We had a pair of special guests at this week’s CTRA board meeting: Jason Oberman, representing the ownership of the building at 2100 El Camino that formerly housed the College Terrace Market, and Mark Khoury, whose family is taking over that space to open a new grocery store later this month.
The new market will be called Khoury’s Market and could have a “soft” opening as soon as November 24th. Oberman told the CTRA board about a host of improvements they’re making to the space, including improved signage, lighting, indoor and outdoor seating, painting, and much more. Many of these improvements must be approved by the city first, so they won’t be in place when the store first opens, but will happen piece by piece over the next couple months with the aim of having an official grand opening in January or February.
Khoury emphasized that the store’s initial mix of products is very flexible and he’s depending on input from shoppers to help determine what will be stocked long-term. So, if you visit Khoury’s Market and don’t see what you’re looking for, please let them know! Not only are they open to suggestions, your feedback is essential to the market’s long-term success.
We’re looking forward to welcoming Khoury’s Market to College Terrace!
