Apparently the employees at the Delano’s IGA supermarket on 18th Street were notified yesterday that the chain is closing in a week. This will leave a portion of the neighborhood without a market in walking distance – the nearest store will be the Safeway at Church and Market. Although expensive, it will be missed!
The IGA took over the old Lucky’s store that had been there for years. Maybe this is the opportunity that Trader Joe’s has been looking for?
