Santa Ana residents who live near the Northgate Market on East 4th Street are fighting the closure of the low-cost grocery store they have relied on for years.

Northgate Market said the neighborhood will still have nearby grocery store options.

The Santa Ana City Council approved a plan last month to demolish the market and erect luxury apartments in its place. It was one of the first controversial decisions by the new council, which added three members and a new mayor in November.
