Gelson’s Markets, one of California’s premier supermarket chains, will be celebrating the grand opening of its third San Diego store located within close proximity to La Jolla’s Bird Rock Community at 730 Turquoise Street (old Albertson’s/Haggen location) on May 26 at 9 a.m.
The grand opening will be celebrated throughout the week, kicking off with a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. Get there early and be one of the first 200 customers and you will receive a gift bag valued at $20. In addition, customers will have the opportunity to sample featured merchandise and dishes on opening day and throughout opening week.
“We’re very proud to show off our first fully remodeled San Diego store,” says Rob McDougall, Gelson’s President and CEO. “This little store will really pack a punch, and we’re squeezing the best of Gelson’s products and services into this great location. With its proximity to La Jolla’s Bird Rock community, Gelson’s Pacific Beach will fill a unique neighborhood need and we aim to continually enhance the shopping choices for residents, as well as visitors.”
Gelson’s Pacific Beach new features include: new salad, hot foods and antipasti bars; a carving cart within the service deli, wellness set and an enhanced juice and cut fruits counter. The completely remodeled location will also feature new check stands and a customer service desk to facilitate the company’s signature service offerings.
Founded in 1951, Gelson’s currently operates 18 full-service specialty grocery stores in Southern California. The supermarket chain, long revered by chefs, celebrities and foodies in Los Angeles and Orange County, purchased three locations in San Diego from Haggen after the chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in late 2015.
