Narrow aisles full of displays, big carts, so be careful. I had to wait a lot to be able to proceed down certain aisles...but I suppose that could be positive because there is lots of stuff? Good prices on volume items, less so on regular, grocery sized items.

I went to the interview in la Mesa Store . The event was Saturday Oct 16, 2021 at 3681 avocado Blvd. La Mesa, Ca 91941 I met Sug and mark it was great interview I can lift 50 pounds I can work nights and days in when you have work experience it’s talking about your skills. I like a call back getting hired process. He said he likes me a lot.

Newly remodeled and beautiful inside now. Much larger selection of products and produce and bulk Goods. I sent a couple of pictures to a friend and said guess where this is and they couldnt believe it when I said it was Smart & Final. Great prices and sell things that the grocery stores do but also the big boxes like Costcos but in more realistic sizes. Will probably start shopping here more than I used to due to the better selection.

The beef short ribs were on sale, so made the trip over. The line was lonnnnng for check-out. But, I heard the call over the PA for cashiers up front. The line moved swiftly soon after. Great customer awareness and quality products.

This is literally one of the worst grocery stores Ive ever been to. I went in there after I had surgery on my knee I needed use the electric cart. None of them were charged. The assistant manager did not care that I just had surgery on my leg. The level of rudeness as well as apathy toward a customer woz truly disturbing. If I could have given it no stars I would have.

I enjoy shopping at this store. They offer a wide array of items; kitchen necessities, hard to find items, and commercial grade products. Its the only place I can find such the green tea I drink daily.

**Great store with THE NICEST STAFF**I have been shopping at this store for about a year. They had a remodel during this time and the staff were SO nice and helpful as they had to rearrange the store so many times. Their selection is hands down the best in the area. Produce is fresh and fairly priced. I enjoy shopping here and will continue to give them my business regularly. Again the staff are SO nice!

This place has come through in the clutch. If you ever need to buy anything in bulk but are not really into Costco, smart and final has got you covered. The quality of Costco goods is superior but as far as bang for the buck goes, and not paying for a membership, it’s pretty good.

This is one of my favorite Smart & Final stores, easy access, rarely crowded and well stocked.

One thing smart & final needs to do is add more people at the registers. Truffle had always been a wait, even before covid-19.

Great place to shop, but there is a particular employee that was incredibly rude to me. Her name is Jessica. The only words she spoke to me were my total. No hello, no have a nice day, no smile. There were literally no customers before or after me and I only had two items. I hope she finds a job where she isn’t so miserable.

Helpful staff, clean organized, great selection of organic produce as well as pretty much every basic food item you could need. Sad to see they dont sell popcorn machines, pretzel machines, etc.like they used to 11+ years ago. One of my favorite stores to shop when I get the time.

Under construction currently, so it looks like theyre expanding. Great for things the grocery store doesnt usually have like Torani syrup and a large variety of precooked frozen foods for catering. They even have fresh produce and alcohol.

Kind of between a regular grocery store and a bulk grocery store. Relatively small or bulk the carries things and larger sizes and most grocery stores. Good produce.

Review №56

Stopped in after work and purchased three items. Went to the 10 items or less register only to find a customer in front with in excess of twenty items. (Not the first time at this store.) When I asked the cashier why this is allowed, she stated her manager told her to take anybody to speed up the other lines. Excuse me! Then I should wait in the longer line? The cashier should have the ????? to tell that customer that this is an Express Lane. Is the cashier not trained or is the manager not manageing the store?

This is a great place to get large economical sizes of things like spices, canned vegetables, sauces, etc. You dont have to buy a membership like the other place. Also good if you are having a party & need larger quantities of your normal foods. Sometimes the prouce is cheap, but sometimes it is pretty expensive. Be aware of other supermarkets specials, to get the beat deals.

They have very good prices and products on sale, but today a somewhat racist lazy cashier has made me decide never to return here againI have seen her go out of her way for caucasian customers many times when i have visited the store but never lift a finger to help me for any of my questions,she has also been rude to family members who visit the store as well, her answer is always we are out. Or shell ignore the ad prices and try to over charge me, Or worse shell completely ignore you when you ask questions about the ad or if they have any more in stock,Only gonna be going to Costco and other places from now on.
