The Vons grocery store in La Cañada Flintridge on Foothill Boulevard will be taken over by Gelson's, according to the La Cañada Sun. A rep with Gelson's told the Sun that the switch is scheduled to take place in December.
Gelson's is an upscale grocery chain—recently described as "swanky" by the L.A. Times—with 17 locations in Southern California, many in higher-end neighborhoods like Santa Barbara, Pacific Palisades and Newport Beach. The parent company of Vons was seeking a sale of the Gelson's stores in July.
