Sonora, Ca — An announcement on the opening of a new grocery store in the Junction Shopping Center could come next week.
The space that was formerly occupied by Albertson´s has been vacant since the store closed in February of 2007.
?All I know is that the sale is in escrow and supposed to close this Friday,? says Junction Shopping Center Manager Margaret Davis. ?There´s a sign on the door saying that they are going to hire a lot of people.?
The suitor for the space is Marina Marketplace, which is based out of Stockton. It is not immediately known if that would be the name of the new store.
A Marina Marketplace company spokesperson says that an announcement will be made next week, assuming that the sale is finalized.
