Take a look inside: Gelson’s 1st store in West Los Angeles

The new store has a wine and sushi/tapas bar, as well as an outdoor patio

Southern California-based Gelson’s has opened its 28th full-service store in West Los Angeles. The store serves as the anchor of West Edge, a mixed-use residential/office/retail development currently under construction.

Designed by the award-winning firm Shook Kelley, which has worked on other new and renovated Gelson’s stores, the West L.A. property has 33,000-square-feet of modern design and amenities. From its polished concrete floors to hanging pendant lights throughout, the store is accented with geometric metal shapes, light wood slats and playful wall art. The color palette is based on the Gelson’s logo with a spectrum of dark caramel, mahogany and taupe, accented by creams and blue-greens.

The store has a wine and sushi/tapas bar, which has a quartz counter and contemporary furniture as well as an outdoor patio. Along with a Wolfgang Puck Express build-your-own pizza bar and a café and bakery with adjacent seating, Gelson’s West L.A. features serviced deli, meat/seafood, produce cutting/juicing, and floral sections, in addition to a self-serve salad bar, hot food and soup bar, poke bar, and dedicated wine and cheese section.

“The demand has long existed for Gelson’s in West L.A., and we are excited to be the grocery anchor in this new mixed-use development,” said Gelson’s President & CEO John Bagan. “We have carefully grown the Gelson’s brand for more than seven decades. This is a long-awaited milestone for us which we look forward to celebrating with the local community.”
