The guessing game about what will replace the Save A Lot market in Echo Park began shortly after The Eastsider reported last month that the Sunset Boulevard discount grocery had closed its doors. It’s not clear if the space is even available but a resident has started a Facebook page to encourage Trader Joe’s to open up shop in the now vacant market next to the Walgreens at Sunset Boulevard and Echo Park Avenue. But several others have suggested that Fresh & Easy – a relatively new and expanding chain of British owned markets – is a contender. The Eastsider contacted Fresh & Easy to see if they were interested in opening a store in the Save A Lot space. Company spokesman Brendan Wonnacott replied via email:
I can confirm we are looking in the area but don’t have any other details at this point.
Let the guessing game continue.
