Encino, Calif. (August 2, 2017) – Gelson’s Markets, one of California’s premier supermarket chains, is excited to open its first store in Thousand Oaks, located at 1736 E.

The highly anticipated opening will commence with a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. In addition to making donations to local charity organizations, Gelson’s will thank its first 50 customers with a special gift bag valued at $20. Customers will be able to enjoy live music at the first three days of the store’s opening in the afternoon (hours TBD). All customers will have the opportunity to sample featured merchandise and dishes throughout opening week.
“We are excited to come to Thousand Oaks and serve the growing Ventura County area,” said Gelson’s President & CEO Rob McDougall. “This was one of the former Haggen stores that Gelson’s purchased, and we have worked to customize it for the local neighborhood, including an in-store pharmacy.”
The Gelson’s Thousand Oaks store features an emphasis on fresh, great-tasting food across a broad spectrum, including grass-fed beef, organic and non-GMO items, local products, and vegan, vegetarian and raw food options. The full-service deli will offer signature creations along with healthful and delicious salads from Gelson’s Registered Dietitian, for the benefit of Thousand Oaks residents, employees and visitors alike. Gelson’s Thousand Oaks will include a carving station (selected hours), gourmet cheese section, olive cart, soup and salad bar, hot food bar, fresh sushi and poke bar, kosher foods and bakery, along with a coffee bar, dining area, floral department, custom and ready-made gift baskets, and free gift wrapping.
