Loma Linda fresh & easy delayed…again

First it was November, then it was January, now it’s anybody’s guess.

According to this story on The Sun‘s Web site, the opening of the Loma Linda fresh & easy has been pushed back to who knows when, due to the shriveling economy.

The building at the corner of Mountain View Avenue and Redlands Boulevard is complete and ready to be stocked (it appeared that way when I drove by last year), but there’s no telling when it will open.

Spokesman Brendan Wonnacott indicated that they generally don’t announce new store openings until about a month prior, which means the Loma Linda store won’t open until late February at the earliest.

Also in opening-date limbo are stores in Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario and the two stores in Rialto, not to mention planned openings in Mira Loma, Pedley, Riverside, Moreno Valley, Calimesa, Beaumont, Corona, Menifee and Lake Elsinore.
