It’s unclear when construction is expected to start or when the center will open.

The newest AJ’s, homegrown grocer Bashas’ upscale market, is scheduled to open Nov. 10 at 31311 N. Scottsdale Road.

The new AJ’s space is smaller than other nearby supermarkets, but it includes a large cheese selection, bakery, bistro, cappuccino bar, wine cellar with tasting emporium, cigar humidor, floral boutique, farmers market, butcher’s corner, seafood grotto, sushi bar, and the brand’s signature outdoor barbecue and patio dining.
