Foodland Center has been a downtown Juneau shopping institution for more than 50 years. Over those 50 years it has certainly grown and changed but nonetheless has remained the only shopping center in the core of Juneau. Conveniently situated in the Federal Building area and near the Douglas Bridge, it has been the grocery / deli / spirits / drugstore / and many other purpose one-stop-shopping center serving all of downtown Juneau and Douglas Island. The nearest competitor, Fred Meyer, sits six (6) miles north from downtown. Mendenhall Valley-based grocery stores and shopping centers are even further away. The 10,000 population count of downtown Juneau, Douglas, West Juneau, and North Douglas are served exclusively by Foodland Center. And since the downtown-based State and Federal government centers are the largest employers, a significant percentage of Juneau residents from the Valley population areas work in the downtown core and have access to Foodland while traveling to and from work.
