Trader Joe's to open on Nob Hill at Cala Foods location 

A Trader Joe’s store will take the place of Cala Foods at California and Hyde streets in Nob Hill, according to a press release Tuesday from the grocer.

The new 14,000-square-foot store is set to begin renovations of the 1960s-era building in January. The store was the subject of speculation last summer, when a plan to build a 107-unit condominium and retail development was discussed by the Prado Group, a local firm that eventually began courting other grocers to take over the site.

Neighborhood groups were concerned about the affordability of a potential new store because, they said, Nob Hill is home to a range of income earners. The release said neighborhood residents should expect to find “Fearless Flyer,” the store’s publication of new items and other discussion, in their mailboxes soon.
