Long Beach before the end of the year will be home to its very own Amazon Fresh, the newly-launched grocery store from the e-commerce giant that also owns Whole Foods Market. Amazon Fresh replaces Haggen Food & Pharmacy, 6235 E. Spring St., according to leasing data obtained Wednesday by What Now Los Angeles (WNLA). The site has been under construction since earlier this year although the tenant had not yet been announced. An opening is expected in December, according to an announcement earlier this week from Long Beach’s Fifth District’s representative Stacy Mungo.
“It’s been a long time coming and our residents and neighbors have been waiting patiently,” Mungo wrote in Monday’s announcement. “I’m excited to see a new grocery concept serving our community and providing essential jobs right when we need them most.”
Amazon Fresh launched its first-ever store with an opening this month in Woodland Hills and is continuing its aggressive expansion across SoCal and beyond including in Porter Ranch. The technology-laden grocery store features Dash Carts which allows customers a checkout-less option and Alexa kiosks that answer questions like, “Which aisle has the milk?” To read all of WNLA’s coverage of the new grocery store, click here
