After 32 years, Tresierras Supermarket in Newhall closed, according to the sign posted on the front of the grocery store.

A family-owned grocery retailer since 1944 announced the closing is “with deep regret,” however that it plans to open a larger store at a new location in the Santa Clarita Valley soon.

Tresierras, a full service supermarket, has four other locations in Santa Paula, Pacoima, Oxnard and Sylmar, where the company is headquartered.

At one point, Tresierras had plans to move into a 28,900-square-foot building at a newly built Stagecoach Plaza in 2006 on Newhall Avenue and Carl Court.

By the time the shopping center was finished, the country was rapidly falling sliding into the recession and the grocer decided not to move into the new location due to the downturn in the economy, said a spokesperson with the city of Santa Clarita in June 2012.

Now 70 years old, the family owned and operated chain originally opened its first store in San Fernando when the family patriarchs moved from Santa Paula only to find that the Latino community in the San Fernando Valley was dramatically underserved.
