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.a store directory smart & final

The new Smart and Final combines some of my favorite features of a grocery store, all under one roof:

I love finding new grocery stores that I will enjoy shopping at. We dont have any Smart and Final in our area.

I like the concept of a warehouse store without a membership. I save a a lot by buying in bulk for things like nuts and baking needs.


I’m definitely looking for a Smart & Final around my are, loved the fruit section. From the images everything looks in order, fresh and clean, Thank you for sharing this post and allowing us to become aware of this market.


We don’t have any Smart & Finals around here but I would shop there if they did. Their produce section looks amazing!

We have Smart & Final here although I haven’t been there in a long time. You can definitely get some great deals.


This supermarket is beautiful. I would love to shop here and am a little jelly of you. I would totally spend all of my time in that meat aisle. It’s gorgeous.
