The Prospect corridor in Midtown Kansas City has been without a full-service grocery store for a little over 10 years.
That is how long it has been since owners threw in the towel on the store at the old Linwood Shopping Center.
The area could have a real grocery store back soon – probably a SunFresh store. But, city staff estimates it will cost taxpayers up to a half-million dollars a year to underwrite the project.
Councilman Jermaine Reed, whose district the shopping center would serve, called support for the project a council responsibility.
