Buildings Removed Next To New Sagaya's Midtown Market
ANCHORAGE – Notice a big empty space north of New Sagaya’s Midtown market at 3700 Old Seward Highway? The Emissions Test Center and Tire Factory along 36th Ave. recently relocated, freeing up more parking for customers of New Sagaya’s Midtown Market, L’Aroma Bakery & Deli, and Kaladi Brothers Coffee Company.

“It has been a long time coming. The ultimate goal is convenience for customers, particularly during the holidays,” said Paul Reid,” owner of Sagaya Corporation.

New Sagaya's Markets offer Alaskan Seafood, Asian groceries, and Chinese prepared foods. L’Aroma Bakery & Deli specializes in European Artisan Breads and pastries, baked fresh daily. Kaladi Brothers Coffee Company is well known for its fresh air roasted coffee, produced locally. The trio of businesses is a popular one-stop-shop for customers in Midtown.

Reid and his mother founded New Sagaya in 1976. The store was originally located at 3309 Spenard Road and had 13 parking spaces. Business expanded and New Sagaya relocated to its current location in the 1980’s.
The current midtown location provides 108 parking spots, but demand is once again growing. Recognizing yet another need for additional parking, Reid acquired the adjacent property North of New Sagaya’s Midtown market in 2003. The Emissions Test Center and Tire Factory continued to occupy the property because they were under a previous lease. The lease recently expired, allowing Sagaya Corporation to remove the buildings and provide more parking for customers.

“Our customers are the No. 1 priority,” said Reid. “I’ve always believed in taking risks to benefit customers. New Sagaya expanded during the recession in the 1980’s. Again, we pushed forward with the parking expansion, despite the current economic downturn.”

The new parking area has been leveled and is available for parking immediately. Plans are in the works to pave the parking area next spring. Future expansions will take place if necessary.

Sagaya Corporation is the parent company of New Sagaya’s Midtown Market, New Sagaya’s City Market, Sagaya Wholesale, L’Aroma Bakery & Deli, Europa Bakery and Europa Café.
