between the two proposals.
