Harbor City Gets ‘Fresh & Easy’

The Fresh & Easy grocery store in Harbor City opens Wednesday, Aug. 13 at 10 a.m.

The store is located at 26640 S. Western Ave. just north of Palos Verdes Drive North. It occupies the space formerly leased by JoAnn Fabrics.

The store will offer “fresh, wholesome foods at affordable prices for everyone,” according to a press release. It will carry national brands and Fresh & Easy private label products.

“Customers visiting the store will experience wider aisles for a faster, more convenient shopping trip,” the company said.

“We hope all of our new neighbors stop in to say hello and take some time to have a look around,” said store manager Jim Roth.

The British chain had been opening U.S. stores at a rapid clip, but slowed down this summer to reassess its operations.

The company opened a Manhattan Beach store last month. The Daily Breeze story contains background information about the chain.

Priority parking spaces are set aside for hybrid cars and adults with children.

Regular hours will be 8 a.m.-10 p.m. daily.
