A remodeled Ralphs supermarket has opened on Lincoln Boulevard near the Marina Freeway entrance. Following nearly two months of renovations, the supermarket at 4311 Lincoln Blvd. celebrated its grand reopening on Wednesday, May 13th. The store is open 24 hours.
In conjunction with the reopening, Ralphs’ charitable organization, The Ralphs Fund, has presented a $2,500 grant to support the cheer and song leader program at Venice High School.
Ralphs president Mike Donnelly welcomed the opportunity to assist the community.
“We believe in being an active and supportive member of the community,” he said. “It is our intention to continue to be a good corporate citizen in the Marina del Rey area. We are open to new ways to meet community needs and to participate in community improvement initiatives.”
Last year, Ralphs Grocery Company contributed more than $8 million to support education, hunger relief, women’s health and local nonprofit organizations in the communities served by the company’s stores.
The newly remodeled 47,113 square-foot Ralphs Fresh Fare supermarket features a new décor, new departments and services, wider aisles and a convenient layout that improves customers’ shopping experience while helping to conserve energy and reduce waste, a Ralphs spokesperson said.
The remodeled store also uses the latest green technology to improve energy efficiency in daily store operations. The store is expected to consume about 15 percent less energy than a typical Ralphs store today and about 25 percent less energy than a store built in 2000, the spokesperson said.
