Fresh & Easy Coming To Sactown – Just Not Natomas

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz
Fresh & Easy on Wednesday announced plans to open six grocery stores in the Sacramento region – none of which will be located in Natomas.
Two stores already built in Natomas will remain unopened for the foreseeable future, according to store officials.
“No update on those two sites yet,” Fresh & Easy spokesman Brendan Wonnacott wrote Wednesday in an e-mail to THE NATOMAS BUZZ.
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson and city Councilmember Jay Schenirer attended a groundbreaking of the company’s new store at 34th and Broadway in the Oak Park neighborhood on Wednesday. During the event, Fresh & Easy announced plans to open six stores in the Sacramento region in 2012:
  • Watt Ave. & El Camino Ave. in Sacramento
  • 34th St. & Broadway in Sacramento
  • Mack Rd. & Franklin Blvd. in Sacramento
  • Lincoln & Sterling Road in Lincoln
  • Elk Grove Florin Rd. & Calvine Road in Elk Grove
  • E. Natoma St. & Blue Ravine Road in Folsom
Natomas-area residents seeking an alternative to existing grocery store chains, have been clamoring for years for the two Fresh & Easy stores built on Northgate Boulevard and Del Paso Road to open.
The store on the 3300 block of Northgate Boulevard, which  appears on the Fresh & Easy website as “coming soon” is already outfitted with shelves and other fixtures such as shopping baskets visible through the window. Sources say the store on Del Paso Road is also ready to go and just needs groceries.
