With San Francisco’s first two Fresh & Easy locations scheduled to open their doors in Bayview and the Outer Richmond early this year, according to the San Francisco Business Times Fresh & Easy is also close to inking a lease for the (not so long) shuttered DeLano’s Market at 1245 South Van Ness in the Mission.
I heard Tesco’s Fresh & Easy is interested in the closing Delano’s on 18th in the Castro. Ralphs Supermarkets sub-leases the building to DeLano’s. They evicted them because they owe back rent on the store plus 5 others.
Could this be one DeLano’s down for Fresh & Easy with five to go?
UPDATE: Apparently the new new rumor has it that Mollie Stones will be taking over the defunct DeLano’s in the Castro but a lease has yet to be signed. If so, perhaps that’s how Fresh & Easy is ending up in the Mission (and why we don’t typically cover the changing of existing grocery store flags). Cheers.
