CARLSBAD, CA — The Jimbo’s store in Carlsbad will soon have a new look.
The premier natural foods grocery store chain announced the store in The Forum Carlsbad off Calle Barcelona and El Camino Real is undergoing renovations.
According to the company, the location’s new look will be inspired by the customer-centric Carmel Valley store, which opened last year. The retailer will add new cases to the store’s perimeter departments, expand the bakery, and increase seating in the outdoor dining area.
Renovations are slated to be completed this fall.
“After such a great response to the new look and feel at our Carmel Valley location last year, we decided to enhance the customer experience in our Carlsbad store by offering a similar look and feel to our loyal North County customers,” said Jim “Jimbo” Someck, founder of Jimbo’s.
The Carlsbad store will be the second store on the West Coast to remove all single-use plastic water bottles from its premises, according to the company. To encourage the use of reusable water bottles, the renovated Jimbo’s location will have a refillable water station that will allow customers to fill their personal reusable bottles for free.
The updated store will also continue to feature 100 percent organic produce and bulk, along with a variety of vitamins and personal care products, natural meats, sustainably-sourced seafood and an expanded bakery.
“We are committed to providing our customers and employees with the safest shopping experience and work environment possible,” Someck said. “Throughout this renovation process, and after the project has been completed, we will be taking precautionary measures to assure our team working on-site is safe and healthy and our customers have a clean environment to shop.”
There are five Jimbo’s stores in San Diego County in Carlsbad, Carmel Valley, Escondido, 4S Ranch and Downtown San Diego.
