Grand Opening and Special Events Planned

A signature store for Vons is opening in the "Heart of San Diego".

Dating back to being in the Mission Hills and Hillcrest community since August 1958, Vons on Washington Street reopens for business on Thursday, March 29 with a grand opening event.

Prior to the grand opening, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, March 28 Vons will host a free buffet lunch at the store, as well as a charitable wine tasting reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. to benefit Mama’s Kitchen. The wine tasting will be open to the community. A minimum donation of $25 will be required for entry. All proceeds will support Mama’s Kitchen.

In terms of what customers should expect from the new store, there will now be a full line up of Lifestyle amenities. At 57,492 square feet, the new store will provide customers with three times the shopping space and a host of new amenities, including full service meat/seafood, bakery and deli departments, as well as an upscale liquor department, a Starbucks and pharmacy.

Vons recognizes that this store is a state of the art Vons in a convenient location with ample parking. This is a reflection of Vons taking the concept very early to the community for input and support. This was a prime factor in its acceptance by all those involved. According to a Vons’ representative, this is the community’s project in the truest sense of the words.

Though the design was constrained by the lot size and topographical conditions, the new building with state of the art equipment comes with energy star ratings unlike the old market. The store also utilizes air cooled condensers which eliminates the use of domestic water in cooling. The store also features energy efficient lighting on the sales floor as well as LED lighting in the frozen food cases.

Vons thanks the community for its support and patience throughout the planning and construction process. They say, “This is your store – we are extremely proud of it and we hope you are too.”
