A New and Huge Smart & Final Extra coming to Bakersfield and Beyond

Para español da click aquí.

If you live in or near Bakersfield, CA, I have a great tip for you. If you don’t, read on anyway, because a new store may be headed your way soon!

A new Smart & Final Extra! store is opening in Bakersfield! And if you go during opening week, you will enjoy some very special offers, special product demonstrations, samplings of Smart & Final’s Ambiance gourmet coffee and other popular brands, and you can enter a drawing (anytime between June 27 and July 1st) for the chance to win a $500 SmartCash Card!

What is special about Smart & Final Extra!?  Well, it is much larger than a typical Smart & Final warehouse store (25,000 square feet) and it is designed to offer everything business and household shoppers need plus a huge selection of fresh produce.

This new store is located at 4980 Stockdale Highway, Bakersfield, CA

I was there at the grand opening preview event and it looks fabulous. Here are the pictures:

The produce area is very well stocked

I learned the word Extra refers to the normal size packaging we are used to in supermarkets.  As you may know, Smart & Final specializes in offering larger quantities and package sizes, so now when you see the word Extra, it means, in addition to the larger sizes you are used to, smaller packages are available too.  You can see the labels everywhere!

During the opening week (June 27 – July 3rd), you can sample favorite products like these

The store has lots of smaller family-friendy sizes in a variety of categories like dairy, deli, fresh meat, produce, snacks, cereal, bread, etc., while still carrying a large selection of “club pack” size products for stocking-up at your home, business, or organization.  For example, check out the cereals, big boxes on the bottom, family sizes on top.

You can see all the pictures of my visit to Smart and Final Extra! right here.

If you don’t live near Bakersfield, more Smart and Final Extra! stores will be coming soon, so watch for them.
