Smart & Final will open a Smart & Final Extra! on Dec. 14 in San Jose, California. Located at 430 Blossom Hill Road, the 39,000-square-foot store will offer customers a selection of household and club-sized products, available without a membership fee.
The grocery warehouse store, which will be open daily from 6 a.m.-10 p.m., will provide shoppers with USDA-certified meats, fresh and organic produce, frozen and packaged grocery items, a bulk department and a sushi bar, as well as personal care and household products.
About 75 positions are being filled in the region to staff the new store and other locations in the area. Those interested in applying for positions can visit smartandfinal.com/careers for information.
“I’ve worked for Smart & Final since graduating from high school right here in San Jose,” said Carlos Santa Cruz, store manager. “I’m thrilled to provide Smart & Final’s budget-friendly selection of products for both households and local businesses in my own community. We offer more club-sized products than the average club store, which saves our customers money and time.”
Store features will include: food options such as First Street meats, cheeses, bread; organic groceries and eco-friendly options; a sushi bar, which will serve freshly made rolls; an assortment of fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables; a stocked deli department, which will include First Street Oven Roasted Chickens for grab-and-go meals; a variety of household and club-sized products; fresh floral arrangements; and online delivery in two hours or less, as well as large business orders beginning Dec. 17.
On opening day, customers can receive a free branded tote bag and enter to win a Smart & Final Gift Card. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place Dec. 14 at 10 a.m.
In celebration of the opening, the Smart & Final Charitable Foundation will present $2,500 donations to two local-based organizations, the athletics program at Oak Grove High School and Frost Elementary School.
