The new Amazon Fresh will compete with nearby Stater Brothers, Grocery Outlet and Pavillions locations.

Kroger, operator of the Ralphs on Wardlow Rd/Los Coyotes Diagonal, announced its closure (along with a NLB Food 4 Less) effective early April after the LB City Council voted to require hero pay of $4 per hour for workers who face greater risk during the COVID-19 pandemic. A Kroger lawsuit challenging the City ordinance remains pending.
