Ladera Ranch Albertsons was never sold to Haggen, the Pavilions neaby was.
This is correct. That store will become a Stater Bros this year.

Anti business climate? The 6th largest economy in the world!

LOL

Not surprised they would use that excuse.
Actually California passed Great Britain a couple years ago and is now the 5th largest economy in the world FWIW.

It’s sad to see how far Randalls has fallen.
The article posted earlier says only 13 stores left. If that is true it really is sad to see how far they have fallen.

Re: Ralphs Encino Closing Jan 31

The entire center is 95,000 sq. ft. and the only other tenant of any size is a CVS. Definitely well north of 50,000 sq. ft. https://caruso.com/our-portfolio/encino-marketplace/ According to that site the center opened in 1994. If Ralphs' lease expired last year that means they had a 25 year lease, ...

Re: Ralphs Encino Closing Jan 31

This location is only about two miles from the once and future Pavilions in Sherman Oaks at Ventura and Kester (although to be fair, that's on the opposite side of the 405 freeway, which is a huge psychological barrier). Yeah, the freeway makes a huge difference. In addition the stores serve two co...

Re: Ralphs Encino Closing Jan 31

I'm curious if the new tenant could be Amazon's new grocery concept. I know that they were looking at getting a number of locations under contract throughout the LA area. That's definitely a possibility although I would think that the neighborhood demographics would be better suited for a Whole Foo...

Re: Ralphs Encino Closing Jan 31

This store opened across the street from Gelson's corporate office and one of their best stores just after Ralphs poached some of their best executives to help run the then new Ralphs Fresh Fare format. On the one hand Gelson's is probably glad to have them gone but it will be interesting to see who...

Re: Pavilions Sherman Oaks New Build Plans

I am surprised they are just now presenting the plans. The old store closed two years ago. I would have thought they would have had a better idea of what they wanted to do before closing the old store.

Re: Smart & Final Extra

Do they even have any stores anymore that are not badged Extra? Even the little 14k square foot store in Bishop has been badged Extra for years now. All the ones I know of have converted to the Extra format... There are still quite a few in Los Angeles. Here are a few near my office. Beverly Blvd. ...
