Grocery Outlet Moving To Long Vacant Nugget Site In Greenhaven Area

Grocery Outlet in Greenhaven, Calif.

Grocery Outlet Inc. has leased a former Nugget Market site in Sacramento’s Greenhaven area.

The Sacramento Business Journal reports that the deep-discount grocer will invest nearly $2 million to remodel the 23,000-s.f. building at Florin Road and Riverside Boulevard.

The building has been vacant for about a decade—ever since Nugget moved out for a bigger space on Florin near Greenhaven Drive.

Grocery Outlet, a Berkeley-based chain of more than 185 independently operated stores, is shooting for a mid-September opening, Bill Coyle, VP of real estate for Grocery Outlet, told the Journal. The retailer has not yet selected an operator for the store.

The remodel will consist of a new roof, removal of asbestos, new lighting and an exterior facelift, Coyle said.

Grocery Outlet will offer consumers in the Pocket-Greenhaven area an alternative to the higher end Nugget and Bel Air Market stores, he told the Journal.

“We’re going to be the value proposition for that part of south Sacramento,” he added.

Grocery Outlet has been considering the site for about three years.

“It took a few years to put it together,” Coyle said.

In the lease, broker Vern Park of Sierra Pacific Retail Group represented Grocery Outlet and the Southern California landlord, according to Coyle.

Grocery Outlet’s news comes only a month after the retailer announced that it had subleased the former Sunflower Farmers Market spot in the Roseville Square shopping center.
