The Raley’s Bel Air, California, location at the corner of Arden Way and Eastern Avenue in Arden Park reopened late last week with a new look.
The Bel Air store has been open since 1958.
The store received some infrastructure upgrades, as well as a more modern interior to make shopping more convenient and easier for customers, the company said. The renovation took six months.
“The store required a comprehensive remodel, including infrastructure. Our customers have been loyal and deserved a modern, fresh new store," Chelsea Minor, corporate director of public affairs for The Raley’s Companies, said in a statement.
Some upgrades to the store included: new infrastructure, including bathrooms, cases and refrigeration; and a new parking lot with eCart delivery service spots for “click and collect,” giving customers the option to pick up grocery items at the store.
The newly redesigned and remodeled store’s kitchen will offer a selection of grab-and-go prepared foods, chef-crafted sandwiches and salads. Catering options, such as gourmet cheeses and prepared meat products, will be available. The store’s new “wellbeing for everybody” department features clean-label health-and-body care products, and in the floral department, customers can order custom-made arrangements. Other specialty items at the store include gourmet pet treats made with human-grade ingredients.
Additionally, Raley’s remodeled Bel Air location includes several areas for shoppers to gather and connect. From birthday parties to book clubs, the Something Extra gather room is available to rent for all Raley's rewards club customers. There’s also a Drink Coffee, Do Stuff café at the new location that features Lake Tahoe specialty coffee, as well as a wine and beer bar that offers individual glasses of wine and small bites, and an outdoor patio.
Based in West Sacramento, California, Raley’s operates more than 120 stores in Northern California and Nevada. The company’s banners include Raley’s, Bel Air Markets, Nob Hill Foods, Food Source stores and Sak N’ Save.
