One crystal ball prediction sort of coming true


After rolling out their latest store concept in Long Beach’s Belmont Shore neighborhood, Safeway/Vons’ newest concept, “The Market by Vons,” is heading to Downtown LA, according to sources familiar with the project. The official site and opening date have not yet been released.

The Market is a small-format grocery store — about 15,000 square feet — being tested in urban neighborhoods in Southern California.

This is in keeping with my prediction that small scale retail may be making a comeback. Cool! I just hope this opens up in the Historic Core. That would make my life much easier.
