Smith's Food & Drug next week will hold grand openings for six stores recently converted from the Food 4 Less banner in the Las Vegas area.
The new stores, to be unveiled under the Smith's name on March 4, mark the completion of Food 4 Less' exit from the Vegas market, announced previously. Smith's and Food 4 less are divisions of Cincinnati-based Kroger Co.
The company said each store received $4 million in renovations, including enhancements to the pharmacy, deli and bakery counters, service met and seafood departments, floral selections and self-checkout stations. The location at 8180 Las Vegas Blvd. will also offer fresh sushi, Boars Head deli meat, and the first Murray’s Cheese in Nevada.
“We are delighted to bring new services and a wider selection of items for our new customers by opening these six new stores throughout the Valley,” said Jay Cummins, Smith’s president. “Having the familiar faces of former Food 4 Less associates greet them in these new Smith’s stores will make their visits even more enjoyable.”
All 800 former Food 4 Less employees will transition into positions with the new Smith's stores. The banner currently operates 37 locations in Southern Nevada, with 15,600 associates serving customers in seven western states.
