Los Angeles-based food retailer Smart & Final, which was founded on the concept of providing food and foodservice supplies for industry professionals, is further branching out to cater to the everyday shopper.
The company will convert six more Orange County locations to its Smart & Final Extra concept.
The Extra stores are targeted to customers who want the convenience of one-stop shopping without the heavy focus on bulk, warehouse or professional foodservice supplies.
The locations getting the extra treatment are in Anaheim, Irvine, Lake Forest and Buena Park. Two stores in Santa Ana will be converted.
The newest Santa Ana Smart & Final Extra opens on Sept. 2 at 1523 W. 17th St., replacing the traditional Smart & Final at 422 E. First St.
