BIZNOTE: Admiral Metropolitan Market hours changing as remodeling work starts tonight

ORIGINAL REPORT, 8:14 PM SUNDAY: Thanks to Richard for the tip – signage now up at Admiral Metropolitan Market (WSB sponsor) alerts customers to a temporary change in hours, starting tonight. Interior remodeling work is getting under way, so the store – usually open 24 hours – will be closed overnight starting at 10 pm on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. The sign explains it:

(In case you can’t read the gold-stamp text at left, it says the coffee shop on the south side of the store will open at 5:30 am.) We’ll be following up with Metropolitan Market management tomorrow for details of the remodeling work and how long it’s expected to last.

ADDED MONDAY MORNING, 8:28 AM: Thanks to the neighbor who shared a letter that Met Market distributed to neighbors over the weekend to let them know that the construction work would be starting. It says the work will result in “new offerings” including “house-made pizza … a new Asian Wok station … and Gelato.” The note also says the work is expected to last until November 11th. We have an inquiry out this morning with store management in hopes of finding out more about the changes.

    those signs have been up for at least yhe whole weekend, I believe a little longer.

      We were there last night and I didn’t see them; we wind up stopping there almost daily while checking things out in the north end. If they really were there sooner and I missed them, shame on me. We went there early this evening just to find out more, after Richard’s tip, with a side trip to the Delridge police search. Didn’t get to talk to a manager – it was all hands on deck for long lines at the checkstands – but will be checking with the home office tomorrow. – TR

      P.S. I will change the verbiage to “now up” as that is quantifiably accurate regardless of when they were posted.

        I stopped by on Saturday evening around 9 (because I’m a sucker for B1G1F coupons for $8/lb chicken breasts) and recall seeing a sign about reduced, non-24 hours.  I remember being concerned, until I got to the second line about Friday being 24 hrs still.

    I don’t know what they could change, They are the best market in Seattle. I need a chocolate chip cookie. Yum :D

      They stopped carrying  samosas in the deli and the cilantro/mint chutney that goes with them in the prepared pesto/sauces area a short time later, but that’s not really a remodel issue.  Safeway still carries samosas but has never had that chutney.

      The sign is also a bit confusing, since it stretches “24 hours” Friday by opening at 6 AM Friday and not really talking about Sunday in large print.  I guess making a “we’re open” sign is trickier than a “closed overnight 10PM-6AM on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday” version.

    Hopefully part of the changes are not allowing dogs in the store with their owners unless a service animal.

    Oh, please get the gelato from Bottega Italiano at PP Market.

    • Cherable September 19, 2016 (11:14 am)

      Where is PP Market?

      The lower Queen Anne Met Market partners with Gelatiamo for its gelato so I presume it’d be the same. Gelatiamo is comparable quality to Bottego Italiano IMHO :)

    REALLY appreciate the alert; I’m a night-owl and go there often; did NOT see any signage

    Cherable,  Pike Place Market.

    Those food options sound right up our alley!

Sorry, comment time is over.
