Woodlands Market to open in Tiburon

The Belvedere Land Company has stirred sleepy Tiburon into life by announcing that the Woodlands Market will take the place of the Boardwalk Market when the grocer's lease runs out in 2011. According to the Martin IJ:
Jeanne Fitzgerald, who has operated the Boardwalk at 1550 Tiburon Blvd. since 1985, said Jim Allen, president of the Belvedere Land Co., phoned her in February to tell her of the decision. "They didn't negotiate with me at all," Fitzgerald said. "I asked them why not, and he said he wasn't talking to anyone but Woodlands."

Also heading out is the Bayside Garden Center, while other tenants are being told that leases will not be renewed beyond 2010. All of which suggests a major overhaul of the center is on the cards.
