There is talk among some Echo Park residents that Fresh & Easy, the British-owned grocery store chain, has agreed to open an outlet in the former Save A Lot space on Sunset Boulevard and Logan Street. But Fresh & Easy spokesman Brendan Wonnacott said the chain, which operates a store in Glassell Park, is interested in the Echo Park space but would say no more. “We’re looking at the site but can’t confirm anything past that at this point,” he said via email.
Save-A-lot, which shared the building with a Walgreens drug store, closed its doors in March. The partially vacant building was once home to Pioneer Market, which closed in 2004 after more than 60 years in business.
