I was invited to the Grand Opening and Preview Night at Smart & Final in Whittier, California last Tuesday and I was impressed. I live in southern California where there is no shortage of grocery stores.
Smart & Final is a warehouse store with warehouse size items and savings but without the club fee. They have just what you need without a lot of other distractions and temptations if you know what I mean.
You can get in and out, get the savings you need and not feel like you put a giant dent in your budget. It’s less expensive and less daunting than a big box warehouse club store.
If you go to several stores for specialty items, give Smart & Final a try. You may find all the items you like, all under one roof and make Smart & Final your primary shopping destination, saving you both time and money.
The new Smart and Final combines some of my favorite features of a grocery store, all under one roof:
Fresh Fruit (#1 on my list)
Clearly Labeled Aisles
Bins for Bulk Items (I like these better than the open scoop type, don’t you agree?)
A Great Selection of Meat, Poultry & Fish
Well Stocked Shelves
Wide Aisles – you can easily fit two carts side by side, love that!
Flowers, Plants and even Fresh Herbs
