Stater Bros. Markets Plans New Location in Riverside

San Bernardino, California (July 8, 2021) – Stater Bros. Markets is pleased to announce that plans are in place to build a new store at the southeast corner of Arlington Avenue and Van Buren Boulevard in the city of Riverside, California. The new store, which will replace an existing location at Arlington Avenue and Tyler Street, will occupy 49,922 square feet of a former 96,864 square foot Kmart building.

Construction will commence in winter of 2021 with the store opening in summer 2022.

The project will bring 150 construction jobs and 100 new store-level jobs to the area.

The upcoming supermarket will feature an array of offerings, including full-service meat, seafood, service deli and bakery departments, a vast selection of fresh and healthy offerings, spacious aisles, and a décor scheme reflective of the local community. In addition, the store will implement eco-friendly practices such as the use of energy-efficient equipment and energy-saving LED lighting.

“Stater Bros. has been an integral part of the Riverside community since 1948 and we are excited to open this store which will offer significantly expanded offerings for our customers,” said Stater Bros. CEO Pete Van Helden. “This new location will take our legendary excellence in food and service up to an even higher level to meet and exceed the expectations of today’s consumers.”
