AT LAST…A NEW MARKET IN LAND PARK!

AT LAST…A NEW MARKET IN LAND PARK!

AT LAST…A NEW MARKET IN LAND PARK!

The rumors have been running rampant for years. Trader Joes was it’s favorite topic, but there were others. The eyesore of Land Park and South Land Park sat on the corner of Sutterville Road and Land Park Drive. LaBou and Parkside Pharmacy did their best to improve it’s patronage and appearance, but they could only do so much. This strip shopping center needed not only tenants and a new facade, but the internal workings included leaking roofs and outmoded electrical systems. Something had to be done. It was announced yesterday that Sunflower Market signed a 30 year lease! At last an opportunity to offer a new market to the neighborhood, but to improve the street scape as well! It can be assumed that the neighbors will be elated to have a close, well stocked market just around the corner. It also offers a nice mid-sized market to compliment the plethora of offerings of Raley’s and the specialized, gourmet offerings of Taylors Market. Welcome Sunflower...
LAND PARK IS GETTING A TRADER JOE’S…FACT OR FICTION?

LAND PARK IS GETTING A TRADER JOE’S…FACT OR FICTION?

I know…you are thinking that Land Park residents have heard this rumor before. That was my first reaction. This is just the same old rumor being reborn…except maybe not!Land Park has longed for a Trader Joe’s ever since the first time we heard of the possibility of it becoming a Land Park neighbor. It isn’t that we don’t have some great stores in the neighborhood. Raley’s has been here for 30+ years. I have already told you about Taylor’s Market. A Trader Joe’s would round out our choices nicely with it’s off-branding and continual offerings of well priced goods.It would replace the now rarely used Prime Market on the corner of Land Park Drive and Sutterville Road. It would certainly be a turn-around for this shopping site. Land Park Pharmacy closing it’s doors was a tragic loss. Thankfully, a pharmacy is coming back along with a few new offerings. It is my hope, and I am sure the neighborhoods as well, that along with Trader Joe’s will be an improvement to the shopping center’s appearance.So, is it coming to Land Park? Well, I have heard this from people who I respect and who should be “in the know” more than most anyone I know. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed!www.PaulaSwayne.comPhoto from Flickr by...
