Smith's Opens Remodeled 4500 South Store

Press Release

May 23, 2013

Smith’s Food & Drug celebrated the remodel of its grocery store at 845 E. 4500 South in Salt Lake on Wednesday with a ribbon cutting attended by government leaders, Smith’s executives and the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce.

The $3.3 million remodel is meant to bring a market-feel shopping experience with contemporary details, dark woods and rich wall colors. Improvements of the 72,209 square -foot store include the addition of a sushi bar, destination station for cooked meals for take-out, bulk foods area with more than 200 selections, an entire aisle dedicated to natural foods, and expanded pharmacy.

Two former entryways have been combined into a center entrance with two-stage energy saving vestibule. Chilled grocery cases house energy-efficient motion-sensitive LED lights that reduce energy usage by two-thirds.

In addition, Smith’s has introduced Simple Truth products, which are free from 101 artificial preservatives and ingredients that some customers have said they do not want in their foods, such as aspartame, high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats. There are more than 250 Simple Truth items across 40 product categories including milk, salads, cereals, dried fruit, yogurt and chips that are located throughout store aisles.

“This has been an exciting process for our 136 store associates and we are delighted to bring an exciting ‘new' Smith's shopping experience to our customers," said Wendy Terry, store manager.
