Grocery Outlet to open two new San Francisco stores in Richmond District and Visitacion Valley

San Franciscans could soon have more options about where to buy food.

City officials on Wednesday announced the lease of two sites to the discount chain Grocery Outlet, which is aiming to open stores in the Richmond district and Visitacion Valley. The announcement came the day before the Planning Commission is scheduled to decide the fate of a proposed Fresh & Easy store near City College of San Francisco.

The Grocery Outlet stores, which would be located at 6333 Geary Blvd. and 2630 Bayshore Blvd., are expected to open next summer or fall, company spokesman Charles Goodyear said.

Supervisor Eric Mar, who represents the Richmond district, said in a statement that Grocery Outlet “offers San Franciscans the healthy and affordable food choices I have been advocating for.”

Supervisor Malia Cohen, whose district includes Visitacion Valley, said that neighborhood “has been working for years to attract and sustain a grocery store.”

Cohen said Visitacion Valley “will benefit greatly from an anchor grocery store that can provide fresh, healthy food and complement our small neighborhood markets.”

Grocery Outlet, which is headquartered in Berkeley, currently has 185 stores in six Western states and Pennsylvania.

The Fresh & Easy store would be located on Ocean Avenue at the former site of a Rite-Aid, planning documents show. That site would be only the second full-service grocery in the neighborhood, according to The City.
