It appears the long wait to fill the former Save-A-Lot space (at 6828 SE Foster) is over.
A tipped-in reader pointed out that the marketing flyer for the remaining, vacant commercial spaces in that plaza show the Save-A-Lot space occupied. And not only occupied, but with a named tenant.
It’s not Trader Joes, folks. Let’s just get that out of the way.
And it’s not New Seasons. (Guys, we have Kaah Market, the newly opened WinCo, and the soon-to-be Bread & Roses Market all nearby—we probably can get by without the fancy shmancy grocery store.)
And, sadly, it’s not a bowling alley or indoor skate park (as I’ve secretly dreamed about).
So that’s the bad news—most of you will be completely underwhelmed, especially with this exceptionally long lead-in.
The good news is that we’ll have less vacant parking lot, less empty storefronts, and more people coming to the neighborhood.
Here’s a very premature and slightly speculative welcome-to-be to DaVita Kidney Care. The healthcare provider that specializes in dialysis and general kidney care appears to be occupying the landlord’s storefront diagram. Assuming it’s not a mistake or outdated, we’ll just go on record with this: the Save-A-Lot era is over, and so too is the pondering and wishful thinking for what that space would someday become. For now, though, we get jobs, healthcare, and services with an eventual DaVita move-in—that’s a plus and way, way better than what we have now.
