The new site will be built from the ground up and will serve the master-planned community of Ontario Ranch


San Bernardino, CA (September 28, 2018)-  Stater Bros. Markets is pleased to announce thatplans are currently underway to build a new store at the southwest corner of Ontario Ranch Road and Haven Avenue in the city of Ontario, California.  The new site, which will be built from the ground up, will anchor the New Haven Marketplace, developed by Frontier Real Estate Investments, LLC. 


The Company expects to break ground on this site in the spring of 2019 and anticipates a grand opening in the fall of 2019. 


Once constructed, the full service supermarket will stand at 44,662 sq. ft. and include full-service meat, seafood, service deli and bakery departments; an extensive selection of fresh and healthy offerings; customer-friendly aisles; many energy saving and environmentally friendly practices; and a décor scheme reflective of the local community.


The new store will be Stater Bros. fourth location to serve the community of Ontario.  The Company’s existing Ontario supermarkets are located at 1105 West Philadelphia Street, 1939 Fourth Street and 646 West Holt Boulevard.


“This new site demonstrates the Company’s strength through continued growth in addition to our ongoing commitment to the community of Ontario, which we have served for over 61 years (since 1957),” stated Stater Bros. CEO Pete Van Helden. “We look forward to the grand opening of this store and are thrilled to continue providing our loyal Ontario customers with the best grocery shopping experience in the area,” Van Helden concluded.
