Tesco’s plans to open three new Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Markets in San Francisco have been slowed down with mid-2010 now looking to be the first opening.
The store in Bayview was planned for a new mixed-use building currently being built at Third Street and Carroll Avenue by Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group. The group’s managing director, Alicia Glen, said Fresh & Easy’s delay has slowed construction of the building by several months. However, she had met with Fresh & Easy executives recently and they affirmed the chain is still committed to the project.
The development of a Fresh & Easy in the Portola neighborhood and another on at Clement and 32nd Avenue in the Richmond have been “delayed indefinitely.”
