Posted this on the Calif Board, but it got deleted. I'm still curious what others think. Saw a 'Bristol Farms Coming Soon' sign on the old Albertson's store in that grotty shopping center on Country Club & Monterey. It's so bad, even Albertson's moved across the street ;-) My first thought - they'll never survive there with the the presence of the excellent Jensen's all over the desert. OTOH, there's no upscale market in that specific area, & with Mission Hills, Morningside, Avondale, etc. CC's, maybe they will make it.
Will also be interested to hear comparisions once opened - I love Jensen's, but have a Bristol Farms right by me at home, which I rarely frequent. If you live in the area, will you continue to drive to Jensen's or switch to BF's?
