Racetrack Remodel Update
Racetrack will not be open on Saturdays during construction, though our store at 45 Griffith Ave will be open from 9 am to 1 pm on Saturdays during this time period. We plan to open our newly remodeled store at Racetrack in September 2015.
In September 2014 we sent all member households the letter you can access here regarding the many changes we have in the works. There's lots of shiny stuff happening at CHROME!
