Two Eateries Return to the Boulevard

Work is underway to prepare a new Jamba Juice store in the former ‘Lette Macarons location.

Thirsty shoppers on Larchmont Boulevard may be hit with a sense of déjà vu in coming months.

Both Groundworks and Jamba Juice, which left Larchmont Boulevard this past year, are returning to re-open their doors in new spaces.

Groundworks is jumping across the street from its former location at 139 N. Larchmont, which now houses Bardonna, a cafe, to 150 N. Larchmont, where Sam’s Bagels used to be before moving two doors north.

In a joint statement, the three partners of Groundworks explained the move.

“After we parted ways with our licensee, we knew that we wanted to remain a fixture not only in the neighborhood, but also in the daily coffee rituals of its residents and visitors….” the statement read. “We’re looking forward to serving this community in the spring.”

Jamba Juice closed its doors at 158 N. Larchmont—currently the home of Bluemercury—last spring, but is planning to re-open in the much smaller former location of ‘Lette Macarons at 122 N. Larchmont.

In a statement from Jamba Juice headquarters on behalf of the franchise operator, the opening date is pegged for March.

“The new space will allow for optimal efficiency and is a great fit for Jamba,” the statement read. “We’re excited to continue to inspire and simplify healthy living for our customers in Larchmont with hand-crafted premium blends.”
