Stater Bros. is pleased to announce a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. to celebrate the construction of the company's newest and most modern supermarket in the Redlands Village Shopping Center, which is being developed by Lewis Retail Centers.

The new Redlands, CA, Stater Bros. supermarket will be located on the northwest corner of Lugonia and Wabash Avenues and will replace a smaller Stater Bros. supermarket located at 1786 Lugonia Avenue.
