VONS OPENS ON THE MESA

Vons market has opened at 2010 Cliff Drive, the former home of Albertsons and Haggen. Reader Primetime stopped in to check things out and sent me this report:

“New Mesa Vons in Santa Barbara shows local look in a unique pocket of the city with few choices. Neighbors smiling. Modest prices for the working class. Higher end for those on that budget. Enough to fill college refrigerators at packed SB City College. Only one other large market choice on the Mesa was a problem after Haggen imploded and Albertsons was gone for months. (Vons and Albertsons are one now.) Grand opening had specials and freebies. Many local wines, beers, custom made Santa Barbara food products, and organics.”

    Each aisle of the store, in addition to a number, is labelled with a Santa Barbara street name: Milpas St., Garden St., State St., Shoreline Dr., Las Positas Rd., maybe another one or two I forgot. Cute.

    I sure hope they put the Bank of America ATM machine back inside. I really miss not having an ATM on the Mesa!!
