Westcore Properties, owner and property manager of the Alpine Creek Town Center, has announced that Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market will join the center’s quality tenants in the previous Daniel’s Market space. Fresh & Easy signed a 10-year lease for 22,015 square feet of retail space at the center at 1347 Tavern Rd. The financial terms weren’t disclosed.
“We’re excited to have Fresh & Easy on board,” said Hack Adams, senior vice president of leasing for Westcore Properties. “Fresh & Easy will become a staple for the Alpine community as residents seek wholesome, healthy food for their families.” Hack said the company’s commitment to providing good food at a cost savings, while also giving back to each community it serves, was important to Westcore Properties “as we continue to look for ways to support Alpine with a well-rounded tenant mix.”
Fresh & Easy offers a wide range of its own brand of products including freshly prepared meals with no artificial colors, flavors, high-fructose corn syrup and no added transfats. The company’s stores are designed with energy efficiency to pass along cost benefits to customers. According to Adams, Fresh & Easy plans to open in August 2012 with space improvements starting in mid-February.
As a community champion, Fresh & Easy pledges $1,000 to a neighborhood charitable group with each new store opening. Alpine residents can nominate local groups now by visiting www.freshandeasy.com/nominategroup.aspx. The company operates stores in California, Arizona and Nevada.
