To get into Pomona on Friday morning, I took Indian Hill to Holt and was pleased to see the new supermarket replacing Food 4 Less on that corner is nearing completion. The construction fence is down and the store’s exterior looks about done. It’s called El Super and the building looks much better than the slowly decaying Food 4 Less did.
The interior still needs work — I could see scaffolding through the open front door — but it can’t be long now.
This part of town could really use improvements and attention. It’s nice to see the rather sharp-looking supermarket, which replaces an eyesore.
Speaking of attention, the City Council on Monday discussed buying an empty lot just east of the Bekins tower, a welcome sign of interest.
