Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Markets
It was good while it lasted….real good. We love everything about this chain of local neighborhood markets located in the Southwest, but all good things must end, and the end is near for Fresh & Easy, as we know it.
Owned by the UK grocery giant, Tesco, Fresh & Easy sadly has not met earnings expectations according to reports, and in early 2013 will either close shop, or (hopefully) be sold to the highest bidder.
We’ve grown very fond of the outstanding bargains on wine, the top-notch Italian bread from their in-house bakery, the assortment of high quality heat-and-eat items, and their selection of international grocery staples. Most of all we’ll miss Fresh & Easy’s biggest asset, the wonderfully helpful employees who have taught us everything we know about self-serve check-out (something we refuse to do in any other grocery store, just because).
Our neighborhood will never be the same without Fresh & Easy.
