Tagged with: | | | | | |

Smart & Final, a US grocery warehouse store chain, will open its new store on 8 January 2020 at Jordan Downs Plaza, a mixed-use public housing community located in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, as per the latest retail industry news.

The new grocery store in the Watts neighborhood is an important part of the redevelopment of the Jordan Downs Plaza, said the Los Angeles-based Smart & Final, which has 255 grocery warehouse stores across the US. The retailer said that its new grocery store in the Jordan Downs Plaza will offer employment scope in the community in addition to giving easier access to fresh, organic and quality foods.

Dexter McLeod – L.A. South Chamber President said: “The Los Angeles South Chamber of Commerce welcomes Smart & Final to the community, and we are excited about our new partnership to help build and sustain our local economy.

“South Los Angeles, particularly Watts, has a high rate of unemployment, wealth disparity and food insecurity. By providing local jobs, healthy food options and community outreach programs, Smart & Final will be a beacon of hope in the community.”

The new grocery store in the Watts neighborhood will generate 50 full- and part-time jobs.

Aldo Duran – Store Manager of the new Smart & Final location said: “We’re proud to be providing jobs and bringing convenient and easy access to fresh and healthy foods to this neighborhood.

“We’re excited to be part of the redevelopment of Jordan Downs, and we’re looking forward to serving the community for many years to come.”
