A central Tucson shopping center, more than 70 years old and once the location of stores such as McLellan’s and Korby’s department store, has been sold.

Larsen Baker, through his affiliate Rancho Developers LLC, bought the 80,000-square-foot Rancho Center, 3302-3416 E. Speedway, for $10 million.

Built in 1950, the shopping center is now home to Whole Foods Market, Bookmans Entertainment Exchange and Zia Records.

The new local owner does not have immediate plans for changes to the center, which is about 80% occupied.

Larsen Baker was represented by his broker Isaac Figueroa, and the seller was represented by Debbie Heslop, with Volk Co.
