The Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association (TMVOA) and Darin Hill, the owner of the Market at Mountain Village LLC (MMV) are both pleased to announce that, effective October 1, 2019, grocery operations will be transitioned to a new operator. During the transition period, the market will be closed for renovations, with the grand re-opening for Memorial Day weekend 2020. Mr. Hill will continue to operate the liquor store, which will remain open during the renovation.
The comprehensive renovation and remodel will begin in October. The remodel will include a complete re-design and layout of isles, departments and customer flow. The renovated market will include all new modern equipment, flooring, lighting, deli department and offering, as well as a new indoor seating area. The renovation will also include enhancements to the exterior of the building that will provide for a more modern look with more windows and glazing as recommended in the approved Town Hall Subarea Plan that was an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan in June 2017. The new market will open under new management on Memorial Day weekend.
TMVOA is pleased to announce that the new market operator has a long history of experience in the Telluride region. John Buxman, Jr. of Buxman Enterprises, Ltd., whose father John Buxman, Sr. operated the grocery market on Fir and Pacific in downtown Telluride for almost 30 years is excited to be returning to the area to operate The Village Market in Mountain Village. The Village Market currently operates grocery stores in Edwards, Colorado; Moab, Utah, and Ketchum / Sun Valley, Idaho.
