Bring Trader Joe's to the Sun Valley/Shadow Hills/Sunland-Tujunga Area!
At the intersection of Sunland and Glenoaks in Sun Valley, a Ralphs Market recently closed down and the space is available.
For sometime, since losing the Trader Joe's location in La Crescenta, residents in the Sunland-Tujunga, Shadow Hills and La Tuna Canyon communities have lamented the lack of quality shopping. We believe a Trader Joe's at this site would serve a significant need and could represent a very good opportunity for the retailer.
Our Foothills communities contain a diverse residency, many of whom escaped more urban/suburban areas of the Valley, Los Angeles, and elsewhere for a more rural lifestyle. While they may have left the big city, their desire for Cookie Butter, Charles Shaw Wines, fine cheeses and wonderful produce did not leave them.
In addition to being near the aforementioned communities (and immediately near Shadow Hills and La Tuna Canyon while being equestrian in nature are quite affluent) the location is on an important commuter corridor connecting the Foothills communities to Burbank,Sun Valley, North Hollywood and other parts of the San Fernando Valley. The location has significant foot traffic and visibility as well as sufficient and convenient parking.
We understand the property owners and developers would be very interested in Trader Joe's locating at this site. We wish to show Trader Joe's they will have significant support if they come to our community. Therefore, this petition is asking that Trader Joe look at the site, meet with the community and strongly consider opening a branch of their great store that we could patronize regularly without having to travel a long distance to other Trader Joe's stores.
