The Corona Del Mar Gina's is just a hop-skip-and a jump over the hill from UCI..... and TOTALLY worth it.

Godiva's out.

Heard a rumor that the Albertson's on Alton and Culver will be closing in Feb and replaced by a Super HMart.

Same thing with the Albertson's up by Northpark.

Anyone heard this too? I think it's on NextDoor.

Not a rumor anymore. Both stores will close by February 19th and be replaced by HMarts.

2 Albertsons in Irvine closing in February with H Mart taking their place
The stores will cease operation by Feb. 19.


"Two underperforming Albertsons supermarkets in Irvine are closing next month and will be replaced by Asian-owned H Mart grocery stores.

In a statement issued Monday, the Southern California division of Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions announced the closure of stores at 3931 Irvine Blvd. and 3825 Alton Parkway. They are expected to cease operation by Feb. 19.

“Like all retailers, we are continually evaluating the performance of our stores,” the company said. “Closing a store is always a tough decision, but we are focused on growing our business by being the favorite local supermarket and running stores where people love to shop.”

Workers at the stores were notified of the pending closures Jan. 5. The company said its human resources team is working with the employees and their union to share employment opportunities at surrounding stores.

Officials with United Food and Commercial Workers Local 324, which represent the workers, said the move will result in “a loss of good union jobs for the city,” although the organization was informed that members placed at other stores will retain their wages, benefits and seniority.

The closures will impact roughly 60 employees at each location. The Irvine Boulevard Albertsons is  52,120 square feet and the Alton Parkway store is 59,974 square feet.

The new H Mart supermarkets are scheduled to open by the end of the year.

Headquartered in Lyndhurst, N.J., H Mart has 97 locations nationwide.

H Mart stores can be found throughout Southern California in Arcadia, Buena Park, Cerritos, Diamond Bar, Garden Grove, Irvine, Los Angeles and Torrance. Additional  stores can be found in San Diego and San Jose.

The Korean-American markets offer a broad range of food, including meat, seafood, curry, Ramen noodles, seasonings, seaweed, rice and grains, as well as health supplements, beauty products, clothing and kitchen items.

Supermarkets have been considered essential businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, but like other businesses that handle a large daily influx of shoppers they have grappled with virus outbreaks among workers.

A recent report from NBC 4 noted 146 outbreaks last month alone at supermarkets in the southern part of Los Angeles County and in Orange County, according to data obtained from UFCW, Local 324. That includes outbreaks at 31 Ralphs stores, 17 Vons and 16 Albertsons supermarkets."

Wienerschnitzel at Walnut and Jeffrey has closed and is being replaced by a KFC.

I wish 7 Leaves moved over there so they could have a drive thru.

Did you see the sign in the Drive Thru at Weinershnitzel?  It's hand written and says something like...

"We are closed... FOREVER"  <Big Frowny Face>

Kinda funny.

Sad, but not surprising.

Ice House (next to it in the parking lot) looks closed as well.

This place is usually crowded but not really packed.  I hope we get something good there and not just another furniture store.

OfficeMax in Irvine Marketplace is closing. (Office Depot near the Walmart that closed last month off Technology closed in December).

Currently 30% off regular prices (not that anyone considers paying their regular prices). Not sure of their last day.

Did you try the Dim Sum?  How was it?  Good sub for DTF?
