GLASSELL PARK - The long wait may be coming to an end. The Glassell Park Fresh & Easy appears very, very close to breaking water and popping out food to the starving masses of Northeast LA. A reader emails this digital picture of the storefront nearing completion noting that the sign has just been installed and paint touch-ups are underway. Again, we are awaiting an official announcement on an opening date. Stupid secretive Tesco.
SOUTHLAND - The Fresh & Easy roll out appears to be overtaking the Famima!! and Pinkberry menaces in terms of new locales. A frequent Curbed emailer identifies 5 (cinco) new stores planned for the metro area. "...they surely got active on the last day of August, applying for 5, count 'em 5, liquor license transfers to open new stores in Moreno Valley (near the distribution center), east Long Beach, Laguna Hills, Orange and Arcadia."
