Stater Bros. to shut down two stores

Stater Bros. will close stores in Fontana and Colton, both because of expired leases.

The Fontana store at 9954 Sierra Ave. is scheduled to close June 4, while the Colton store at 1904 N. Rancho Ave. will shut its doors June 18, said Jonatan Lieu, Stater Bros.’ spokesman.

No employees at either store were laid off, and all have been offered jobs at other stores, Lieu said.

The Fontana store is one of the oldest locations in the Stater Bros. chain, having opened there in 1954. The Colton store opened in 1979.

Details about the lease agreements at both stores were not disclosed.

San Bernardino-based Stater Bros. is the largest private employer headquartered in the Inland Empire, with 170 stores and approximately 18,000 employees throughout Southern California, according to the company’s website.

  1. DBL DAMN GREEDY PROPERTY OWNERS πŸ˜’
    SO GLAD ALL EMPLOYEES WILL BE ABLE TO RELOCATE TO OTHER STORES…

    SAD FOR THOSE WHO SHOP THESE TWO LOCATIONS AND HOPE THERE IS ANOTHER STORE NEARBY

  2. Why the heck ,Staters should have renew the lease or bought the building not displace employees or the customers. I use to shop at that store for 18 yrs when I lived in Fontana ,before I moved. It was a great store and I will be sorry to see it go. Staters should be ashamed of doing this.

    • It is probably more than expired leases that they are closing the store. There is a lit of theft going on in stores and they also have to compete with Costco and Walmart prices. I feel bad for the people that live by that store. Some people cant travel far.

    • I would be mad at the property owners and raising rents. The article also said all employees were offered positions at other stores so Stater Bros. IS doing the right thing πŸ‘ so hooray πŸ™‚

  3. I wish we had a Stater Brothers in the Thousand Oaks area, when I lived in Orange County Stater Brothers was my go to, FABULOUS STORE and great personnel πŸ’―πŸ‘

    We need one in Culver city!

  5. Stores have to shut down when the rent becomes too high versus the profit. These both are pretty crappy areas. And it’s likely that there’s a huge rate of theft or other violent crime going on in and around the store itself.

  6. I stay by the Rancho store, I think I know why they won’t renew the lease. It is on a property with another whole abandoned building. Maybe the lease renewal increased to cover the cost of that other useless building. In the other building, one section has a collapsed roof with a tree growing out of the tenant space. That is just my opinion though.

  7. Does anyone out there know what is going to replace the stater brothers store in Colton that close down. Closing that stater brothers was the wrong thing to do for our community. Now we have to go further out to shop for food very inconvenient. Some of us moved in this area because the stater brothers was right up the street and we could walk to it.
