New Leaf Community Market will open its new store at 10 a.m. today in the Vintage Hills Shopping Center at 3550 Bernal Ave.
The Santa Cruz-based grocer has taken over space once occupied by Romley's Supermarket, which closed in the 1990s. The building has been empty ever since until a new shopping center property owner began an aggressive marketing campaign and caught the interest of New Leaf partners Scott Roseman and Rex Stewart.
Both will be there Wednesday morning along Mayor Jerry Thorne and representatives of the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce for an opening Day ceremony.
The public is invited to the grand opening, with the store opening to shoppers after a ribbon-cutting.
New Leaf is an independently owned grocer that features locally grown organic foods.
