El Segundo, Calif. Construction has begun on the newest Fresh & Easy store, located on East Adams Boulevard in South Los Angeles. The store is part of a mixed-use development project, the company said. The store will operate on the ground floor of the building, and encompass 19,000 sq. ft. of retail space. The building will also feature 80 apartments built three levels above the store.
Fresh & Easy currently operates 63 stores across Southern California, Nevada and Arizona, including 11 in Los Angeles County. Earlier this year, the company opened a store in the City of Compton, Calif., confirming Fresh & Easy's commitment to open in all different types of neighborhoods, including those that have been traditionally underserved.
