Smart & Final Stores, a warehouse grocer, opened its 200th Smart & Final Extra! location Oct. 17 at 4480 Atlantic Avenue in Long Beach, California.
Regular store hours are 6 a.m.-10 p.m. every day of the week. The 30,000-s.f. store on Atlantic Avenue and E. 45th Street offers products in both household and club sizes at warehouse prices without a membership fee.
“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, Smart & Final Extra! Long Beach, ahead of the opening. “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.”
With expanded frozen, deli and meat selections, a full fresh produce section with organic options, and grocery and household products offered in a range of sizes, Smart & Final’s Extra! format stores provide an additional 6,000 club-size items as compared to traditional Smart & Final stores.
Other store features include:
- Perishables such as First Street brand bacon, cheeses and meats
- Organic offerings from Smart & Final’s Sun Harvest brand
- Good & Well sections, including organic and natural food products
- Goods tailored to business and household customers like to-go containers, janitorial supplies and foodservice items
- Home delivery via Instacart at shop.smartandfinal.com
Smart & Final executives and leaders from the Long Beach civic, business and nonprofit communities participated in a ceremonial ribbon cutting. The Smart & Final Charitable Foundation presented checks, each in the amount of $2,500, to Boys & Girls Club of Long Beach and Dare to Care for the Homeless. The donations are part of Smart & Final’s corporate commitment to supporting organizations and causes in the communities where it operates stores.
