Employees of Glendale's Golden Farms market this week confirmed speculation that the space currently housing a Ralphs market on Glendale Avenue soon could become a Golden Farms market.
Manager Albert Grigorian said Wednesday that Golden Farms, located at 6501 San Fernando Road, plans to open another location at 1010 N. Glendale Ave., which will become vacant when Ralphs closes on April 12.
On Monday, an unidentified store employee also confirmed plans to open a Golden Farms in the Ralphs site.
However, no building permits had been pulled as of Wednesday afternoon.
Even though a store representative said last week that someone from Golden Farms would talk about any news this week, repeated attempts to contact the store's owner this week were unsuccessful.
A representative of CD Investments, who identified his company as the "landlord" for the property, said Thursday no agreement has been signed with Golden Farms, and that the investment company isn't looking to announce plans for the space.
According to the Los Angeles County Assessor's Office, Glendale Square Holdings LLC owns the Glendale Avenue property.
Golden Farms offers a variety of specialty food items from central and eastern Europe in addition to fresh produce and meats.
