Poway-based Barons Market grocery store has announced the opening of its ninth location at Otay Ranch Town Center in Chula Vista's Eastlake area. Slated to open winter 2019, the newest Barons will be the center's first grocery store.

“For years, the South Bay San Diego community has requested a Barons Market,” said Rachel Shemirani, Barons Market vice president of marketing. “We owed it to the community to seek out a perfect store location that reflected the tight-knit culture of the neighborhood and Barons’ family values."

The 21,000 square foot space plans to bring approximately 50 jobs to Eastlake.
