Update: Willow Glen


When I drive past the vacant building at Bird and Minnesota Avenues in Willow Glen, that was once an Albertsons, I can’t help but wonder what business will eventually occupy the space. I believe most Willow Glen residents would prefer a new grocery over another type of retail. I’m happy to report that our wish may come true.

Yesterday afternoon I stopped in at the Zanotto’s market on Naglee Ave. to pick up a few things and ask any employee, or anyone who looked to be a Zanotto’s family member, my question. My question is always the same, “So, do you think Zanotto’s will be opening in Willow Glen?”  The reply is always a version of, we don’t know.  Yesterday was different. Yesterday I was told that things are being worked out, and it would take approximately five months to get the store ready to open. Not a positively absolutely yes that Zanotto’s will takeover the old Albertsons, but close enough to start a shopping list for Thanksgiving.
