BRAINTREE – Construction of an Amazon Fresh grocery store off Route 3 is underway. 

The Braintree Planning Board has approved the retail giant’s plan to turn the former Saks Off 5th and 5.11 Tactical spaces into a 37,500-square-foot Amazon Fresh store at the Grossman Drive shopping plaza. 

The former Saks Off 5th and 5.11 Tactical stores in Braintree are being converted to an Amazon Fresh grocery store.

Construction includes changes to the storefront, entrance and walkway, as well as installing corrals for shopping carts. 

According to Amazon’s website, there are no Fresh stores in Massachusetts. 

Amazon’s first Fresh store, a 35,000-square-foot traditional supermarket, opened last year in a strip mall in Woodland Hills, California.
