Now, Paseo Colorado Loses Gelson’s
March 18, 2013
“After almost 12 years of operation in Pasadena, we have reached the difficult decision to discontinue operation of the Pasadena store,” said Rob McDougall, Gelson’s President in a news statement.
“While an exact closing date is unknown, we do expect it to occur sometime in July.”
“All of our Gelson’s Pasadena employees will be reassigned to alternate Gelson’s locations; no employee will be involuntarily displaced due to this store closure,” McDougall said.
Officials with Los Angeles-based Arden Group Inc. said its Gelson’s Markets subsidiary gave notice of termination of its Pasadena lease in accordance with the lease terms and intends to close the store on or about July 21.
Gelson’s plans to transfer some of the fixtures and equipment from the Pasadena location to the new Long Beach store, officials said.
Gelson’s previously announced that it has entered into a lease for the new store in Long Beach, which is being remodeled from an existing supermarket and is expected to open late this year.
“It’s been an honor serving our loyal Pasadena shoppers and the surrounding community–we genuinely appreciate your years of support,” McDougall said. “We hope to continue to serve you in one of our 16 other locations.”
