Grocery Outlet Bargain Market is moving into Highland Park.
The discount supermarket is replacing a portion of the former Fallas Paredes, at 5461 N. Figueroa St., according to plans filed with the City of Los Angeles.
Recent leasing materials for the site confirm the plans, listing Grocery Outlet as “coming soon” to 18,518 square feet of the anchor-unit.
The remaining 9,448 square feet is still available for lease.
An opening timeline has not yet been disclosed, but a late-2020, early-2021 debut is likely.
Earlier this year real estate insiders speculated that a grocery tenant would take the shuttered Fallas Paredes space, specifically a Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods Market.
Gardena-based National Stores Inc., Fallas Paredes’s parent company, filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in 2018 sending several of its stores packing including the Highland Park location.
Highland Park is one of several Los Angeles neighborhoods getting a Grocery Outlet as part of the company’s recent plans to open nearly a dozen new local outposts of the discount grocer.
