Grocery Outlet expanding into Hazel Dell in early 2013

first_imgLow-price food seller Grocery Outlet Bargain Market will go after Hazel Dell shoppers with a new store set to open early next year in a long-vacant Albertsons’ space.The retailer’s third Clark County store will be in the Northgate Village Shopping Center on the northeast corner of Hazel Dell Avenue and Northeast 99th Street, said Josh Oliva of HSP Properties in Vancouver. Grocery Outlet is a Berkeley, Calif.-based chain of more than 175 independently operated stores in six Western states. Local company stores are in Camas at 3308 N.E. Third Ave. and Vancouver at 5800 N.E. Fourth Plain Blvd.With the site established by Alberstons as a grocery retail location, the Hazel Dell location should come with built-in clientele, said Bill Coyle, a vice president with the Grocery Outlet chain. “We liked the fact that it was last occupied by Albertsons, a very dominant grocery player in its day,” he said.Oliva confirmed the Grocery Outlet chain has signed a lease to take up about 22,000 square feet of the former Albertsons’ store, which closed in August 2006.“It’s a good tenant and we’re certainly happy to get the space leased back out,” said Oliva, whose father, Steve Oliva, co-owns the retail center with Tualatin, Ore.-based Gramor Development Inc., a regional shopping center developer.last_img
