February 14, 2015- A picture-perfect February weekend in Peach Springs welcomed Hualapai Tribal members, invited guests and on-lookers to the Saturday morning [February 7th] grand opening of the newly remodeled Walapai Market along Route 66. The ceremonies began promptly at 11:00 AM with a prayer and blessing by Mr. Frank Mapatis, a welcoming speech by Chairwoman Counts, and the ribbon-cutting ceremony which brings a fully operational market back to Peach Springs, that includes a deli, butcher shop and bakery. Ms. Tab Parr, newly appointed member of the Grand Canyon Resort Corporation’s Board, recounted her time in Peach Springs as a youth when her family operated the store in the 1970s and was also glad to see the newly remodeled market open to serve the community.

Special thanks is given to AR Mays Construction and Bollinger Consulting Architects for achieving the remodel in six months from conceptual design to completion. The next phase of construction will be a new fueling station which will also be operated from the market. This project is expected to break ground in February with completion by early April. In all, the market and fueling station will employ 15 people.

Store hours are from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Monday-Friday and 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM on weekends.
