Raley’s hosted a grand opening Wednesday of its new, state-of-the-art store at Fair Oaks Boulevard and Howe Avenue in Sacramento. It marks the first of five new stores the company plans to open in the next 18 months.

Located in the established Campus Commons/Arden neighborhood, the 35,000-s.f. store offers customers an assortment of fresh, high-quality food and a unique shopping experience, according to the West Sacramento-based grocery chain.

“This new store has an even greater focus on health and wellness, with a larger assortment of natural and organic offerings,” said Raley’s CEO and Board Chairman Michael Teel. “The amenities and product mix reflect the direction I envision for all of our stores and will serve this neighborhood well. We are excited to expand our vision to a new market area in Sacramento.”

At the heart of every business decision is Raley’s ongoing drive to infuse life with health and happiness, the company says. The store features specialized culinary offerings, including an enhanced foodservice counter with a Kombucha bar, sushi, a meat carving station, a salad/hot food case and more. Additionally, the store offers a boutique-like bulk food section featuring spices, herbs and grains, as well as an expanded vitamins and supplements department. To enhance the personalized shopping experience, Raley’s says it will have on staff two nutritionists and a wine steward to offer guidance in their respective fields to customers.RaleysFamiles_OPT1_RGB_(3)

“As consumer habits have changed so significantly in the last few years it is very exciting to be a part of this new, more efficient approach to grocery shopping,” said Mark Marvelli, director of commercial/retail studio for Stafford King Wiese Architects.

Raley’s also says it is a leader in sustainability and strives to contribute to a cleaner community. Environmentally-friendly features were a primary consideration in this development. The store is equipped with solar panels that can generate two megawatts of power. The system successfully generates much of the energy needed onsite, relieving pressure on the grid during peak hours. In addition, the store includes many energy-efficient features, including refrigeration, lighting and more. In partnership with EVgo, the store has two fast-charging stations, which can provide up to 80 miles of electric range in 25-30 minutes.

“Sustainability is, and will be, part of infusing life with health and happiness for many years to come, as we pave the way to healthier communities,” said Raley’s President and COO Keith Knopf. “We designed this store with this neighborhood in mind—offering specialized design features, fresh food offerings and personalized customer service.”

Raley’s operates more than 120 stores in Northern California and Nevada under four banners: Raley’s Supermarkets, Bel Air Markets, Nob Hill Foods and Food Source.
