Smart & Final Associates Support Stores for Engagement Days!

Smart & Final’s celebration of Engagement Days, held Thursday and Friday, July 2 and 3, included all hands on deck, with corporate and non-store associates from all levels working in stores to help handle the pre-Fourth of July crowd. The holiday weekend is one of Smart & Final’s busiest.

Even Smart & Final CEO, Dave Hirz—a former bag boy himself—took fun by stocking shelves, ringing up customers, and even gathering all the carts in the parking lot!

Now, in its third year, the Engagement Days event was conceived as a way for Smart & Final non-store associates to engage with store associates to get a deeper understanding of in-store activity while supporting stores and customers during the busiest time of the year. The Engagement Days celebration takes place twice a year, preceding the 4th of July and Thanksgiving.
