Bristol Farms' Newport Beach Undergoes Extreme Makeover
Bristol Farms reopened the doors to its newly remodeled Newport Beach store this week to scores of curious and enthusiastic shoppers who swarmed the aisles to experience the store’s new design and enhanced offerings.
The debut of Bristol Farm’ sole Orange County store, located at 810 Avocado Blvd. at the corner of MacArthur and Pacific Coast Highway, was met with much fanfare as one of the regional retailer’s most celebrated stores.
