Good Food Holdings—the organic grocer’s parent company—is applying for an “adjustment process” requesting an increase in parking from 85 stalls to 95.

The ask was discussed Thursday at a Hollywood United Neighborhood Council Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) Committee meeting.

It’s unclear when Rite Aid would close but the 23,233-square-foot retail building was put on the market for $21,500,000 in 2018.

Once the pharmacy chain vacates, Lazy Acres would begin transforming the site into its “fresh format store.”

Plans call for a 8,160-square-foot addition to the existing building, facade upgrades, a new entry tower and “front apron sidewalk canopy” to accommodate shopping carts, and an exterior seating area for al fresco dining.

Sun Cleaners, a dry cleaner fronting Franklin Avenue, would be demolished to allow room for the additional parking.

Lazy Acres was founded in 1991 and currently operates five SoCal stores: Long Beach, Encinitas, San Diego/Mission Hills, Hermosa Beach, and the original in Santa Barbara.

The grocer offers a full assortment of organic produce, organic and all-natural grocery items, premium grain, and grass-fed meats, fish, and a comprehensive full-service vitamin/supplement and body care department.

Additionally, it has prepared food and fresh bakery departments which prepare items with only clean ingredients (i.e. all-natural or organic).

Lazy Acres also carries a wide assortment of craft beers and a full selection of wines.

The store will also boast juice and coffee stations, according to the plans.
