SILVER LAKE — It seems there are more construction workers than shoppers these days at the Glendale Boulevard strip mall that was once housed a Ralphs market. Much of the center has been torn up as the center gets a major makeover in preparation for the arrival of a Whole Foods’s 365 store, which will replace the Ralphs.
The center’s CVS pharmacy remains open. But watch your step in the parking lot out front, where giant holes have been dug into the ground. Meanwhile, in the back of the shopping center, crews have punched a hole in the wall near the former location of the 20/20 video store. “It’s been 3-1/2 years since we locked the doors,” said former video store employee Joanie Stevenson, who snapped a photo of the construction.
Neighbors will be have to put up with a few more months of demolition, digging and construction. The new Whole Foods 365 store is not expected to open until next fall.
