Fresh & Easy: 'We Don't Have Plans to Close Stores'

The British-owned 'Neighborhood Market' mass-emails a change of heart.

Remember when Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market said it was giving up the food fight? Remember when the British grocery food chain said—around last year's holiday season, no less—that it was selling or closing its stores?

Well, forget all that.

The management of the Tesco-owned stores has mass-emailed the following:

Thank you for being a Friend of Fresh & Easy. We wanted to reach out to you to address numerous news and online reports about the future of our stores.

Our parent company Tesco is conducting a strategic review of Fresh & Easy—they're looking at all options to find the best outcome for the neighborhood market that you and we have come to love. While we don't know exactly what that outcome will be, or if Tesco will continue to own the company, we're confident that Fresh & Easy can continue to be your favorite market.

We want to assure you: we don't have plans to close stores. We're still committed to providing delicious, wholesome and affordable food every day. We're still Fresh & Easy; open for business with everything that you enjoy about our store, with even more exciting things to come. That's why we're going to keep on fighting the good food fight.

Now, more than ever, we appreciate your energy in our stores and being able to share a smile with you. We look forward to seeing you soon and thank you for your continued support.

If Tesco's optimism rings true, Hollywood's Fresh & Easy location at 7021 Hollywood Blvd. might remain open.

That place is awesome. It's too bad people are cheap and would rather shop at places like winco and save a couple of pennies on low grade produce and meat that tastes like dog food. Hell between the coupons and the friends rewards program its cheaper to shoo at fresh and easy anyways. Plus I don't have to walk a mile and a half threw their store for some eggs!!!!

Ya!! I hate those other stores. You can never find anything. Fresh and Easy has the nicest employees of any grocery store I shop at, hands down! People think they are pricy and they are NOT AT ALL. I get smoking deals in there. Plus it doesn't smell like turtle urine like food city!! Viva Fresh and easy!!

Fresh and easy or die!! I love my neighborhood market and am hoping for the best possible outcome. I don't shop anywhere else but here bc of the excellent quality and freshness of all their products. I have been spreading the word to everyone I know to support fresh & easy bc it's the best grocery chain to come to America ever. Hands down. Spread the word! Shop Fresh & Easy only!!
