“San Franciscans go gaga for farmers markets, and who doesn’t love their corner bodega? But it when it comes time for those major shopping trips (hello, 4th of July BBQ!), most city dwellers agree that we need more supermarkets. Fortunately, a few franchises are coming to our rescue:
Trader Joe’s – Everyone’s favorite bastion of fresh produce, pre-made dips and Two Buck Chuck is set to open yet another San Francisco location. TJ’s – NOB HILL Edition is set to open in 2012 and at approximately 14,000 square feet it stands to be one of the larger city markets. The store has recently signed a lease in the heart of Nob Hill at 1401 California Street, at the corner of Hyde. Permits are expected to be finalized by end of 2011 and renovations to the interior and exterior are in the works.
Fresh and Easy – The third San Francisco-based Fresh and Easy Market opened this past week in the Outer Richmond. Sitting at 32nd Avenue and Clement Street, the chain has seen big and happy crowds since the opening on June 22nd. Residents were sent $5 off coupons to encourage them to come in and check out the store. A fourth location that will serve the Bayview community is scheduled to open at 3rd Street and Carroll on August 24.
Safeway – The long planned and patiently awaited renovation of the Safeway at Ocean Beach has finally been officially submitted to the Planning Commission. The plan calls for residential housing and major renovations to the existing market.”
