The owner of New Leaf markets announced today that construction has started at the old Albertson’s location in Half Moon Bay. From the press release:

"This is going to be our flagship store," reports Scott Roseman, President of New Leaf Community Markets. "At 22,000 square feet we will be offering an expanded selection of prepared foods, gourmet cheeses, fine wines, and the best selection of organic fruits and vegetables on the San Mateo County coast." New Leaf is a leading natural foods retailer in Northern California, with five locations in and around the city of Santa Cruz, two of which have licensing agreements with New Leaf to use the name.


I’ve been in two New Leaf stores in Santa Cruz and I would say that they are not anywhere as large as 22,000 square feet!  I think that bodes well for even better selection than elsewhere.

I heard that a New Leaf will also be sprouting in Pacifica - in the PAC gym space in that shopping center at with NorCal, Nona’s, etc(they will be moving to the Dollar Store space next to the Log Shop on Crespi in March). Anyone know anything about that?
