Newer, greener Stater Bros. opens in Grand Terrace

Folks in Grand Terrace got a grand spankin’ new Stater Bros. this week.

The new market is 72 percent bigger than the ’70s-era one it replaces.

It’s also greener than the old store.

It is one of four Stater Bros. markets to earn the Environmental Protection Agency’s GreenChill Award for its energy-saving components, including an efficient refrigeration system and skylights.

As part of the grand opening celebration, the company split $7,500 between the Colton High School band, the Sheriff’s Explorers program and a children’s program at the Grand Terrace Branch Library.
