North Pasadena Vons May Close


A spokeswoman for Albertsons, Inc. said Friday that the Vons Market at 1390 Allen Avenue just north of Washington Boulevard may close “in the near future.”

“While we are currently having discussions with the landlord to continue leasing our Vons store on N. Allen Avenue in Pasadena, there is a possibility we will be forced to leave the store,” Jenna Watkinson, Director, Public Affairs for Albertsons Southern California Division said.

The store has operated in that location for 41 years.

“We are disappointed by this situation and sincerely hope we can come to an amicable agreement so we may continue to proudly serve the Pasadena community in this location as we have since 1976,” Watkins said.

Should the Vons close, a vast swatch of Altadena and North Pasadena will have to travel a significantly increased distance to grocery shop.
