Vallarta Supermarkets, one of the largest Latino-owned supermarket chains in California, has announced the grand opening of its new location in Van Nuys, California. The new store is located at 16040 Sherman Way, just a few miles away from where the first Vallarta location opened over 30 years ago. This is Vallarta Supermarkets’ 53rd store.
Representatives from Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office; the office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl; the office of LA City Council President Nury Martinez; the office of Sen. Bob Hertzberg; and office of Assembly member Adrin Nazarian joined Vallarta Supermarket’s executive team for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the official grand opening.
The new location opened its doors April 28 to the community by offering a free bag of groceries to the first 300 customers, along with free samples, photo booth opportunities, mariachi music, ballet folklorico dancers and a performance by the Van Nuys High School marching band.
Vallarta also donated a total of $5,000 to local schools including Van Nuys High School, Birmingham Community Charter High School, Mulholland Middle School, Bassett Street Elementary School and Van Nuys Elementary School as part of the grand opening celebration.
Vallarta also celebrated the reopening of its newly remodeled store located nearby at 9136 Sepulveda Blvd. in North Hills, California. The celebration included giveaways, raffles and live entertainment.
“We are proud to open our newest store in Van Nuys, the location where our business success story first began,” said Andrew Lewis, VP of marketing for Vallarta Supermarkets. “Customers can expect the same authentic Latino products and cuisine while enjoying a spectacular shopping experience in this gorgeous new location.”
Vallarta’s newest location will offer a wide variety of food products and services including La Cocina, an in-store Mexican taqueria and kitchen, with recipes serving traditional meals. For those looking for variety, the new store will also be offering fresh sushi – prepared daily by an in-house sushi chef.
The location will feature a full-service Carniceria (meat department) offering fresh, top-grade meats, as well as poultry and seafood. The Panaderia (bakery) will be serving sweet and savory baked goods made from scratch including pan dulce, bolillos, cakes and pastries. The Tortilleria will produce freshly made tortillas and masa for customers’ tamal making needs. The location also has an in-store juice bar, La Isla, to provide refreshing made-to-order fruit juices, including agua frescas as well as ice creams.
