Cardenas Markets Expanding West to Orange, Los Angeles Counties

Cardenas Markets, a fixture of the Inland Empire’s grocery scene for 38 years, is setting out on a westward expansion.

The Latino-themed supermarket chain, which operates 59 stores, has never had a location west of Pomona. That will change in May when Cardenas opens its doors in Whittier.

That store, using 34,642 square feet in a former Stater Bros. at 11750 Whittier Blvd., will not be the last one Cardenas adds in the coastal areas of Southern California, said Marco Robles, Cardenas’ public affairs director. The store will employ about 120 people.
