It appears that a “Fresh” battle might be brewing on Milpas St. Just as Fresh & Easy is about to open at 336 N. Milpas St (their signs are up), I have now received word that Scolari’s at 222 N. Milpas St. maight be replaced by “Fresh Market.” Here is a message I received from my long-time friend reader Pete:
I was at Scolari’s today and the store is quickly selling off the last of the inventory…..now at 30% off. The employees are saying that the store will become a “Fresh Market” which they describe as a cross between Lazy Acres and Trader Joe’s. Fresh Market is from the east coast and is apparently just starting to enter the California market. Apparently Fresh Market has no affiliation with the Fresh and Easy market opening up the street.
I don’t know if any of this information is true, but the store employees seemed pretty confident of it.
Here’s some info about Fresh Market (the first one is a blog about Fresh and Easy AND it’s competitors):
