Ralphs Saying June for Downtown Opening

Just saw this press release on Business Wire.

Downtown Los Angeles residents, community and business leaders will be on hand when Mayor Villaraigosa presents Ralphs executives with the "key to the store" on Thursday, January 11, at 12:00 p.m. In the past seven years more than 7,000 residential units have been developed in downtown bringing more than 10,000 new residents. In response to this tremendous population surge that is reshaping downtown and creating a vibrant urban lifestyle, Ralphs has decided to make the 50,000-square-foot downtown store on 9th Street one of its upscale Fresh Fare concepts. With the shell completed, Ralphs will immediately begin work on completing the interior in preparation for a June opening.

This is the first I've heard of Ralphs "Fresh Fare concept." I would have liked to think that all Ralphs carried fresh food. It seems logical that Ralphs would go upscale given the market, though.
