Vintage Grocers, which describes itself as a “curated community-minded market and retailer of gourmet, organic, natural and conventional foods,” will open its second location this fall, at The Promenade at Westlake in Los Angeles. Vintage Grocers—whose first location anchors the grounds of Trancas Country Market in the heart of West Malibu—has partnered with leading retail developer Rick Caruso and Caruso Affiliated to expand its presence in Los Angeles.
“We’re excited to build on the success of Vintage Grocers and engage another neighborhood in the experience of the store,” said Paige Laurie, owner of Vintage Grocers and Trancas Country Market. “Caruso Affiliated has had a transformative effect on Ventura County, and we’re thrilled to be part of their premier dining and retail destination, The Promenade at Westlake.”
Added Kloe Colacarro, head of leasing for Caruso Affiliated, “At Caruso Affiliated, we align ourselves with strong tenants that offer the utmost level of quality in their business. Vintage Grocers is no exception as we welcome them into our community, and we are excited to add another exceptional merchant to our growing portfolio.”
Double the size of the current store, the second Vintage Grocers location will offer a wider range of in-store products from the finest meats, produce and seafood to fruits, vegetables and more—sourced from Southern California’s leading food establishments and local artisans, the company says. Additionally, Vintage Grocers at The Promenade at Westlake will feature a private wine tasting room, fresh poke, olive bars as well as pressed juices daily. The new store also will include an expanded bakery, meat and seafood selections and a variety of grab-and-go stations such as burrito, pizza, ice cream and coffee bars.
“Vintage Grocers was created as a place where exceptional foods and relationships are deeply rooted in the shopping experience,” said Eric Fuchser, market director of Vintage Grocers. “We’re excited to join the Westlake Village community and introduce a new standard of excellence in food and customer service.”
