Fresh & Easy, the rapidly expanding supermarket chain that combines the charm of an expensive Trader Joe’s with the mystique of a cheaper Whole Foods, has been approved by the Planning Commission to take over the old Delano’s space. Convenient location in an area where supermarkets are sparse, so for the moment I’m for it. It’ll also have a nice parking lot for the seven of you who drive.
Curbed SF reports:
The Commissioners added a condition that they could only sell beer and wine, since “most kids are not trying to steal wine at the grocery store”. The project was approved 4-3, with the condition that Fresh & Easy must apply for WIC as soon as the moratorium is lifted, and they must aim to meet a 100% local hiring goal.
