Headquartered in Los Angeles, where it was started 140 years ago, Smart & Final Stores, Inc. operates approximately 250 grocery and foodservice stores under the “Smart & Final”, “Smart & Final Extra!” and “Cash&Carry Smart Foodservice” banners in California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho and northern Mexico. While Smart & Final stores target both the foodservice and household markets, Cash&Carry Smart Foodservice stores are focused exclusively on serving foodservice professionals. Foodservice customers typically include operators of small restaurants, catering companies, businesses, clubs and civic organizations. For household customers, Smart & Final stores provide a convenient, low-cost source for cooking and cleaning needs and are seen as the preferred destination for stocking-up their kitchens and preparing for holidays, parties and events.
Smart & Final Extra!, one of the company’s newest store concepts, is designed to enhance the household consumer’s shopping experience and also includes changes to benefit business customers. Smart & Final Extra! stores are much larger than a typical Smart & Final warehouse store and full of extra features. The stores carry a greatly expanded selection of products in key categories like produce, fresh meat, frozen foods, dairy, deli and grocery basics like cereal, yogurt, bread and snacks. Smart & Final Extra! combines the high quality fresh produce of a farmer's market, the low prices of a discount grocer and the large club size products of a traditional club store. But you don't need to buy in bulk when you shop at Smart & Final Extra! We also carry thousands of items in smaller, convenient sizes. In addition we have everything that small businesses, clubs and organizations need on a daily basis.
