US-based supermarket chain Ralphs Grocery is set to reopen its renovated supermarket on 26 May in South Los Angeles.

The remodelled 45,000ft² store features expanded and upgraded departments for produce, meat, seafood, bakery and deli, as well as a variety of organic and natural meats.

Ralphs president Valerie Jabbar said: "Our remodelled Western & Manchester store has an even greater focus on health and wellness with a large assortment of natural and organic offerings.

"We designed this store with the neighbourhood it serves in mind, offering specialised design features, an outstanding selection of fresh food options, personalised customer service and great prices."

"At Ralphs, we focus on friendly service and fresh products, and we believe that shoppers will be pleased with our renovated store with a new bakery."

The store also includes an assortment of natural foods, organic fruits and vegetables, a bakery and a sandwich bar at the deli.

An in-store Starbucks is also added during the renovation, with seating and free Wi-Fi.

The Western & Manchester supermarket will also contain a money shop to offer financial services such as money transfers, money orders, payroll and government check-cashing.

Managed by Ray Sum, the new store is expected to provide 90 full-time and part-time job opportunities.

Sum said: "At Ralphs, we focus on friendly service and fresh products, and we believe that shoppers will be pleased with our renovated store with a new bakery, deli, fresh meats, greater selection of fresh produce, as well as the great prices we offer every day.”

Founded in 1873, the supermarket chain operates a total of 197 locations.
