SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Lazy Acres, a natural/organic food store here owned by Bristol Farms, said it would open its second store early next month in Long Beach, Calif.
The original store here has been in operation since 1991. It was acquired in 2005 by Bristol Farms, an upscale operator based in Carson, Calif., during the period Bristol was a wholly owned subsidiary of Albertsons. The store carries organic produce and dairy products, cheeses and wines from local producers and suppliers around the world, beef free of added hormones or antibiotics, free-range poultry and fresh seafood.
"Lazy Acres' focus on service and variety of healthy living products has been central to its success,” said Adam Caldecott, senior vice president of marketing. “The wholesome community market will remind you of how it used to be, bringing back the good feeling of slower times, genuine service and real food." At its store here the company has developed "a reputation as a resource for education on a healthy lifestyle," Caldecott said.
