Gelson’s Markets, one of Southern California’s most well known upscale grocery chains, announced Monday it’s going to double down on Hollywood by adding a second store to the town known best for the Academy Awards and movie glamour.
The company said it has entered into a lease for its second Hollywood location, which is to be erected at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Gardner Street.
“We are very excited to announce our second location in Hollywood, which will be developed by Cadence Capital Investments, LLC,” said Gelson President and CEO Rob McDougall. “The success of Gelson’s current Hollywood location on Franklin Avenue and the continued influx of residents has made further development in the community necessary.”
The project, which is subject to governmental approvals, is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2018.
Gelson’s, with stores primarily in the westside of the Los Angeles area and in the San Fernando Valley, has been on something of an expansion drive recently, taking over locations from defunct markets in the Coachella Valley and other parts of Southern California.
