High-end supermarket chain Gelson’s Markets won bankruptcy court approval to buy two more former Haggen properties in Laguna Beach and Carlsbad, Gelson’s President and Chief Executive Rob McDougall said in a statement.
Terms of the deal were not announced.
“We have many shoppers coming to our Dana Point store from Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, and Aliso Viejo; we’re thrilled to be able to open a store closer to these shoppers,” McDougall said of the Laguna Beach store.
The Laguna Beach store is expected to reopen by April, spokesman Bron Heussenstamm said.
