DUARTE, CA - The Duarte community is celebrating! The long awaited new Smart & Final Extra! opened at 7:00 am sharp on June 29, 2016 to dozens of anxious shoppers. The store provides the Duarte community with a new grocery shopping option at the Buena Vista Market Place shopping center located at the northwest corner of Buena Vista and Huntington Drive in the former Ralphs grocery location.
Smart & Final Extra! stores combine warehouse savings with market freshness. The new store includes many new features, including a larger selection of meat, deli and frozen food products; an expanded produce section that includes organic produce; dry bulk foods by the pound; good and well sections filled with natural and organic products; and oven-roasted chicken. With 50% more club-sized items than club stores, Smart & Final Extra! Stores also offer great value, quality and convenience for households, businesses and community groups, all without a membership fee.
The new Smart & Final Extra 30,000 sq. ft. location created approximately 50 new jobs for the area and is generally larger than the company’s traditional “core” store. The brand carries more than 15,000 different items, about 8,000 more than its usual warehouse store in a broad range of sizes.
