Smart & Final Reaches Milestone With Extra Banner
Smart & Final Stores Inc. has reached a new milestone today, opening the 200th location under its Smart & Final Extra banner, in Long Beach, Calif.
The 30,000-square-foot store offers both household and club sizes of products at warehouse prices, but without any membership fee requirement. Shoppers have access to expanded frozen, deli and meat selections; a full fresh produce section with organic options; and various grocery and household staples offered in a wide range of sizes. Extra stores typically provide an additional 6,000 club-size items compared with the company's namesake stores.
Other features of the new store include high-quality perishables such as First Street brand bacon, cheeses and meats; a wide selection of organic offerings from Smart & Final's Sun Harvest brand; Good & Well sections, including organic and natural foods; and products tailored to business customers, such as to-go containers, janitorial supplies and foodservice goods.
In addition to its in-store experience, the store offers home delivery via Instacart. Shoppers can visit shop.smartandfinal.com to build and place their orders.
"We have deep roots in the community of Long Beach, where we opened our very first Smart & Final location, so it's fitting that we celebrate our 200th Extra! store here," said Jason Oliva, store manager at Smart & Final Extra! Long Beach. "We look forward to welcoming our friends and neighbors and showing them that they'll find much more than a traditional grocery store. Whether they're shopping for their family, business or organization, or looking to host a memorable event, we can be their one-stop shop for farm-fresh produce, organic foods, party supplies and bulk-sizes on hard-to-find items."
Based in Commerce, Calif., Smart & Final Stores operates 322 stores: 195 Smart & Final Extra stores, 63 Smart & Final stores, and 64 Smart Foodservice Warehouse stores. The company is No. 20 on Progressive Grocer’s 2018 Super 50 list of the top grocers in the United States.
