Fresh & Easy announces Sacramento store openings

You've probably heard for some time that Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market was going to give Trader Joe's a run for its money and set up new stores around the Sacramento area. Look for five Fresh & Easy stores to open in early March, with its line of ready-to-cook meals and house branded products that feature competitive prices. According to a release, the openings of these five stores will create "100 good jobs with benefits" locally. The British-based company currently operates stores around southern California, and in Nevada and Arizona.

One change to earlier plans: Fresh & Easy will not open on Fair Oaks Blvd. in the former Ethan Allen furnishings store. Here's the list of stores and their grand opening dates:


Mack Rd. & Franklin Blvd.
Watt & El Camino


Lincoln & Sterling in Lincoln
Elk Grove Blvd. & Calvine Rd.
Natoma St & Blue Ravine in Folsom.
