Smart & Final Definitely Coming to Westlake Village

smart and final extra

It’s official: Smart & Final will definitely be moving in to where Haggen used to be – at the corner of Thousand Oaks Blvd. and Lindero Canyon (in the shopping center called Westlake Village Marketplace). Where Alberstons used to be. Three stores in a very short time! Whew!

At least the conjecture can end. In an email from a Smart & Final representative, I learned the following:

Smart & Final will open a new store at 5770 Lindero Canyon Road in West Lake Village under its Smart & Final Extra! format.

In comparison to traditional Smart & Final stores, Smart & Final Extra! stores offer shoppers expanded frozen, deli and meat sections, a full produce section, organic and natural food products, more high quality perishables and meats, a wide selection of private label offerings, goods tailored to business and household customers, and products offered in a broad range of sizes. In addition, the new store will include unique products such as oven-roasted chicken and self-serve dry bulk goods by the pound.

The Smart & Final Extra! format provides a one-stop shopping experience where businesses and organizations, as well as households, can purchase grocery and everyday staple needs while also stocking up on thousands of club-size products, all without a membership fee.

The new Westlake Village store is scheduled to open by the end of June 2016.

Personally, I’m thrilled. I like Smart & Final and whenever I have to go there, I visit the store in Woodland Hills, usually on the way home from the dentist or doctor. I think the new store will suit us just fine. What do you think?

Comments

  1. I’m not so sure. I’d rather have Gelsons or sprouts. But that’s just me.

  2. I’m a fan. I like buying pickles the. I need at least 6 types of pickles in my fridge.

  3. Diane King says:

    I too am thrilled for a Smart & Final extra opening nearby. But I would also like to see a Sprouts open up too!

  4. Diane King says:

    I know there is a Sprouts on Westlake, but it is a fraction the size of the Woodland Hills store.

  5. Would’ve much preferred a Whole Foods ( as the only WF are quite a drive in either direction) But will it have that Starbucks?

  6. When is the smart final come to westlake open

  7. When is smart and final open in westlake

  8. I would have much preferred a Whole Foods, since the nearnest one is in Thousand Oaks. Guess I’ll have to continue to drive.

    Smart and Final is a disaster. They should just go to a Vons, Albertsons or Ralphs and replicate what they have. They are still operating as an industrial store. The Westlake Village CA is just for emergency. It’s worst then Haggen and I am sure it will close out soon because of following reasons:
    – poor grocery
    – no presecription rug store! thats a disaster
    – no flower section, ballons. Alberstsons was so great. Just enter and they had massive fresh flowers and all party, birthday, events secion
    – no Starbucks
    – mediocre
    – no glacier water terminal outside

    We really miss Albertsons!

      It’s definitely not Albertsons! I don’t know. I went and gave Smart and Final a try. I think it’s a good place for bulk shopping or when they have a good sale. Not routine grocery shopping for weekly visits.
