Sign of Progress

The sign on Downtown's new Ralph's Fresh Fare store went up yesterday. In an even more exciting step, the fencing blocking off the sidewalks on 9th and Hope has been removed and pedestrian passage around the store is unimpeded for the first time.

I can't say that the Ralphs is going to get me to give up my love of grocery delivery, but it'll certainly be a nice thing to have open in the neighborhood. Everything I've heard points to an opening date around July 6th, but I haven't heard of any official ceremonies set yet.

It was early 2005 when construction got started, and just this January that Ralph's got the keys to the store.
