On Engagement Day, Smart & Final employees ranging from regional managers to C-level executives arrive at their local store to roll up their sleeves and provide hands on support to meet the needs of the holiday throng. Even CEO Hirz will join in by helping to stock shelves, ring up customers and gather shopping carts in the parking lot. Starting at 8 AM Friday, Hirz will return to his bag boy roots from younger days as he chips in at the Burbank Smart & Final Extra! store at 3830 W. Verdugo Avenue.
Smart & Final offers a one-stop shopping experience where businesses, community organizations, and household shoppers can fulfil their grocery needs while at the same time stocking up on thousands of club-size products, all without a membership fee. All recently opened stores feature Smart & Final's new Extra! format, which includes expanded frozen, deli and meat sections, a full produce section, organic and natural food products, high quality perishables and meats, a wide selection of private label offerings, and unique products such as self-serve bulk goods by the pound and oven-roasted chicken. Select stores also offer additional services such as a hot bakery, sushi and cut fruit offerings.
Furthermore, through its recently announced First Street First Percent campaign, customers can help give back to their own communities. When customers purchase First Street private label items, Smart & Final will donate the first one percent of net profits to the Smart & Final Charitable Foundation™ which supports local nonprofits such as Boys & Girls Clubs, food pantries and Little League organizations.
