Andronico’s Opening Soon

I remember it as Co Op Foods before it was a Nob Hill.


Andronico’s is a specialty market operated by Safeway with unique offerings that may not be found at regular Safeway stores…

…Anderson previously said the store was first built and opened in 1960 as Purity Supermarket before becoming a Nob Hill Foods some years late.

And under Stupid Things Moe Ammar Says:

“New Monterey and Pacific Grove residents will have access to a very unique shopping experience that is not available on the Peninsula,” said Ammar, who also noted the store’s convenient location, close to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. “Aquarium visitors, staff and volunteers can walk a block and do not have to drive to Whole Foods at the mall.”

Drive to Whole Foods? When there’s a Safeway, Trader Joe’s, Lucky and high priced Grove Market close by?

Well they have a good location among the rest of the high priced businesses. Will they have cheap wine for the frequent shoplifters or Safeway offerings, Trader Joes parking with Whole Foods prices?

“We are excited to introduce Andronico’s Community Markets to the Monterey community,” Safeway spokeswoman Wendy Gutshall told The Pine Cone Wednesday.

Andronico’s — which is supposed to be open in the former Nob Hill spot by Thanksgiving — was a small San Francisco Bay Area chain that Frank Andronico, a native of Greece, opened in 1929 in Berkeley. While it once had nine locations,
it fell on hard times, and Safeway purchased its remaining stores, and now it plans to open one here.

P.G. Man Robs Nob Hill

Internet searching indicates a Ryan Curry is a Pacific Grove painting contractor.

Ryan Curry, 34, was taken into custody about 9 p.m. outside Nob Hill Foods, 900 Lighthouse Ave., said police Sgt. Aaron Delgado.

Police responded to a report of a man with a gun, but the suspect didn’t have a weapon, Delgado said. While in the store, the man evidently said he had a weapon or indicated he had one under his clothing, Delgado said.

People scurried from the store during the incident, Delgado said.

All police found on the man was a bottle of alcohol and food, he said. Curry was arrested on a shoplifting charge
