On Thursday March 19, 2016, Mayor Aja Brown and the Compton City Council welcomed Grocery Outlet to the City of Compton. Grocery Outlet replaced the former Fresh N’ Easy Neighborhood Market, located at 2175 W. Rosecrans Avenue Compton, CA. 90222. During the ceremony Mayor Brown stated, “As an administration we are focused on bringing healthier options to the Compton community. It’s truly important for us not only to have healthy accessible food, but also to focus on providing employment opportunities to our residents. We are big proponents for employing Compton residents and have passed policies for local hiring. I am pleased to say that Grocery Outlet has come in and already exceeded our expectations with over 85 percent local hires right here in our very own store.” During the grand opening ceremony, the Guerrero family, owners of the Grocery Outlet, donated $1,000 in food to the Salvation Army of Compton as well as $2,500 to Compton YouthBuild.  Watch full coverage of the story.
