About Us

Headquartered in Los Angeles, where our history dates back to 1871, Smart & Final Stores, Inc. operates more than 300 grocery and foodservice stores under the “Smart & Final,” “Smart & Final Extra!” and “Smart Foodservice Warehouse Stores” banners in California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Utah and Montana, with additional stores in Northern Mexico operated through a joint venture.

Smart & Final is one of the longest continuously operated food retailers in the United States and has become an iconic brand name in the markets we serve. Originally known as the “smaller, faster warehouse store,” Smart & Final now has two types of store banners known as Smart & Final and Smart & Final Extra!. Smart & Final Extra! Stores are a newer and larger version introduced in 2008, in order to provide an assortment of both club and household-sized groceries and supplies for households, businesses and organizations. Ideal for one-stop shopping, Smart & Final Extra! stores combine the warehouse store with traditional grocery offerings like farm-fresh produce, fresh meat, frozen foods, dairy, deli, grocery basics, and natural and organic options.

Whether you’re shopping for your business or organization, stocking up and meal planning, hosting a party or preparing a meal for your family, Smart & Final Extra! offers sizes big and small, at great prices and without a membership fee.

While Smart & Final stores serve both households and businesses, Smart Foodservice Warehouse Stores serve foodservice professionals, operators of small restaurants, catering companies, businesses and nonprofits. For more on Smart Foodservice, visit their website here.
