Costa Mesa Mother's Market to Move Into Soon-To-Be-Vacated Borders Spot

Here's another tip from our friend Craig Medici! In around the Triangle Square area, you might have noticed that Borders is closing. If you didn't, then the signs they put up recently should provide a little bit of a clue.
What's not obvious, however, is what's going to go in its place. This would be Mother's Market, as Craig told me. The Costa Mesa branch of the local grocery store chain will be moving from its current location two blocks away on 17th street to this higher traffic spot by summer.
Bigger spot notwithstanding, methinks that it will still be hard to get to, just like the Borders. I've only once figured out how to get into the bookstore's parking lot from Newport Blvd., and that was by accident. But then, I'm a Costa Mesa noob who is used to the grid-by-grid organization of Irvine and Tustin. What do I know?
