Stater Brothers has announced that its store in Escondido will be closing in January.
The Times-Advocate reached out to Deputy Director of Economic Development Jennifer Schoeneck to see if she could share any insights on this.
“Stater Brothers made the decision to sell the store and the deal closed in November 2022,” said Schoeneck. “The new owner is currently looking for a new retail tenant and is being represented by CBRE.”
She added, “Stater Brothers has not said why they made the decision to sell. I did find out that all employees were either offered an opportunity to move locations to a different store, or UFCW Local 135 is helping them find new positions elsewhere.”
