Fresh and Easy coming to Fremont

UPDATE: I might have jumped the gun on this. The real estate guy who posted a flier online showing Fresh & Easy as part of the shopping center says the deal isn’t finalized, but negotiations are getting close. He says he should know for sure in two weeks.

Thanks to a TCB reader for news that Fresh & Easy, the Brittish-based supermarket chain is opening up a store at Mowry and Blacow in the same shopping center as BevMo.

Meanwhile, another reader tells me The Hub is looking barren with the departure of OfficeMax. The nearby Borders bit the dust several months ago.

And, a couple of mom and pop restaurants are gone: Wok City Diner in Warm Springs and Mission Jarrito in Mission San Jose.

  1. Rumor has it that Staples is opening in the Office Max space – not sure that makes sense given the fact there is a Staples at Pacific Common but it would be nice.

  2. OfficeMax is moving across the street and south near Blockbuster. At least Fremont has office supply stores. Newark has nothing. Not even a pet shop.
