Now comes word that a decades-old Lake Tahoe location is permanently closing in early-June.

Let us explore further.

Raley’s, 2023

According to a report from, entitled “Raley’s to Close Heavenly Village Location, Remains Dedicated to South Lake Tahoe,” the location closure is due to a lease issue.

As excerpted from the report: For 60 years Raley’s has served the South Lake Tahoe communities with locations at Heavenly Village and in Tahoe Valley on the opposite end of town. In June, the Village location is set to close due to an expiring lease.

We offered a bunch of different solutions including a rent increase and to continue to invest in the remodel. Unfortunately, the landlord was not in agreement with our proposal.
