2 New Grocery Store Options coming soon in Lincoln, CA

Fresh and Easy
From what I understand, the new “Fresh and Easy” grocery store will be opening tomorrow. They are located next to Lowe’s in the Sterling Pointe shopping center and will be a good option in addition to the Safeway and Raley’s that are already here in town. I haven’t ever been into a “Fresh and Easy”, but it sounds like it will be a smaller grocery store that focuses on more healthy food. Their website also says that they are a “green building” and try to use natural light and energy savings techniques so they can pass the savings on to the customer. I am sort of excited to go check it out, I may have a preconceived idea of what it will be like that may be incorrect, but I get the feeling that it will be a store between a Trader Joes and a Whole Foods. It will be neat to have another grocery store option in Lincoln right away.

The other store coming in soon is one of the WalMart Neighborhood Markets. They just started putting up the temporary fencing around their job-site this week. This store will be located right on Hwy 65 as it goes through town (“G” Street between 2nd and 3rd) where the old Rainbow Market was. A lot of business owners in the area are excited about the store coming in as they think it may help drive traffic to their stores. Many of the tenants at the Lincoln Business Center, where my office is, feel that it will benefit their restaurants, hair salon, vacuum repair shop, sign store, Koi Pond store, Filipino goods shop and more…
