Confirmed: Fresh And Easy Plans to Open Second Store on Crenshaw; Breaks Ground at Jefferson (see comments)

Via Curbed LA: Thursday, February 10, 2011, by Dakota Smith


Editors Note - (By Enhager - Thanks Flygirl72 for spotting the news and sharing it with us. I struck through an error from  CurbedLA. HOPE is still fighting the Fresh & Easy at 52nd and Crenshaw, which passed with  majority support form the City Council and Community. This one clearly says Jefferson and Crenshaw.

Thanks to FlyGirl72 for bringing this to our attention. CurbedLA mistook this location for the one Fresh and Easy is trying to open three miles south on Crenshaw and 54th. After a bit of digging I found this press release via Brendan Wonnacott of Fresh & Easy that confirms the second location!


The 45,000 square foot West Angeles Plaza was led by West Angeles CDC and is directly across from the North Campus of West Angeles Church on Crenshaw Boulevard. The project will feature a new Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market, as well as a bank, and will bring fresh, wholesome food to the neighborhood.


Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market today joined Bishop Charles E. Blake of West Angeles Church of God in Christ, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, City Councilmember Herb Wesson, County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, City Controller Wendy Greuel and the West Angeles Community Development Corporation (CDC) in breaking ground on a new commercial office and retail center on the corner of Crenshaw & Jefferson Boulevards.

Fresh & Easy says it recruits from the neighborhoods it serves and the Jefferson & Crenshaw store is expected to employ 20 to 30 people. Entry-level positions start at $10 an hour in California and offer quarterly bonuses of up to 10% as well as a 401(k) with company match.

One year ago this month, Fresh & Easy opened its first South Los Angeles store at Central & Adams as part of a mixed-use development that has already started to transform the neighborhood. A video about the first South LA opening is available on Fresh & Easy’s YouTube channel:

The one at Jefferson and Crenshaw is new to me. I have heard people talk about it and assumed they had the streets wrong. So now we may have two! Fantastic. Let's try to find out more.
