SANTA MARIA, Calif. – It’s a frenzy at the northwest corner of South College Drive and Betteravia Road in Santa Maria.
“They are starting grading work on a new shopping center … it’s called Enos Ranch West … so it’s thought of as an extension of the existing Enos Ranch Shopping Center,” says Community Development Director Chuen Ng of the City of Santa Maria.
City developers say the new shopping center will include an Aldi’s Grocery Store as well as a Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers Restaurant.
“I’m excited for new stores coming in … I think our town is growing and it’s nice to have a lot of choices to shop at,” says shopper Debbie Sharer.
“There are two drive-through‘s as part of the shopping center … so one of the drive-through‘s will be the fast food restaurant … the other drive-through could be a coffee shop … we don’t know yet,” says Ng.
Ng says this new shopping center will bring new jobs and more local businesses to the community, “Despite the pandemic, we still look forward to the growth of the local economy.”
The new Aldi’s Grocery Store and Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers Restaurant are expected to open sometime this year.
