The kitschy Cala Foods store at California and Hyde Streets is officially going to become a Trader Joe's, as the Business Times reports. The developer who had planned to build some condos on the spot with retail underneath the Prado Group, the same developers who are building condos with a Whole Foods underneath at 2001 Market Street, near Safeway has shelved the idea in favor of renovating the existing grocery store and bringing TJ's in. The store is about 14,000 square feet and slated to open next year. [Biz Times]
