Vons in La Jolla gets a makeover; now open 24 hours

After they figure out where Vons’ remodelers moved everything within the store at 7544 Girard Ave., shoppers will delight in a larger Starbucks kiosk, new checkout stands and refrigerated cases in produce, meat, dairy/deli and other departments.

Vons new look.

“We also replaced the shelving throughout the store, installed new lighting and changed the décor to create a warmer ambiance,” said Vons spokesman Carlos Illingworth. “Customers will also notice a wider selection of kosher items and organics, as well as an expanded assortment of local items and gluten-free products across all departments. Our wine department will now be staffed by a wine steward to help customers with selecting the perfect wine for any pairing. Also, the store will now be open 24-hours!”

In addressing the parking issues at the busy grocery store, Illingworth said, “In an effort to preserve as much parking for our customers as possible, at significant cost we have leased space behind the store and offsite for our employee parking. We have also contracted with a parking management company to enforce our parking policy, which limits parking on our property for Vons customers only.

“We simply cannot afford the inconvenience to our customers caused by allowing the tenants of neighboring properties to use our parking lot beyond the very limited use we now overlook.” — Susan DeMaggio
