​Smart and Final Extra
Coming to Duarte Around July 2016

Weingarten Corporation, owner of the Buena Vista shopping center, has announced that Smart & Final Extra, the consumer-focused model of the traditional warehouse store, will be coming to Duarte around July 2016. The new store will take approximately 2/3 of the space recently vacated by Ralph’s who closed in July.

This newer concept from Smart & Final will provide Duarte and other area customers with expanded “everyday” grocery selections such as to-go meals, baby products, grooming merchandise and a larger selection of fresh produce all at warehouse pricing.

Most of the new Smart & Final Extra! Stores are larger than their traditional warehouse models carrying 4,500 more basic grocery items in smaller sizes to meet the weekly grocery shopping needs of everyday shoppers.

The Los Angeles-based non-membership warehouse chain Smart & Final operates 98 of its 254 stores under the new Smart & Final Extra banner. In 2015, the company plans to add 20 additional Extra stores. 

​Grocery Outlet Bargain Market Coming to Duarte Around July

The former Mike’s Food location will be the new home for Grocery Outlet Bargain Market. The space is 18,000 square feet.

The property owner is in the process of a major façade enhancement for the building that includes the former Mike’s Food space, Young’s Gourmet, the barber shop and Little Caesars. Construction has started on the project.

Duarte Businesses Collect Batteries
Making Recycling Easier

Two businesses in the City of Duarte are part of 38 establishments in the San Gabriel Valley participating in a pilot program that aims to increase battery recycling within the City and throughout the Valley. The state of California banned batteries from disposal in landfills in 2006 in an effort to recycle more metals and to reduce groundwater contamination caused by the presence of batteries in landfills.

The following locations are participating in Duarte as battery take-back sites:

Frontier Hardware, 2137 Huntington Dr.
Route 66 Car Wash, 2110 Huntington Dr.

Residents can conveniently bring any household batteries (rechargeable or alkaline that weigh less than 11 lbs.) and cell phones to the take-back locations. This means that old lithium-ion cell phone and camera batteries along with traditional AAA-D batteries can be brought to the same convenient take-back location. Signs on store windows identify take-back locations. Customers can turn in their batteries at the marked battery recycling boxes inside the store. Simple instructions on how to safely recycle batteries are located on each take-back box. Full boxes of batteries are mailed to recycling facilities at no charge to the participating businesses.

Thanks to an approximate $396,000 grant from the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) has been able to facilitate a pilot-recycling program for household batteries. The SGVCOG is working to make battery recycling more convenient by partnering with local businesses to become battery take-back locations. The Call2Recycle® program is paying for all disposal costs associated with the battery recycling. This take-back process reduces costs to the public because battery producers pay for the shipping and recycling. Furthermore, recycling is more convenient for consumers because local retailers throughout the San Gabriel Valley host collection locations.

For more information about the battery-recycling program or to find a take-back location near you go to www.SGVCOG.org/batteryrecycling or contact Nicholas Conway, SGVCOG Executive Director at (626) 457-1800. For more information about CalRecycle go to www.calrecycle.ca.gov.
