Delano’s is Dead
It had been on suicide watch since around April, but now the Mission’s only supermarket (is Duc Loi a supermarket? That’s a whole other debate–not helped by an 8pm closing time) appears to be gone for good. Sure, the prices were atrocious, and the selection wasn’t great, but it was open late (a great boon for folks who didn’t finish up their busy days until 10pm) and the staff was exceedingly friendly. What will happen to that charming security guard?
Now we are left with the question of what to do with the massive industrial husk left over on South Van Ness. Do we try to get Trader Joe’s to move in (they are having trouble securing that Market Street location). Finally move forward with that Peace Park in the parking lot?
What do you think?
