Not a Very Happy Thanksgiving for DeLano’s Market Employees
These photos come from a post we did eight months ago called Scenes from the Final Days of Delano’s. Happily, we were wrong. Delano’s has hung on tight, but things aren’t exactly looking up. A note from a concerned reader:
I was just in there and saw what was pretty obviously a death-powwow, in the meat (and what used to be the decent cheese) section. What I overheard was about the store closing, being laid off, and treating things like business as normal for now.
Things have been looking grim there recently.. it was better for a while, but the stock is getting slimmer all the time and products that run out are increasingly not replaced.
Again, I’m mostly concerned about the people who work there, who have in recent years gone from indifferent to awesome and I think really care about the place. A secondary concern is of course that I might not be able to buy an onion or case of pbr at 11:30pm without walking to safeway.
Sources tell us the company had been looking for a buyer, but that that effort is not panning out.
How much longer can this place plug along?
